Newly opened Bourbon Springs is on a quiet block off the Graham Ave stop in Williamsburg. Their focus is Cajun cuisine and craft cocktails and best of all, they have a seafood boil on Sundays:
If you haven’t been to vibrant Graham Avenue on the border of Williamsburg and Greenpoint yet, I present to you the perfect reason to explore this part of town. Named after a communal trout fishing lodge that her grandfather founded in the Blue Ridge Mountains, Emily Casey’s Bourbon Springs somehow captures the familiarity of a little restaurant in the south, but with the all the culinary chops necessary to survive New York’s competitive restaurant scene. The Cajun-inspired menu is sure to satisfy and the bar happens to make some of the best craft cocktails in the city. The interior is pleasant and charming; small enough to feel welcoming yet with table spacing optimized for conversation. Bourbon Springs also enjoys a quaint backyard complete with picnic tables surrounded by planters overflowing with herbs, tomatoes, and blueberries. On Sunday evenings, they offer seasonal all-you-can-eat seafood boils, currently featuring crab and shrimp.
Time Out has more:
Virginia-born chef Emily Casey (Tabla, the New French) oversees a menu of Southern and Cajun fare at this laidback Williamsburg eatery named after a family fishing cabin she frequented as a child. Start with small plates ranging from pork-sausage boudin balls to fried oysters, before digging into heaty comfort classics such as a bourbon burger (tobacco onions, garlic chips), shrimp-catfish gumbo and black eye pea fritters.
