American Restaurant

Cocktail Bar

“Clover Club has all the elegance and luxury of an Upper East Side bar infused with the relaxed vibes of Brooklyn. Enjoy the company of friends and family next to their cozy fireplace while you listen to jazz on one of their many jazz nights. This bar offers both evening and brunch cocktails, including the ‘Bloody Maria’ – a twist on the classic cocktail with blancotequila.”

Food & Drink Shop
$
“Two words: Breakfast. Sandwiches. A bacon-egg-and-cheese on a roll is a Saturday late-morning standby, but the righteous brunchtime subs at this beloved Carroll Gardens market-café are a welcome upgrade from that bodega classic. We’re talking Balthazar ciabatta loaded with scrambled eggs, salty Cabot cheddar and arugula, or a Taylor pork roll with American cheese on a Martin’s potato bun, delivered straight to the cozy dining room”
