Opened by a chef (who grew up at the nearby Cooper Park Houses) and his wife, Taste of Heaven is a soul food spot in East Williamsburg where “home of fall-of-the-bone meat” should be the motto. There are different specials every day, and each plate comes with two sides. We like the tender-but-not-mushy Jack Daniel’s ribs alongside cabbage and yams. If you want enough leftovers for the next few days, add fried shrimp and a jerk chicken that’s not too spicy in case you don't handle heat well. Just know that this place only has one table and closes at 7pm. They do run out of stuff too, so plan to come here for lunch for the best selection.
