    Try the foie gras donut. A mix of savory and sweet always does the trick. Also, if you're skeptical about foie gras, it's hidden between a a crispy Dough donut, jelly, and powdered sugar!

    Get the Hello Brooklyn or Cobble Hill cocktail - I got the flounder and loved it! It was perfectly crispy on the outside and tender on the inside. Trade the fries for grits or the red potatoes

    Try the tasty Nippon nachos, wasabi-spiked shumai, and the famed foie gras doughnut, which stuffs whipped goose liver mousse and Polaner apricot preserves inside a fluffy golden doughnut. Read more

    Ain't no party like a pancake party, and Do or Dine has pancakes to die for. Here you'll stare down the "Nutella Gingrich," which is aptly described as "a giant flapjack, absolutely bananas." Read more

    +1 on the foie gras doughnut! Yum. Also -- the GOLDFISH ice cream blew my mind. Talk to the bartender ... he's got yummy brandied cherries and great drink recommendations to keep you happy.

    Unbelievably delicious meal. Menu is filled with ironic twists on staples from Nippon Nachos to A Fish and Some Chips and shepherical shooters like the Pickle Back. Go. Do it.

    Interesting and super tasty menu. Fantastic cocktails. Get an old fashioned whisky sour, or the tried and true George and Ginger. Outdoor seating is also a plus.

    Fish & Sone chips, Nippon Nachos and the foie donut (cuz why not?). If you're parched the Red Dawn is the way to go!

    Got what everyone said to get and it was all delicious. Foie gras doughnut and e666s were super standouts. Valium and Adderal cocktail provided the perfect buzz.

    Start with spherical shots and a round of Mario kart, then switch to a bonita applebum as you share Brussels sprouts, Nippon nachos, chicken & waffles and a hanger steak.

    One of ther best restaurants in Brooklyn! From the former Modern's sou-chefs (MoMa's restaurant), this place offers great food and a great environment. A plus: the disco ball

    Definitely the foie gras doughnut and the fatty lamb breasts. We got the fish and chips due to hype. The novelty was better than the taste.

    Who would have thought dining could be this great in this part of the world... Do or Dine can definitely hold it's own next to some of the world's greatest! Everything we tried was delicious. Yum!

    Don't miss the Nippon nachos and one of their original cocktails. The service is awesome. Love that they have snickers ice cream bars for dessert.

    Pretty comedic menu. Get the chicken liver and woffals if you aren't afraid of delicious heart disease. Nippon nachos for extra dollop of fried goodness.

    Try the Foie Gras Doughnut, the Lamb Breast and the Fawn-Tons. They are fucking tasty!! Amazing place, you have to go here and try everything ;)

    There's a little awesome twist to everything here. The steak tartare is great, but save room for a foie gras doughnut for dessert.

    The most delicious lamb ribs I've had anywhere in the world (runner-up: this little random hole-in-the-wall in Cairo).

    Foie gras donut, Dr. Pepper-glazed frog legs, and fish + chips (whole fried porgy with a tobiko mohawk) are worth the trek!

    Very inventive gastropub food. If you make it out here, definitely try the foie gras donut and the whiskey and pickle juice shot.

    order all the small plates and one or two of the mains. Take friends with you and split the previously mentioned... and bring your own gigantic bottle of booze.

    Chef Justin Warner's Cucumber Soup has the perfect balance of sweet, cool, and creaminess that you need to beat the summer heat.

    The Nippon nachos are the most perfect Asian/Mexican fusion thing I've had. Nachos and Gyoza in the same bite!

    On point music and subtle disco ball. Also frogs legs and venison. Lamb too. I'm so into all of this.

    Extremely interesting menu. Not sure if it tasted all as good as it sounds. Try to foie grass donut, nacho dumplings, dr. Pepper glazed frog legs

    No extensive dessert menu so if foie gras donuts aren't your thing, grab a post dinner drink and a slice of chocolate cake next door at Dynaco

    Highly recommend the "Chicken & Woffals". The offal paste and perfectly crispy waffles take this dish to a new level.

    Don't go late because they run out of all of their things. Their things are really good. It's probably why they run out. Cash only. You'll need lots of cash.
