Mission Dolores allows you to sample a range of tasty beers. Located on Fourth Avenue in Brooklyn, Mission Dolores is a really cool, darkly lit space where the big wooden bar at the back verges upon being an altar. To get there, you have to go through a room, a courtyard and then the main room. The bartenders may not be priests or monks, but they tend to be quick with a verse and ready to serve. Mission Dolores is definitely a great spot to check out if you happen to be in Brooklyn and love beer.
Welcome to Morocco! Entering Babouche is like stepping into a North African den of gastronomic pleasure. The cozy two-story space is crammed with velvet pillows and other fine fixtures and the food is no less striking.

At dinner, the elegance continues: Choose from big bowls of harira, sweet 'n' savory pastilla plates, or a decadent selection of souped-up couscous presentations. If the decision proves too tough, opt for the family-style dinner, an exhaustive multi-course meal highlighting all the best of Moroccan cuisine.
