Good places to live in Brooklyn based on food/bevs?

Ditmas Park is affordable, and is definitely up-and-coming in terms of good and accessible food. And, it's got one of the few year-round greenmarkets. The CSA is pretty much awesome, as ewll. So, if you cook and want access to fresh local produce year-round, give it a shot. There's a good mix of ethnic food (Tibetan, Mexican, Middle Eastern), and some nicer places with a neighborhood feel, like The Farm on Adderley, which is definitely foodie-oriented.

It's a quick shot into Manhattan on the Q Train (much faster than the F from Park Slope), rents are more affordable, too. For drinking, there's Sycamore (a combination bar/flower shop -- beer and a bouquet for $10 is their happy hour special) or 773 Lounge (a bit more divey), which are both neighborhoody.

New Years Eve Dinner

We've got a reservation at The Farm on Adderley in Ditmas Park, Brooklyn for the 9:30 seating. They're doing a prix fixe for $70. I think they said four courses. We're regulars there, so I don't know whether they cut us some slack, but we just made the reservation yesterday to sit at the bar, so it might still be possible to get in. The appeal for us (aside from the food, of course) was that it was close enough to home that we can walk there and back.
