We were coming by foot from Manhattan and we were looking for a restaurant to eat and warm up a little bit. It was the first restaurantwe saw after the Brooklyn bridge and we found a little room inside. It was very crowded, but the...More

Bland is the key word when describing the food here. I try to avoid this place unless I'm dying of hunger. Tourists go here since they don't know any better and it's right at the entrance of the Brooklyn Bridge.

We stopped by at Celeste to 'fuel up' before our trek back across the Brooklyn Bridge to lower Manhattan. It's right at the start of the bridge on the Brooklyn side and so is ideally situated for anyone wanting walk the entire length! The menu...More
