his shop is the first of several locations for the world-famous chocolatier. It opened in 2000 and is a must-see, or rather must-eat, destination. Torres pioneered mixing unusual flavors into filled chocolates such as Pastis licorice liquor with milk chocolate ganache, chocolate infused with the tingle of fresh mint tea, and Earl Grey tea-infused in a dark creamy chocolate square. They are not only delicious but quite beautiful. In winter, it is practically required in DUMBO to go and get a Chili Hot Chocolate ideal for cold days in DUMBO.

Juliana's heralds the return of Patsy Grimaldi, NYC’s most celebrated pizza proprietor, to 19 Old Fulton Street, the original location under the Brooklyn Bridge where he and his late wife, Carol, founded legendary Grimaldi’s Pizzeria. Unbeknownst to many, Pat and Carol sold Grimaldi’s and retired almost two decades ago. In 2012, they “unretired” to partner with close friend, Matthew Grogan, to establish Juliana’s, proudly preparing and serving pies the way Patsy has for generations: deliciously thin crusts hosting only the finest housemade, locally and internationally-sourced toppings, expertly turned inside the original hand-built coal-fired oven—the first commissioned in New York in over fifty years.

This restaurant, on a cobblestone street close to the Brooklyn Navy Yard, is a good choice for a sit-down dinner (or a break-up-the-day brunch). The space is charming and weathered, with cozy dining spaces in its wood-filled interior. If the weather is nice, take a seat in the garden. Popular entrees include cast-iron chicken and spinach and ricotta manicotti; pancakes are the way to go earlier in the day. For dessert, try the rich Guinness chocolate cake. You can grab a light bite and coffee from its casual offshoot, VHH Foods in Empire Stores.

You cannot miss this 500,000-square-foot brick warehouse situated close to the waterfront. This is the Empire Stores former warehouse, built between 1868 and 1885. In those days, Brooklyn was America’s coffee capital. In the late 19th and early 20th centuries, the vast majority of the country’s coffee supply arrived through New York Harbor. As industry slowed down along the Brooklyn waterfront in the 1940s and ‘50s, many of the area’s warehouses were torn down for the construction of the Brooklyn-Queens Expressway and the Brooklyn Heights Promenade.
