Like the other three nice hotels within a couple blocks in North Williamsburg, The Williamsburg Hotel has a big, attractive restaurant on its ground floor. Seven Seeds serves Middle Eastern-leaning food like shakshuka and four different types of shawarma, and it’s a good option for a client lunch or brunch with parents. They also serve lots of vegetarian options at every meal, and a high-tea program that will make you feel like you could have a hereditary title.
