Cobble Hill and Carroll Gardens retain a neighborhoody charm that can often feel drained from other areas of Brooklyn, making it a place people head to, whether they’re off to the movies, picking up falafel at Sahadi’s or sipping a Cosmopolitan at Long Island Bar. There’s a lot to take in and a lot of varied cuisines to choose from, whether one’s in the mood for Thai or soul food or Venezuelan. Cinch, the Cobble Hill and Carrol Gardens Neighborhood app, is leading a Taste of Summer Culinary Week between July 11 and July 21. Here, a list of some of the best options in an area stuffed with them.
