There are a lot of casual weeknight dinner options in Williamsburg, but not many that serve food as good as Hanon’s. This Japanese spot specializes in udon, and offers both hot and cold varieties with two types of housemade noodles. Our favorite is the curry udon with really rich broth and tender beef, and if you want something a bit lighter, go with the brothless mentai udon, which has a ton of spicy cod caviar. Definitely get some small plates as well, like the juicy fried chicken that comes with spicy chili paste. This place is worth traveling for (especially because it’s just a few steps from the Lorimer L and G stops) - but know that for the moment, it’s still waiting on a liquor license.

Bamonte’s is a red-sauce Italian spot that’s been open in Williamsburg since 1900, and things here don’t seem to have changed much since then.
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.

Kings County Imperial
Kings County Imperial may not be traditional, but it serves some of our favorite Chinese food in New York City. Definitely our favorite in Brooklyn.
