Brooklyn Heights is known as a posh residential area filled with elegant brownstones and cobble stoned streets. It’s best known for the tree-lined promenade along the East River, with incredible views of Manhattan’s skyline and the Statue of Liberty. I love the open space, neighborhood feel, and laid back environment.
WHERE TO EAT:
Colonie has an amazing American menu with Italian influences. My favorite thing on the menu is the homemade pasta and fresh seafood. Everyone knows I love beer, and they have a local beer selection
Bonjour! Chez Moi is a chic French bistro with delicious classic French cuisine. My favorite dish is steak frites paired with a perfect peppercorn sauce. Like the name of the restaurant, you feel like you are right at home. After dinner, you must go downstairs to the owners’ basement bar Boudoir for some live music and a French 75.
My favorite coffee shop in Brooklyn Heights is Joe’s Coffee Company. I love the beautiful modern deco decor filled with students doing homework, parents with their kids, and local Brooklynites being there amazing low key selves. I am a sucker for their chai lattes and almond milk, and their music vibe is very cool. This amazing coffee shop is just steps away from my Exclusive listing: 94 Hicks Street.
