An old school Bed-Stuy southern/soul food restaurant with outstanding crabcakes and frequent live jazz (always one, at least, on the first thursday of the month) as well as R&B, dance floor downstairs.

  • Jewish Children's Museum

    Jewish Children's Museum

    790 Eastern Pkwy
    The Jewish Children's Museum is the largest Jewish-themed children's museum in the United States. It aims for children of all faiths and backgrounds to gain a positive perspective and awareness of the Jewish heritage, fostering tolerance and understanding. The permanent collection features exhibits designed to be both educational and entertaining to children, often employing interactive multimedia. At the miniature golf course on the roof, for example, each hole represents a stage in Jewish life. The museum is in the Chabad-Lubavitch Chasidic community of Crown Heights near the headquarters of the Lubavitch movement. The museum is run by Tzivos Hashem, a Chabad organization dedicated to the education of Jewish children. The museum opened in 2004. In 2005, the museum was among 406 New York City arts and social service institutions to receive part of a $20 million grant from the Carnegie Corporation, which was made possible through a donation by New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg.

  • Folukie


    1168 Bedford Ave
    Great Trinidadian food in a small but stylish Bed-Stuy restaurant. The bigger draw, though, may be the music—jazz and R&B—which sees some really talented local musicians. Be sure to check the website to see who's playing when.

  • Goodbye Blue Monday

    Goodbye Blue Monday

    1087 Broadway
    M-Sa starting somewhere around 7PM-11PM. A somewhere between a club and cafe Bushwick indie rock and jazz venue for local music junkies, largely college-age, named after a Kurt Vonnegut story. All the various clutter and unorthodox aesthetic jumbles that make up the place are apparently for sale too, so you can take a piece of the experience home with you. They get a good deal of well-known indie rockers here (as well as really out there nonsense), and were awarded the "Best Place to Hear New Music in NYC" award from the Village Voice. Beer, wine, coffee, and WiFi.
  • Sista's Place

    456 Nostrand Ave
    Sista's is central Brooklyn's highest profile jazz venue, with performances at Sa 9PM and 10:30PM in their relatively small, friendly cafe space (performances are sporadic on other nights—call for schedule). It's also a political space, and the collective in charge sponsors Sunday afternoon panels on various issues relevant to the local community.
  • Saraghina

    435 Halsey St
    M-F 6PM-11PM, Sa-Su noon-4PM and 6PM-11PM. under $30. Located in the heart of Bed-Stuy, Saraghina is a fantastic pizza restaurant offering up freshly baked thin-crust pizzas for $16 or less - and that's for a good sized pie that one person could tuck away with some effort, but which is more easily shared by two. Favorites include the classic margherita and the proscuitto i funghi. Their oven is a true wood-burning brick unit, and their ingredients are fresh and succulent. In addition to pizza, Saraghina offers a menu of traditional Italian fare, including burratina, sautéed artichokes, swordfish carpaccio, and spaghetti with ragù di pesce, to name a few. The beer selection is a bit limited, but there are plenty of wines on the list, and the atmosphere - a deceptively small area converted from a storefront with lots of old wood paneling and hidden back dining room and garden - more than makes up for the brevity of the menu.
