The original Egg Shop is in Nolita, but this location is in Williamsburg - and it’s an infinitely better place to eat your eggs. (We like the Nolita one, but it gets a little cramped.) So if you’re craving a sandwich or a bowl of vegetables with an egg on it, and you have time to spare, we recommend you cross the East River. This place is bright with high ceilings, and there’s a little bar area up front. They also do burritos at this location, and these make for a good, quick breakfast or lunch.

Café De La Esquina
The folks at La Esquina were smart to tone it down when they made the venture across the East River to Williamsburg. Café De La Esquina may be slightly pricey, but we are very down with what they're serving up.
Pies 'n' Thighs
The new Pies ‘n’ Thighs has opened its doors, and Williamsburg’s most influential hipsters are rejoicing. This new, larger location is still turning out amazing fried chicken and comfort food classics.
Off the main stretch in Williamsburg is Aurora, a place charming enough for a First/Early in the Game Date, calm enough for Dinner with the Parents, and with an insane, well-greened Outdoor/Patio Situation.

Union Square Cafe
Union Square Cafe is a classic New York City restaurant having its second life in a new space. The good news? It’s still as good as ever.
No, it’s not a bowling alley in Times Square. It’s the 25-year-old Keith McNally restaurant that’s way more fun than Balthazar.
Blue Ribbon Brasserie
The original Blue Ribbon in Soho, in which you can eat bone marrow, fried chicken, and oysters from a white table cloth at 3am. What a world.
