For some reason, Williamsburg now has three hotels within a few blocks of each other, and they all have fancy-ish restaurants on the ground floor. The one at The Williamsburg Hotel is called Harvey, and it’s the lesser of the three (the others being Leuca and Reynard). The menu is American and Italian, and it’s both boring and not very good. And this is unfortunate, because the space is really nice. It’s just below ground-level, with high ceilings, a bar in the middle, and a lounge area up front, and while you don’t need to have dinner here, it might be a good and convenient spot for a cocktail.

The Smith Midtown
If Midtown East is the final frontier of food-obsessed New York City, The Smith Midtown is the Starship Enterprise.
Perry St is a nice place, but it’s completely sterile and a little stuffy. The food was a let down - we expect a more dynamic meal from a Jean Georges restaurant.
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.
