Hotel Delmano is where you go in Williamsburg when you need a good drink in a setting that’s perfect for a quiet conversation. It’s dark, cozy, and and an ideal date spot. The best part is, it isn’t pretentious. Just know that you have to be seated (no standing), and the space isn’t huge. Still, you can usually find a seat.

It can be annoying to deal with an unpredictable situation, but for pizza this good, we’re willing to deal with it. Brooklyn's Lucali is incredible.
Antica Pesa is both crazy and endearing, and a far cry from some of the other restaurants around here that hand you some food and a paper napkin and then wait for you to leave.
Fletcher's Brooklyn BBQ
Fletcher's serves up some great pulled pork, and is a solid local BBQ stop if you're around Gowanus. We just wouldn't travel for it.

Jacobs Pickles is great if you need a spot for drinks or an Upper West Side dinner meetup with someone you know will embrace the heavy bar food. But it’s not a restaurant with traveling for.
