From the outside, Fada looks like another small, dark spot in Williamsburg that probably serves a cheese plate and mussels. And this assumption is probably what keeps this French spot from getting too crowded on the weekends, despite being close to McCarren Park and the Bedford L stop. But the real selling point of Fada is its big backyard that looks like a cross between a greenhouse and a private terrace in a Mediterranean villa. Make this the second stop on your casual McCarren Park date one-two punch.
