Some ramen places are big, noisy, and tough to get into. At Andante, this is not the case. It’s just a little space in Williamsburg with a few tables, a classical soundtrack, and a few different regional styles of ramen. They have shio and shoyu, as well as some other types from Hokkaido and Kumamoto. We like the kind with a spicy peanut butter broth, and we also like the seats at the counter where you can watch all the ramen being made. Try this place for a casual weeknight sort of thing, or stop by for a quick meal before you go out drinking in Williamsburg.

Off the main stretch in Williamsburg is Aurora, a place charming enough for a First/Early in the Game Date, calm enough for Dinner with the Parents, and with an insane, well-greened Outdoor/Patio Situation.

Sushi Of Gari Tribeca
For us, there are few culinary pleasures in life that exceed sushi bar swagging at Sushi of Gari, watching an old master fish sculptor slice up some heavenly creations destined for our bellies. Unfortunately, this Gari location is our least favorite yet.

Sunday in Brooklyn
A Williamsburg restaurant that’s a good place for brunch, and an even better place to hang out.
Five years after it opened, the original location of Totto Ramen is still packed pretty much all of the time. That's because it's still awesome.
