Pearl’s is on a quiet side street in Williamsburg, but it’s a Caribbean party in here and it’s one of the places we plan on hanging out regularly this summer. A restaurant from the team behind Sweet Chick, this place serves authentic stuff like accra (salt cod fritters) and shark bakes (sandwiches made from traditional fry bread, and yes, shark meat), but you can also get jerk ribs and braised oxtail and plenty of island-y cocktails. On a warm night, head here with a few people and eat on their excellent back patio. Or come for an outdoor bottomless brunch ($15 for an hour of all you can drink).

Ammazzacaffè in Williamsburg has above-average Italian food and a nice back patio, and somehow, most people don’t seem to know about it.
The Commodore is bad. Bad because merely looking at the food here will jack up your cholesterol thirty points, and worse because everything is so good that you’ll crave it all the time.
