If you knew a guy who could make you very good Mediterranean food in your own home, you probably wouldn’t eat out as much. But, since you probably don’t know that guy, you should eat at Dar 525 for a similar feel. It’s a causal Mediterranean spot where you can eat falafel, pistachio pizza, or shakshuka in a space that feels like a standard living room. There’s a couch, daybed, and two huge skylights, which have a calming effect even during weekends when the restaurant fills up with people in need of bottomless mimosas.

Suggested by our writers
Lighthouse is our go-to spot in Williamsburg for a casual, kind of healthy, but still impressive meal.
The Commodore is bad. Bad because merely looking at the food here will jack up your cholesterol thirty points, and worse because everything is so good that you’ll crave it all the time.
