Where To Eat Near the Barclays Center, Atlantic Center Mall, BAM

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 new Brooklyn Nets stadium.

All of these attractions are located on Flatbush Avenue, which sports a few restaurants.

And although one can find food at the stadium and fast food at Atlantic Center mall too, sometimes its nice to have a meal in a typical Brooklyn neighborhood restaurant.
