On Friday there are no tours, but it's a popular hangout. More information on tours can be found at their website.

  • Junior's

    Junior's

    386 Flatbush Ave Ext
    Su-Th 6:30AM-Midnight, F-Sa 6:30AM-2AM. Sure, you can eat their famous cheesecake in Grand Central, but why not try the original?

The gracious waiters, dressed immaculately in suits and ties, are part of the atmosphere.

As is usual in Korean restaurants, the bulgogi is a good bet, but the grilled squid and the vegetable noodles are excellent as well.

    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.
