Brooklyn Eats Is Back On for 2008We are pleased by the imminent return of Brooklyn Eats, the borough’s own multi-restaurant tasting event that was on hiatus last year. Come April 30, you’ll find at least 30 participating restaurants at the Navy Yard. But why not even more? If you have a roti shop, trattoria, or Uzbek kebab house, contact the organizers: Brooklyn is a big place, and there’s room for everybody.

It’s not that there aren’t good restaurants in Brooklyn — far from it! It’s just that they’re so spread out that getting to many of them feels less like grabbing a bite to eat than making a pilgrimage. But you can conveniently affirm your faith in the borough’s food tomorrow night at the annual Brooklyn Eats tasting event, which convenes over 40 restaurants and stores in the downtown Marriot. For $75 in advance, $95 at the door, this cross-section of Brooklyn becomes your own personal all-you-can-eat buffet. Check out the Soul Spot, a beacon on Atlantic Avenue; Bierkraft’s tremendous beer selection; Kush Cafe’s aromatic French-African cooking; and, because you surely don’t want to neglect dessert, the ethereal Sweet Melissa Patisserie.
