April 11-20 is Brooklyn's restaurant week -- Dine in Brooklyn. Close to 200 Brooklyn restaurants will offer three-course meals for a mere $19.55, in honor of the 1955 World Champion Brooklyn Dodgers. The website lists participating restaurants, broken down by neighborhood (how convenient!). Winner of the Time Out New York Eat Out Award for Best New Brooklyn Restaurant, Stone Park Cafe in Park Slope, is on the list and many restaurants are offering lunch specials as well. So, if you're one of those people who treat Brooklyn like a second-class city, get off your borough-phobic ass and go dine in Brooklyn. You won't regret it.

Thanks to reader dirtgirl for tipping us off to this one.
