Choosing to embrace all that encompasses its community—new and old—Cornerstone serves up live music, comfort food, huge screens for game viewing, and a clientele so diverse and fluid that it's difficult to ascertain where the block party ends and the restaurant begins. Located fittingly on the corner of a main Fort Greene intersection, the two-floor spot starts with a full bar and dining room downstairs (including a wrap-around patio), where patrons aged eight (weeks) to 80 years feast on a menu of hearty entrees such as the Buttermilk Fried Chicken Basket ($14). The upstairs lounge, meanwhile, is a constant party, with secluded spots for late-night nuzzling, an airy patio, and an additional full bar mixing up gems like the Black Deck Mojito ($10, a Long Island iced tea-mojito fusion). Whether you’re new to the hood or a long-time Fort Greener—it's a wonder how anyone gets a night's sleep around here.
