12355134111232008_10_hasmaps%20%283%29%20%281%29%20%281%29.jpgDoes Brooklyn have its own unique culinary identity apart from Manhattan? Are all the young, ambitious chefs and restaurateurs opening in Brooklyn these days? And are any Brooklyn restaurants worth the train/cab/boat/helicopter ride from the Upper East Side? These are all questions that can be debated, endlessly. But one thing's for certain: There are a lot of terrific new restaurants in Brooklyn right now. Here they are, in map form.

After a 14-year run on Smith Street, chef Saul Bolton recently packed up his acclaimed New American restaurant Saul and moved it to spacious new digs inside the Brooklyn Museum. The dinner menu includes celery root soup, a foie gras terrine, chicken with black trumpet mushrooms, striped bass with mussels, and venison with walnut bread pudding. The cocktails from head bartender Dan Carlson are getting some great buzz right now. Consider the Red Leaf, made with Banks 5 Rum, Cocchi Americano, and Campari.

A few months ago, restaurateur Sara Conklin and chef Sara Kramer opened this spacious Mediterranean restaurant, which is located on the ground floor of a century-old warehouse near Newtown Creek. It's an unusual, but very charming location. The menu includes a lot of vegetable dishes, as well as things like lamb tartare, flatiron steak with trout roe, and a whole rabbit for two. Make sure to order the fresh breads and the lamb and bulghur croquettes. Kramer took home the New York Chef of the Year award at the Eater Awards last month.
