Brooklyn Beer Bar hopping - food recommendation?

as a craft beer lover living in queens. We often say williamsburg is where our local bars are.
if you go during the day look into the east river ferry.

1st stop - hunters point/Long island City (queens
Alewife - $25 brunch includes all you can drink select cocktails w/ brunch. Also w/in walking distance for brunch or great food - Woodbines & Open Door.
2 breweries walking distance from that ferry stop - Big Alice Brewery & Rockaway Brewing Company

2nd stop on Ferry - India Street/Greenpoint
Torst, Spritzenhaus, The Diamond, Brouwerij Lane,Dirk the Norseman

3rd stop on ferry N 6th St/ N Williamsburg
mugs ale house, brooklyn brewery, spuyten duyvil, barcade (take cab back to ferry)

4th stop - stay on ferry -take a little break :) shafer landing swilliamsburg

5th stop - dumbo - walk around take in the sites in your drunken stupor...

you can hop on and off the ferry - or take it back to the city

Rockaway, Summer 2012, what's happening?

my family rented bungalows in rockaway around 91st street in the mid/late 70's.
i have gone numerious times as an adult to belle harbor/ 116 - but never down there.
Last summer i decided to head down to find 1 of our bungalows was still standing and the other was turned into a community garden. Lots of beach erosion over there - and the beach is now a surfers only beach....
additionally one of the families that we lived next to (theirs was a year round home) still lives there!
Fond memories - and so glad to see that its come back again!!

Sunday Lunch/Brunch - italian?

Thank you Cheery - it looks beautiful but the egg dishes for brunch look a little too adventurious for my mother and her sisters (ranging betw 70 & 76)

Sunday Lunch/Brunch - italian?

Mom and her sisters love to go to Trattoria Alba for lunch - Unfortunately they are no longer open for lunch on a Sunday

Looking for a place that doesnt rush you out the door on Sunday. Not an Irish/pub feel or a diner. Or a Korean/Mexican place. Not some place that simlar to a Sarabeths or a Penelopes that you might have to wait long for a table of 4
Preferrably under $25
Between 30 & 37th streets - 6th avenue and 2nd avenue

Laguna Grille - Westbury - gone

their website advised they closed this location - and will reopen somewhere else..
the restaurant was really quaint inside... and their salads were wonderful

Hopefully they will open their new location nearby.....
