    I'm moving to Brooklyn in 2 months (park slope specifically) and I can arguably say I have no idea about the area. I was there only for 6 hours for a job interview, accepted the job and now in 2 months I'll be a brooklynite. Any good advice, restaurant recommendations, bars to hit up, fun venues, etc? Thanks.

    Welcome to NYC. Where are you moving from?

    Brooklyn has some really nice restaurants Brooklyn heights which is close to park slope has some great choices. After dinner you can take a walk with your sweetie to the promenade which overlooks the financial district of manhattan. Very romantic on a summer night. Alternatively you can go to Hunter's point for a view of midtown. Both are spectacular.

    Gay scene wise, most of the stuff you want to see is in hell's kitchen and Chelsea. Not so much choices in the outer boroughs (Brooklyn queens bronx staten island). Check out nextmagazine.com it gives you the heads up in manhattan that week. Therapy's a nice bar. SBNY and G used to be very good I haven't been in there since I met my bf though. Just beware of the bitches with the 'tude.

    I'm in Florida, but I have been to Brooklyn and lucky you! Park Slope is one of the nicest areas in the borough.

    Check things out in the DUMBO (Down Under the Manhattan Bridge Overpass) area and you have to go down Flatbush to have cheesecake at Junior's. The best. Everyone else can argue it, but Junior's rules!

    Find out if Two Tom's is in Brooklyn.

    Eat there whether it is or not.

    Order the pork chop.

    I grew up in Park Slope. There's every kind of food there and it's really a hopping crowd. I like Bogota on 5th Avenue (I think at St. John's Place). It's a great Latin fusion place. Kiku is a good Japanese place a few blocks away, and Yamato is another Japanese place on 7th Avenue and 2nd Street. 'Snice is a good bakery/cafe at 5th Avenue and 3rd Street. Connecticut Muffin is a popular Starbucks-type place. There's good pizza at Pizza Plus on 7th Avenue. They're the nicest people. Also, you're near Prospect Park, and the Pavilion Theater is on Prospect Park West at the circle.
