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.
