Best Restaurant in Prospect Heights


Every neighborhood in Brooklyn has that one grown-up gem where the hospitality overcomes any guilt couples have about not being able to cook and entertain in the intimacy of their own apartments. In Prospect Heights, that neighborhood dining room is James, a seasonal American bistro that puts out half-pound Vermont cheddar burgers, bleeding into sesame-seed buns and sided with thick-cut fries, and a sticky-sweet pan-roasted chicken breast you wish your grand-mère made you. Besides, no midnight Entenmann’s run can live up to the signature dessert of grilled lemon pound cake and blackberry ice cream. Sample those flavors in another form at brunch, when a sweet-tart blackberry cream serves as an oozing sealant between wedges of sugared-brioche french toast.
