8. Berg’n in Crown Heights, Brooklyn
A product of Smorgasbord, Berg’n, a beer garden and food court, opened in 2011 in Crown Heights. The interior of the Berg’n looks like a page out of J. K. Rowling’s Harry Potter series, and features long tables stacked in rows like The Great Hall. The outside eating area also has a plethora of small tables and chairs. The Berg’n faced a bit of social media backlash when the owners failed to meet their original opening date, but the establishment has done very well and remains a popular eating destination.
Set inside an industrial space, the Berg’n houses Mighty Quinn’s, Landhaus, Lumpia Shack, and Dub pies in addition to a wall of tap beers. The Beg’n is a unique food court concept that can be enjoyed all year long.
