You might have been to Crown Heights but not even known it.

That place looks cute!” or “That place looks cool,” or “Where are we? We should come back here sometime and check out all these bars and restaurants,” or “OMG, that brownstone is SO gorgeous…”
The main thoroughfare of this neighborhood is Eastern Parkway, a tree-lined boulevard designed by Frederick Law Olmsted (AKA the guy that co-designed Central Park) which almost feels like something you’d discover in Paris.

Everyone here has a story to tell and a lot of those stories are told through food - so here is our guide to eat and drink your way through Crown Heights, date by date, and likely, make a few new friends along the way given the friendliness of this community.
