Here’s which Brooklyn restaurants and bakeries are nominated:

Ciao, Gloria

Ciao, Gloria blends American and Italian roots and is from the founders of Red Hook’s Baked bakery. Their pastry case includes: cookies, biscotti, lemon bars, crumb cake, carrot cake, a crostata (Italian baked tart), and a lemon ciambellone (Italian ring cake), and a almond plum torte that is “knock-your-socks-off great.”

Win Son Bakery

East Williamsburg: 159 Graham Ave, Brooklyn, NY 11206

Nomination: Bakery of the Year

An adored Taiwanese-American joint, where you can try classics like stinky tofu (if you’re adventurous like that) and have contemporary twists like their sloppy bao. Check out their new bakery across the street, Win Son Bakery, for luscious pork knuckle breakfast sandwiches and chewy mochi donuts. The bakery’s sister restaurant Win Son, was included in Michelin’s Bib Guide.


Park Slope: 239 5th Ave, Brooklyn, NY 11215

Nomination: Restaurant of the Year

Also included in Michelin’s Bib Guide, this homey Park Slope restaurant where chef Jenny Kwak serves Korean home cooking inspired by traditional dishes, in a joint named after female divers in the province of Jeju.


Williamsburg: 357 Grand Street, Brooklyn, NY 11211

Nomination: Design of the Year

Gertie’s is an airy, sun-soaked all-day cafe inspired by settling down at Grandma’s whether for an early lunch or late drink, or vice versa. The food is cozy and comforting: classic bialy’s and bacon, egg, and cheese galore, with fun American home cooking twists on the evening menu, like chicken dinner and meat and potatoes. The pastel color scheme is playful, adding a charm to the space.
