    Freddy's wasn't always in this neighborhood, but it's an old favorite no matter where in Brooklyn. Pro tip: There's a backyard for private smoking. Check out their back room for musical performances.

    You're not having a stroke: those are artificially piped-in cricket sounds in the backyard.
