The upper-middle-class neighborhoods of Fort Greene and Clinton Hill have a dining scene to match, with some highly regarded restaurants to be found along DeKalb Ave ranging eastward from Fort Greene Park, as well as a cluster of fun places along Fulton St, near the Brooklyn Academy of Music. You'll find more mid-market and budget options on Myrtle Ave, the main strip to the north.

As a hub of Brooklyn's African American culture, Bed-Stuy has many restaurants serving Haitian, Trinidadian and US Southern cuisines (to name a few) – the best of the latter is neighborhood mainstay Peaches.
