Llama Inn is one of our favorite restaurants in Williamsburg, and Llamita is a counter-service spot in the West Village run by the same people. They serve smoothies and a few breakfast items in the morning, as well as rotisserie chicken and Peruvian dishes (like tamal with red onion and quinoa with roasted red pepper) throughout the day. But our favorite things here are the sandwiches. Get the one with chicken thigh, pineapple, and bacon the next time you’re looking for a quick lunch or early dinner in the West Village.
