Even if you spend a lot of time in Williamsburg, it’s entirely possible you’ve never heard of Maracuja - a bar on Grand Street with a hidden back patio overrun by plants and wooden benches. The ownership team changed in 2021, and now they serve a ton of natural wine (as well as classic cocktails and beer) and Spanish tapas and paella. Come during daily Happy Hour between 4-7pm when draft beer costs $5, frozen cocktails cost $8, and wine carafes cost $18. Just don’t let the sidewalk patio fool you, you want to be drinking in the secluded backyard here.

Part natural wine bar, part restaurant, The Four Horsemen is one of our favorite places to drink and eat in Brooklyn.
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.
