Brooklyn’s a borough of great restaurants, but our readers think Skinflints in Bay Ridge eclipses them all. The longtime restaurant & bar offers a menu of burgers & other American eats, plus outdoor seating. The food is always good, and so is the service. The prices are extremely reasonable, especially considering how good the food is. They have some of the best burgers in Brooklyn, served on an English Muffin bun. It’s the simple feeling of a pub-style restaurant combined with delicious food and great service. There’s nothing like being able to order your favorite meal amongst friends and family at a great place that feels like it’s truly part of the community. Skinflints offers a modern but classic version of an unforgettable taste.

Though still relatively new to the nabe, Giacomo’s Wood Fired Pizza & Trattoria has already made a name for itself far beyond its roots in Bay Ridge. The authentic Italianstyle restaurant debuted at the corner of 79th Streeteet and Third Avenue in September, 2011 and has since proved that is has staying power, be it because of its exceptional fare, or its unbeatable customer service and wait staff. Founded by a family that has been in the restaurant and pizzeria businesses for over 40 years, it’s no wonder Giacomo’s knows what it’s doing. Its menu boasts everything from classic Italian dishes like baked ziti and gnocchi, to parmigiana heroes and its fan-favorite wood fired pizzas. that, and its relaxed atmosphere, helps to make it the best family restaurant in all of Brooklyn.
