Brooklyn's Fiore Worth the Trip for Manhattan's Gael Greene

New York City is home to a lot of restaurants - 24,000 by the Dept. of Health's count, more than any rational human being can ever hope to visit. Among that number are hidden gems the majority of New Yorkers just aren't unearthing. To help guide us to these potential discoveries, we've enlisted some of our city's many food luminaries to share with us their under the radar recommendations.


Our next suggestion comes from long-time restaurant reviewer and author Gael Greene. She admits that she doesn't have many under the radar recommendations since she usually writes or tweets them but she does manage to share one that has yet to catch fire with her readers.

"Perhaps the one place we love and go whenever we can hitch a ride that my readers have not found yet is Fiore in Brooklyn. Great grilled pizzas by Roberto Aita. Fabulous fritto misto of calamari and zucchini. Great whole fish...and so cheap. We always finish with lemon sorbetto. What brings us back again and again is the warm welcome, no need to dress up, it's easy and casual with great food at bargain prices— and they DO take reservations— I don't go to Brooklyn without a reservation."
