If you just want a quick, simple sandwich in Williamsburg, go to Depanneur. It’s a little market on Wythe, and we like to think of it as a bodega that went to grad school and now thinks it’s better than everyone else (because it kind of is). You can get things like Persian yogurt and saltwater taffy here, and you can also get a great pastrami or egg salad sandwich. And if you need a place to eat, there are usually some tables on the sidewalk out front.

The original Pastis closed in 2014, and now there’s a new location (also in the Meatpacking District). It isn’t as cool, but the food is still great.

Sunday in Brooklyn
A Williamsburg restaurant that’s a good place for brunch, and an even better place to hang out.
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.
