New York Magazine just named Zoe in Dumbo as the Best Brooklyn Boutique. Do you agree? What about Noisette in Williamsburg? or the handful of shops on Court Street like AliKat nyc, or Smith Street - Watts, Bird, Dear Fieldbinder or GirlCat on Atlantic?

What Boutique do you shop in Brooklyn for stylish clothes?

Best Neighborhood Restaurant - Bar Tabac, Brooklyn

Singin at Bar Tabac Brooklyn, originally uploaded by Jon Cronin.

Well according to this years 2008 Eat Out Awards from Time Out New York, Bar Tabac has been voted the best neighborhood restaurant in the city. Congratulations! This was one of the first places I really enjoyed in my neighborhood 7 years ago and it continues to be great. The food, the music, petanque and most important for the past few years the managment has been super nice and friendly! This is a not to miss spot on Smith Street.

Do you think it is the best neighborhood restaurant in the Brooklyn? If no than what is? I also really like Robin Du Bois (Garden) and Pit Stop (Brunch) .
