Taqueria Diana’s newest location on Metropolitan Avenue in Williamsburg serves giant burritos and loaded nachos like the original East Village location, but this spot is much larger and doesn't get quite as crowded. On a Friday night, you can probably find a table on the outdoor patio upstairs. We wouldn’t hang out here and drink expensive mezcal (they have a lot of those), but it’s open till 1am every day, so it’s a good option for some $3 Tecates and a big tray of nachos covered in shredded chicken and cheese on your way home from the bar.

La Esquina Brasserie
