Beyond Bedford Avenue, Williamsburg doesn’t have a lot of good takeout places. The whole fast-casual thing hasn’t really made it over there, and that’s probably because there aren’t many offices. Samesa is Williamsburg’s take on your favorite workday lunch spot, and they do a mean plate of chicken shawarma. The space feels like a hole-in the wall restaurant you’d find off the beach in LA, and the surfer vibes are amplified by their za’taar wings and garlic fries. There aren’t many places to sit, but come here for good, fun takeout.
