Brooklyn, New York City 

Eats & Restaurants

Borough Park 

Borough Park is a working class neighborhood in Brooklyn and home to one of the largest Hasidic (Jewish) communities in New York City. A pleasant neighborhood but for most visitors to the city, Borough Park is not on the list of destinations. With a large proportion of observant Jews living in the neighborhood, Borough Park is Brooklyn's dining destination for eating kosher. Visitors should not miss the opportunity to sample many of the kosher cuisines in the neighborhood. Off course, there are also non-kosher restaurants in Borough Park.
