If you just want a quick, simple sandwich in Williamsburg, go to Depanneur. It’s a little market on Wythe, and we like to think of it as a bodega that went to grad school and now thinks it’s better than everyone else (because it kind of is). You can get things like Persian yogurt and saltwater taffy here, and you can also get a great pastrami or egg salad sandwich. And if you need a place to eat, there are usually some tables on the sidewalk out front.

Three blocks from the Barclays Center, Chuko is not only an ideal pre-game move, but our favorite ramen joint in Brooklyn.
Lobster Joint is closest thing to a clam shack that you can find in Greenpoint, and it's absolutely perfect for summer day drinking.
Bonnie's Grill is a great neighborhood spot with a full menu of divey bar food classics. However, we still need better options for wings in the city, and Bonnie's doesn't quite make the cut.

Racines is a really good place to drink wine, but this Tribeca restaurant is a really bad spot to eat food.
Besides a couple of quality appetizers, the menu at Cafe Luxembourg is beat street. It’s standard, run-of-the-mill French Bistro fare that’s overpriced and under portioned.
Manhatta is a prix-fixe restaurant on the 60th floor of a building in FiDi, and an ideal special occasion spot.

Sunday in Brooklyn
A Williamsburg restaurant that’s a good place for brunch, and an even better place to hang out.
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.
