First, the bad news. Free Williamsburg favorite Potlikker has shuttered. Maybe it was the prices — they could be a tad spendy– but we loved the food and vibe. We hope Liza Queen (who previously ran Queen’s Hideaway in Greenpoint) finds a new home. We miss her food already. The generally well-received Potlikker on Williamsburg’s […]
It’s not much of a shock — it’s been listed on Trulia for months — but Graham Avenue’s popular fish shack Sel De Mer closed last week. It will be missed. Just around the corner another “restaurant,” White Castle closed too. We’d be happy to see it go if it weren’t being replaced by more […]

5) Andy Stott, Demdike Stare, Millie & Andrea, Miles, and more at Output While you’re never going to hear me expound on the cultural importance of Output (nor ever find me there), I must say, this one caught my attention. Every now and then Output books itself a name in the electronic music world, but […]
5) Deafheaven, No Joy, Indian Handcrafts at Music Hall of Williamsburg While you’ll (spoiler alert) find another Deafheaven show ranked higher below, this is the 2013 critical lightening rod’s only headlining show of the weekend and should be treated as such. I have some qualms about the booking–why have Canadian shoegazers No Joy open when […]
Not sure we can trust them because, well, its Vogue. Plus, they included a neighborhood in Florida. Here’s what they say about Bushwick: As far as buzz goes, few neighborhoods garner as much attention—globally—as Bushwick. Believe the hype: this area, located in north Brooklyn, claims cutting-edge galleries (like an outpost of Luhring Augustine, which reps […]
Humboldt & Jackson 434 Humboldt Street Brooklyn, NY 11222 (Williamsburg) (718)349-3355 humboldtandjackson.com Eater has the scoop: This new bar from Brooklyn Star restaurateur Bill Reed offers an all-American list of wines and beers, plus bar snacks like beer cheese and chicken liver mousse.
Given all the displacement happening in New York’s most rapidly gentrifying neighborhood, you’d think developers and the PR companies would show a little more tact: Here in bohemian Bushwick, Brooklyn, you’ll find a group of like-minded settlers, mixing the customs of their original homeland with those of one of NYC’s most historic neighborhoods to create […]
