Beco was one of the neighborhood hangs that made Williamsburg cool around 2010. While the neighborhood has changed, Beco is still a cool spot to sit outside for a few hours while eating Brazilian dishes like moqueca (seafood stew) and feijoada (beans and pork with rice) and drinking pitchers of caipirinhas. It’s open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner everyday, but it’s most popular for boozy brunch on weekends, when there’s live music and bongo drums.
