There’s a good chance you’ve never heard of DeStefano’s, which is weird, because it’s one of the best places to grab a steak in Williamsburg. It’s an old-school spot on a relatively quiet block just north of the Lorimer stop of the L train, and from the outside, it looks like a small house you’d find in a much quieter town than Brooklyn. The inside is just as charming, with wedding photos and group portraits covering the walls, and, while it isn’t an especially fancy place, it still feels special. In large part, that’s because of the food. Start your meal with a few slices of the sweet, charred bacon, then finish with some creamed corn and a porterhouse that comes out sizzling in a puddle of its own jus.
