The Top Restaurants In Brooklyn's Bed-Stuy

Candice Mcleggan

Over the past few years, the neighborhood of Bedford-Stuyvesant, affectionately referred to as ‘Bed-Stuy’, has been in a state of reconstruction. It is no longer a place that people think of with disdain or fear. In actuality, this neighborhood has a lot to offer with plenty of clothing shops, new buildings and homes, and great restaurants to visit. So the next time you’re visiting Brooklyn, check out some of the latest and greatest in Bed-Stuy.


Momo Sushi Shack

Momo Sushi Shack is a great option, especially if you’re dining out with a group. This restaurant offers plenty of tasty selections for vegetarians, vegans, and meat lovers. For the vegetarian, there’s handmade vegan gyoza, made with oyster mushroom, napa, and olive. If you’re in the mood for a heavier appetizer, you can try the Japanese fried chicken with orange, garlic, soy sauce, and saki. And of course, there’s every kind of roll you can imagine for the ultimate sushi fan.

Classic Mac n’ Chicken

Peaches Hothouse

It’s hard to find Southern food that reminds you of your grandmother’s home cooked meals here in NYC, but the search is officially over. Located on Tompkins Avenue, Peaches Hothouse, or sometimes just called the Hothouse, is a cozy restaurant that is exactly that – a hotspot in BedStuy, featuring all of the Southern classics. There’s plenty to choose from on the menu – from shrimp and grits, to blackened catfish and country ham. But what The Hothouse is really known for is its Nashville-style hot chicken, which comes in various degrees of spiciness and is well worth the wait. All dishes come with great side choices such as bacon potato salad, macaroni and cheese, and crispy coleslaw.

Pepperoni Pizza


We all know that pizza shops are a dime a dozen, but finding a really good pizza place? Priceless. But Roberta’s is more than just pizza; it’s a great choice for authentic Italian fare. It may look like your average hipster joint but the menu is very upper-echelon. In addition to the wood-fired pizzas, this restaurant has extensive menus that span from brunch to dinner. If you’re looking for a quick snack, there are meat and cheese plates and an impressive wine list. Want something heavier? Try the grilled pork with brussels sprouts, apple and fennel or the flank steak with sweet potato, grilled scallion, and vin cotto.

Tom’s Restaurant

People from all over gather outside Tom’s and patiently wait in line for the delicious breakfast and lunch. Not only do they feed you while you wait – they offer cookies, coffee, even little orange slices – the food is excellent once you’re inside. You can never go wrong with something sweet from the griddle, with choices of challah French toast, different flavors of Belgian waffles such as the pumpkin and walnuts waffle, and fluffy pancakes, all with different butter flavors as toppings. All of these can come with sweet (fruits, or ice cream toppings) or savory (your choice of bacon, pork, turkey or beef sausages) toppings. You definitely won’t be disappointed!

SoCo Restaurant and Bar

Another great place to tickle your taste buds with an fusion of flavors is SoCo. The cuisine is a mix of Cajun/Creole, barbecue, and soul food so this is another place that is perfect for group dining. There’s sure to be something for everyone with delicious dishes such as the smoked butternut squash ravioli, or the lobster, shrimp, and grits. The brunch menu even offers twists on normal fare such as the bourbon street eggs benedict, which consists of a shrimp and crawfish cake and poached eggs on a toasted mini bagel with Old Bay Hollandaise.
