At some point during Williamsburg’s influx of natural wines and workout classes that double as influencer meetups, you may have forgotten about The Saint Austere. So allow us to jog your memory. This casual Mediterranean spot is on Grand Street, it serves housemade pastas and very good, reasonably priced wines, and it offers a Happy Hour that includes $3 beers and $4 tequila shots. In other words, if you haven’t been to Saint Austere since the last papal term, you should sit at the bar for a drink and snack after work, or come with a date and share the lamb shank parmigiana and pork shoulder cavatelli with meatballs.

A Carroll Gardens Mexican bar and restaurant, owned by Jim Cramer from CNBC. Surprisingly, it is entirely devoid of yelling. It’s pretty damn good, too.
Everybody loves a good farm-focused restaurant. We especially love this Clinton Hill one.
The Commodore is bad. Bad because merely looking at the food here will jack up your cholesterol thirty points, and worse because everything is so good that you’ll crave it all the time.
