2) Ditmas Park: Ditmas Park Blog has a look at the offerings of Catskill Bagel Company, the triumphant return of bagels being baked on Cortelyou Road. They're open pretty early too - 7 am on the weekends and 6 am on weekdays - so they've got commuters covered. Status: Certified open; 1416 Cortelyou Road, Ditmas Park.

3) Carroll Gardens: Grub Street files a report on the recently opened Palo Cortado, a wine and tapas joint from Alessandro Peluso (Bocca and Cacio e Pepe) and Alessandro Piliego (the House). There's sherry, wine, and beer on the drinks menu but, sadly, no hard liquor. But, hey, there's a tapas menu that includes charcuterie, meatballs, and sandwiches. Status: Certified open; 520 Court St., Carroll Gardens, 718-407-0047.
