Miss Favela is Brazilian restaurant below the Williamsburg Bridge, and it feels like a beach party in Rio. It’s painted in bright colors, it isn’t the least bit fancy, and sometimes there’s live music. When there is, feel free to get up and dance. That’s what happens here. The food itself is simple Brazilian stuff like chicken croquettes, steak with french fries, and giant platters of grilled meat. It probably won’t blow your mind, but it’ll get the job done. And the real reason you come here is to drink a few pitchers of caipirinhas and dance on your chair anyways.

Di Fara Pizza
Brooklyn's Di Fara is the best slice of pizza in New York, and worth every bit of the $5 and 30 minutes of waiting that it will cost you.
You’re going to need an hour on the train to get to Tanoreen. But if you appreciate Middle Eastern or Mediterranean food, it’s more than worth it.
