If you’ve ever been to the casual Mediterranean spot 12 Chairs in Soho, you should know that their Williamsburg location is nothing like it. While the original is a bit dark and lacking in any real vibe, the Brooklyn space is light and bright and covered in plants. It’s a great spot for brunches, affordable dinners, or any meals where eating kind of healthy is the priority.
