One of the best places for a big group hang in South Brooklyn, Threes Brewing now has a second smaller, vibier location. This one is in Greenpoint (in what was formerly the Cassette space), and in addition to rotating draughts, bottles, and cans that beer people will get excited about, they’re also serving really tasty food. You’ll find stuff you’d expect to eat at a beer place (a burger, tacos, grilled cheese) and stuff you might not (farro salad, avocado sandwich). The next time you’re looking to catch up with a friend, not spend a whole lot of money, and not have to fight people for seats or elbow room, consider the new Threes. It’s a great low-key hang.

There’s this thing. It’s called The Feel Good Factor™. Meadowsweet in Williamsburg has a whole bunch of it.
The Farm on Adderley
The Farm on Adderley is a really good, comfortable restaurant in a neighborhood that seems to have relatively few of those.

Fred's at Barneys NY
Why on earth are we reviewing a famous department store restaurant? Because it’s hilarious, that’s why. Nowhere else will you find such an entertaining mix of blown-out 55-going-on-22 moms, burnt-out post-college city natives, and people who think they look like celebrities but most definitely aren’t.
What we have found at Blind Tiger is a New York City bar that actually has an extensive microwbrew selection AND excellent food. Unfortunately, the place gets very crowded at times.
Root & Bone
Root & Bone in the East Village is Southern food done right. Hit it for dinner, hit it for brunch, hit it for takeout. Whatever you do, just hit it.

Lavender Lake could get away with being a just great bar with a large outdoor patio. However, it scores extra points from us for putting some care into curating a small but solid selection of bar snacks and entree sized plates.
Threes Brewing is one of the better places for a laid-back big group hang in Brooklyn.
