The original Egg Shop is in Nolita, but this location is in Williamsburg - and it’s an infinitely better place to eat your eggs. (We like the Nolita one, but it gets a little cramped.) So if you’re craving a sandwich or a bowl of vegetables with an egg on it, and you have time to spare, we recommend you cross the East River. This place is bright with high ceilings, and there’s a little bar area up front. They also do burritos at this location, and these make for a good, quick breakfast or lunch.

Off the main stretch in Williamsburg is Aurora, a place charming enough for a First/Early in the Game Date, calm enough for Dinner with the Parents, and with an insane, well-greened Outdoor/Patio Situation.
Have & Meyer
Have & Meyer is a tiny Italian wine bar in Williamsburg where you can get over 90 natural wines by the glass.
Pies ‘n’ Thighs
The new Pies ‘n’ Thighs has opened its doors, and Williamsburg’s most influential hipsters are rejoicing. This new, larger location is still turning out amazing fried chicken and comfort food classics.
More American spotsSee more
Acme has dropped its impressive Nordic menu in favor of a pretty standard Italian/American one. It's now much more about the scene than the food.
Frankel’s is a Jewish deli in the same vein as Russ & Daughters, but on its own level entirely.
Red Hook Tavern
Red Hook Tavern is from the people behind Hometown Bar-B-Que, and it’s a great spot to sit at the bar, drink wine, and eat an extremely good burger.
