Concord Hill is like the Westville of East Williamsburg, meaning similar vegetable-focused food, but with fewer people wearing Sperrys and backwards UVA hats. The small space packs in a bunch of two-person tables and has a bar in the back. It works for a casual weeknight dinner with a friend, but we like it best at brunch, when people have tables full of healthy-ish bowls and less-healthy things like breakfast burritos and white wine sangria.
