The borough of Brooklyn is the new rival to Manhattan on NYC's dining scene. Celebrated chefs like Elizabeth Falkner are moving to Brooklyn to make their NYC debuts; her pizzeria Krescendo has grabbed the entire pizza-crazy city's attention with creations like Finoccio Flower Power Pizza. Court Street Grocers takes on another NYC institution - the deli sandwich - and raises it to new heights. La Vara is owned by a husband-and-wife team who already have two successful Manhattan eateries, but they turned to Brooklyn to open their most imaginative take yet on Spanish food. And Brooklyn's diversity even makes room for Southern hospitality at Pies-n-Thighs, a down-home fried-chicken joint in the shadows of the Williamsburg Bridge.
