Bricia is a quiet neighborhood Italian restaurant right near the Williamsburg Bridge on the Lower East Side. It's open for brunch and dinner, and the specialty here is homemade pasta (which you can get for around $15). This is the kind of casual, never-too-crowded place where you could sit with a laptop and work, or hang out with a friend for a few hours while the chef periodically checks in and refills your bread basket.
