Good eatin' in the borough

Yesterday, Mayor Bloomberg touted Brooklyn as the foodie destination in the city, saying: "It is amazing the change in Brooklyn in the last dozen years or thereabouts. I'm going to have dinner tonight in Brooklyn. Time and time again, when I say, 'Where do you want to go to have dinner?' Friends who've come from out of town pick restaurants in Brooklyn, and that is really different."

Our first reaction was "Duh," though it's never a negative to discuss the borough's dominance in the NYC dining scene.

To prove his point, the mayor was dining in Brooklyn last night. Though his staff wouldn't say where exactly, he's been known to frequent the Stone Park Cafe in Park Slope (as well as a few pizza places). And thanks to the Times, we know all about Hizzoner's eating habits.

Naturally, the River Cafe gets a shout out for fine dining, and the Post also mentions DUMBO's Vinegar Hill House, Williamsburg's Marlow & Sons, Bay Ridge's Tanoreen, Brooklyn Heights' Noodle Pudding, and Fort Greene's The General Greene as places to check out (what, nothing in Ditmas Park?), as well as those off the "eatin' track."

Where would you tell the mayor to make a reservation the next time he's in the borough?
