If you’re hungry and near the Williamsburg bridge, walk over to Rabbithole. It’s a neighborhood spot - nothing fancy, just the type of place where you can stop in, get seated, and eat a solid meal. Have a burger, a salad, or a nice piece of fish. They also have a great outdoor patio that isn’t so small that you’ll have to wait two hours to get a seat on it. So stop by for a low-key dinner or some outdoor brunch when you want to remind yourself that being outdoors in NYC can actually be pleasant.
