Jaffa is the final piece of Michael Solomonov’s mini-empire at The Hoxton hotel, which also houses Laser Wolf and K’Far. His third restaurant is a large cocktail and raw bar on the second-floor terrace, and it’s a relative safe zone for people who want to drink outside in Williamsburg without being in danger of going home with a DJ. The frozen cocktails and bucket of beer on the menu are a nod to the rooftop rager, but there’s no ear-splitting music and much better food. Jaffa clearly shares groceries with its sister restaurants—the menu includes oysters with a schug mignonette, scallops with shipka peppers, and pull-apart challah rolls that you may recognize from K’Far. They have a couple of bigger dishes, but it's not really a dinner spot. Come by for drinks and crudo before a longer night out in the neighborhood.
