The Ten Best Restaurants In Brooklyn

From pizza to seafood, here are some restaurants you don't want to miss.

The Ten Best Restaurants In Brooklyn

Brooklyn is definitely known for all of its authentic and famous food joints, but if you're a tourist, you should have an idea of where the best places are, regardless of the borough! Here's ten of what I believe are the best restaurants you can find around this part of the city.

1. Totonno Pizzeria Napolian

If you love pizza, then you know that New York pizza can't be beat! Take a trip down to Coney Island on Neptune Avenue and visit Totonnos! The pizza is made in a coal brick oven with thin crust and will be the best pizza you've ever had! Totonnos is famous and one for the books, and was rated the best pizza in New York State! I'm a little bit biased because it is my dads place but nothing beats it!

2. Nathan's

While you're in Coney Island enjoying amazing pizza, you should also take a trip down to Nathan's to get a hot dog. Another famous joint of Coney Island, there is nothing like a Nathan's hot dog and will have you coming back for more!

3. Brennan and Carr

If you're a lover of roast beef, then this is going to be one of your first stops! Brennan and Carr have perfected the roast beef sandwich for many years and has retained its cozy home feel. It is located right on Coney Island Avenue and Avenue U and is always a local's favorite!

4. Roll n' Roaster

Another famous roast beef joint, Roll n' Roaster, or RNR, is also famous for its slogan, "cheez on anything you pleez." Whether it's the roast beef or fries or literally anything, you can get your cheese fix here! RNR is a famous joint in Sheepshead Bay on Emmons Avenue, and once you taste it you will forever be obsessed!

5. Clementes

If you're a seafood lover like me, then Clementes is the place for you! Clementes is located in Sheepshead Bay right off the Belt Parkway. It is family owned and they have every seafood lovers dream! Whether it's lobster, crab, clams, shrimp or steak, there is something for everything and you will not be disappointed!

6. Gargulios

If you're looking for somewhere fancy to eat, then you're going to want to go back to Coney Island to Gargulios Italian Resturant! Only two blocks away from Totonnos, Gargulios is also family owned and is another famous restaurant of Coney Island. Gargulios is hands down has the best Italian food, and if Italian is your favorite, then you're sure to want to go there!

7. The Pearl Room

If you're in Bay Ridge, then be sure to stop in at The Pearl Room. The Pearl Room can be a bit expensive, but it definitely lives up to its prices. Another Italian restaurant that almost has Gargulios beat, The Pearl Room will have your taste buds wanting more! Also a great time to get dressed up!

8. The Kettle Black

If you're a lover of chicken wings, then The Kettle Black is for you! Also located in Bay Ridge, The Kettle Black is most famous for their "Wing Wednesday" which gives you a great discount on buckets of wings in every flavor possible, plus some! This is one place that will have you coming back for more!

9. Spumoni Gardens

Another famous pizzeria, Spumoni Gardens is located in Gravesend, Brooklyn. Spumoni Gardens takes on their own style of pizza, but nothing will beat their spumoni! You will want to come back for dessert every night!

10. Alice's Tea Cup

While not located in Brooklyn, you should still check out Alice's Tea Cup! There are many story book themed restaurants in the city, but my favorite is Alice in Wonderland! Enjoy your tea with different kinds of finger sandwiches and scones and don't forget about seconds! The walls and tables are covered in the story and it makes you feel like you're a part of it!

Where To Find The Best Coffee Drinks In America, According To A Survey

Here's the coffee shop where you should get your morning brew.


Coffee, for billions of people, is one of the only things that can get us out of bed (after hitting snooze a time or two), especially in 2020. Because, if we're being honest, is there anything that beats a quality cup of coffee on those mornings when all we wanted to do is roll over and go back to sleep? The answer is no. And if you're headed to a coffee shop to pick up your caffeinated beverage, you don't want to sleep on the best coffee drinks in America.

According to LiveShopper Sassie's Coffee Project survey, when it comes to chain coffee shops, there are definitely preferred spots you'll want to hit up for your go-to order — whether you order the classic, frozen, or flavored coffee, an espresso, tea, or other. To figure out the hot spots, 1,000 coffee drinkers across the United States took to LiveShopper's mobile app, PrestoShopper, to answer various questions about their coffee drinking habits and preferences. In return, these survey respondents got money back for their coffee — something any user who downloads the app can do as well (yes, even you).

How Much Of A Coffee Snob You Are, Based On Where You Live

Your state may determine how picky you are about your coffee.


When it comes to coffee, everyone has different criteria for what goes into their "perfect cup." Some caffeine lovers, though, are extra particular when it comes to their beloved beverage. One survey found that the state you're from (or the one you live in now) may play a part in determining how much of a coffee snob you actually are.

LiveShopper Sassie, the company behind this Coffee Project survey, received input from 1,000 coffee drinkers via their mobile app, PrestoShopper, to ask various questions about their coffee drinking habits and preferences. In return, these survey respondents got money back for their coffee — something any user who downloads the app can do as well (yes, even you).

This Hair Mask Is Like A 5-Minute Head Detox — It's The Best Thing I've Ever Put On My Dry Scalp

It's perfect for anyone who's disguised their dandruff as snowflakes.


- Like face masks, hair masks are a great way to do a more intense treatment that tackles more specific issues like dry strands or an itchy scalp.

- I don't necessarily suffer from dandruff, but my scalp can get a little itchy post-workout and in the colder months.

- I tried the Malin + Goetz Detox Scalp Mask and it was a game changer — my scalp felt cleaner, smoother, and more refreshed than ever in five quick minutes.

- The mask is a go-to for a clean detox of my hair and scalp after I've put a lot of product in my hair or done a lot of styling to it.

Like most self-proclaimed beauty guru and product junkie, I've been obsessed with my hair and hair products for decades. For me, the goal has always been to transform my dry, brittle strands into thick, shiny, and silky ones.

For that reason, I've spent a lot of time (and money) on styling and heat products that have, at times, made my hair look great at the expense of excess product buildup and heat damage.

Remember when thin eyebrows were in? Unfortunately, me too. If you've over-tweezed your eyebrows, you know how much of a painful and slow process it is to get them back to a "normal" shape — let alone trying to keep up with the newest trends that seem to come and go every other month.

But, what does that look like nowadays? A defined, thicker brow which, I will admit, takes a lot of time and practice to perfect.

As of October 19th, Drexel has 14 active cases (13 students and 1 employee). There has been a total of 113 cases in the Drexel community (104 students and 9 employees).

This semester has been pretty rough for most students. Online classes may have some perks, but overall it's often harder to learn and remember the material. CofC just finished midterms and every student I know feels burned out. This is a very frustrating feeling and it feels like things will never return to the way they were. Remember to go easy on yourself and just do your best.

Your body image has a huge impact on your sex life — let's be real, intimacy includes your body.
