Ba’sik is where you go in Williamsburg for a relatively quiet night with friends. It might be busy (and it might even be hard to find a seat), but this isn’t the sort of place where people get blackout and use the bathroom exclusively in pairs. It’s just a nice, smallish bar with a minimalist design and a surprisingly decent selection of bar food. You can have a kale salad or a chili dog or a deviled duck egg. And if it’s warm out, you should be in the backyard. It’s bigger than you expect, and it’s perfect for a first date (although maybe bring some bug spray).
