This place is kind of like an SNL sketch of Williamsburg that’s set in a bodega. Rather than greasy BECs, this all-day spot serves turmeric tofu burritos, a BLT with tempeh and veganaise, and a Philly seitan steak. You can also get less-healthy things like breakfast tacos. Sit at one of the picnic tables right off McCarren Park, or grab some picnic items from the grocery section.

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.
A classic New York City gem, still standing from a time when horse and buggies were bringing people here to drink. Eat the chicken club sandwich, drink a Stella from the tap, and imagine that you're about to head off for a sweet vacation aboard the Titanic.
