Savory Standby

One of my favorite restaurants in NYC is Bay Ridge's very own Areo. The prices are more Manhattan-like, but the food and service are definitely worth it. I used to try something different every time I went (always worth it) until the day I decided, on a lark, to try the eggplant rollatini. I can't even tell you why I picked it--it just jumped off the menu to me, and I've ordered it the last 3 times I went (that's a lot for someone who likes variety as much as I do!) This dish never fails to impress--I love their red sauce (not sweet at all), the ricotta filling is gooey and flavorful, and I can never manage to finish the whole thing.

Consider Areo very highly recommended by this chick. :) It can get very noisy and boisterous at night, but it's worth it for classic Brooklyn people-watching. Lunch is more laid-back, but I do consider this place juuuust a little pricey for lunch. Either way, show up hungry, and eat well! Mangiamo!
