Where to Dine in Brooklyn During NYC Restaurant Week 2022
Ask any New Yorker and they will tell you that some of the best food in the city can be found in Brooklyn. The borough is home to a variety of neighborhoods, each with their own character and charm and many with world-class dining.
With the 30th Edition of NYC Restaurant Week underway through August 21, you now have the chance to sample the best of Brooklyn's diverse culinary scene. Hundreds of restaurants throughout the borough are offering pri-fixe, multi-course meal specials.
Those visiting may not realize that Brooklyn itself is quite large. If it were designated as its own city, it would be the fourth largest in the country, and it is the most populous borough in NYC. As such, dining options are vast, and it can sometimes be difficult to narrow down a list of restaurants to try. To help, we've curated a list of some of the top restaurants in the borough, all of which are participating in this year's Restaurant Week series.
