Brooklyn's concentrated hub near the Atlantic Terminal and Atlantic Avenue subway station includes attractions that draw thousands: the Atlantic Center Mall, the Brooklyn Academy of Music, and of course, the vast Barclays Center, the Brooklyn Nets stadium and entertainment venue. All of these attractions are located on Flatbush Avenue, which sports a few restaurants. And although you can find food at the stadium and fast food at Atlantic Center Mall, sometimes it's nice to settle in for a nice meal or grab a drink at a typical Brooklyn neighborhood spot.
