THE BITE: I confess. Despite being born and raised in Sheepshead Bay, it wasn’t until I was 16 or so that I ate at Randazzo’s Clam Bar, one of the neighborhood’s most legendary culinary staples. And it wasn’t until that summer day, when a high school friend’s parents took us out, that I tried a raw…

THE BITE: Looking back at our past editions of The Bite, I was aghast to see we hadn’t yet written about 1652 Sheepshead Bay Road’s Chayhana Salom. We’ve spilled a fair amount of digital ink on the two-and-a-half-year-old Uzbek eatery, but mostly about its fantastic write-ups in other outlets or their role in the business…

by Lisa Willner THE BITE: While I haven’t traveled to Turkey just yet, the food at Rocca Café-Lounge whets my appetite for a visit. I first ventured to Rocca (2712 Emmons Avenue) this past summer, shortly after it opened. The seaside gem boasts huge windows both inside and out for dining on the water. It was an outdoor summer…

THE BITE: It’s been a while since we’ve written about Pho Hoai Restaurant at 1906 Avenue U. We last explored the grilled beef and crispy fried spring rolls. I’ve probably put more than 100 visits under my (growing) belt since then, and today we return once more for a look at lighter fare: the Banh Mi (a.k.a. Vietnamese sandwich)…

THE BITE: Vegetarians must have a tough time of it in Sheepshead Bay. Unlike neighborhoods to the north, we lack earthy digs slinging grass-fed kale chips and praise-be-to-seitan mock meats. For the most part, it’s pizza, uninspired Buddhist’s Delight, and a couple of Middle Eastern or Eastern European salads that pack so much onion that you’ll…

THE BITE: After wrapping up my visit to the Brighton Jubilee this weekend, I walked up Coney Island Avenue and passed one the neighborhood’s staple Mexican joints, Tacos El Rey (3168 Coney Island Avenue). It had been a long time since my last visit, and I spotted a sign in the window declaring that the kitchen…

Tipsters let us know that Pizza D’Amore is preparing to open up shop at 3003 Avenue U, the former storefront of Pizzeria Del Corso and Sammie’s Pizza.

Food & Drink Cafe Kashkar: lagman

THE BITE: Based on the menu alone, it’s hard to know whether you’re diving into a Uyghur dish or an Uzbeki one at Cafe Kashkar – or really what you’re getting into at all. But you won’t go wrong picking and choosing among the inexpensive dishes and sharing with a table of adventurous eaters. This is one of the few…
