The Hive isn’t fully either a bar or a restaurant, but since Williamsburg already has a ton of both those things, it’s useful to know about a place that exists somewhere in between. The bright space has a long bar that’s a solid option for drinks and a bite with a friend, but the majority of the space is filled with tables that can be reserved, and which work for a group dinner before a night out in the neighborhood. Wherever you sit, get a couple strong cocktails or inexpensive bottles of wine (there are multiple options for under $40), and share the very good burger with gouda and tomato chutney or the espresso-infused fried chicken sandwich. Or both.
