Park Slope, 5th Avenue…. and five other bakeries and donut shoppe…. Must return and have a brownie hot fudge sundae.  and I mean must! Or try the Chocolate Room on Court Street .

The Smith

At Lincoln center, just a regular reliable lunch/dinner place.  A salad, a piece of fish, a burger.  Cafe Fiorello and The Smith are next door to each other..
