Sobre Masa combines two things we really like: hand-pressed corn tortillas and some big garage doors, which give this Williamsburg all-day Mexican cafe a pseudo-beachy feel when they’re open - especially after a paloma or three. You can swing through in the morning for coffee and some breakfast tacos, stop by in the afternoon to work and have a paloma and some sopes, or split the ceviche and costillas over a bottle of wine at dinner (Sobre Masa is the sister spot to nearby Sauced and they always have some interesting bottles on hand). And make sure to grab a concha or palmier if you come through during the day. The chef here was the pastry chef at Per Se and The Grill in a past life and all the pastries are truly excellent.
