Goodbye awesome, low-key, tourist-free dining establishment. Hello J. Crew showroom, or whatever the hell replaces you. It’s not clear if they were kicked out by a rent-hiking, greedy landlord, but you just know they were.
Our favorite spot to take in a summer sunset, Brooklyn Barge Bar, is opening tomorrow. The floating barge has a full bar with picnic table seating on the land as well. They haven’t posted a 2017 menu yet, but we assume it will include many of the staples they served last year like burgers, peel-and-eat […]
South Williamsburg’s Cow and Clover never really caught on and closed shop in late March. The good news is they’ve decided to partner with the popular pizza joint Fornino. Plans are in motion to open a new branch of the mini-chain in the space at 291 Kent Ave this month with a larger menu: Those […]
We sat down with co-owner Sean Berthiaume to talk about Vinnie’s legacy, what sets them apart from the dozens of other pizza shops all over Williamsburg, and (of course) their pizza creations that made them go viral—more than once!

In New York City, we’re lucky enough to have a lot of places that fit the bill: S’mac, Pomme Frites, Meatball […]
Tucked away down an alley, hidden from view in East Williamsburg is a gorgeous, pink Australian cafe that’s destined to become the neighborhood’s next buzz restaurant. As lovely as a Thiebaud painting, the curiously named Carthage Must Be Destroyed, is situated in an old industrial warehouse which has been transformed into an enchanting homage to […]
In Bushwick, there’s a new bar from the people behind Old Stanley’s. Pretty much everything they touch is gold in our book, so you can count on this being a welcome addition to the neighborhood. The space looks great, though having two Whitney Houston records on the jukebox, hardly constitutes a theme, despite what Gothamist suggests: […]
Williamsburg staple Vinnie’s Pizzeria shared a great order note from a customer who was having a weed related emergency. As you can see in the below Instagram the stoned customer added
