Profile

The heavily anticipated Berg’n landed in rapidly gentrifying Crown Heights with a bang in the summer of 2014—or was it a bust? It’s hard to tell. The space, cavernous yet fun, is certainly impressive: high ceilings, a beautiful wood bar, and seating that could accommodate half of the borough make it a popular destination for large groups and birthday bashes. The food, though, is what’s harder to parse: The four venues, Asia Dog, Mighty Quinn’s, Pizza Moto Slice Shop, and Ramen Burger, are all beloved-yet-impenetrable brands (try getting a ramen burger anywhere else without waiting in line for an hour!), so the ease of getting them—and together, no less—is highly appealing. It’s unfortunate, because not all the options hold up; the Asia Dog varieties are plentiful, but none of them pack a real punch. The novelty of the ramen burger falls apart as soon as the burger itself does, and it inevitably will once you’re more than one bite in. Pizza Moto looks promising, but a recent marinara slice was no different than any frozen counterpart. Your best bet is Mighty Quinn’s, with its toothsome, juicy brisket, and its salty, delicious fries; without the long lines or commute into Manhattan, it, unsurprisingly, tastes even better. Pair it with one of the excellent draft beers available, and you’re in business.
