This is a must-visit spot if you consider yourself to be a foodie. Smorgasburg is a food market showcasing a highly curated selection of food vendors. You can get everything from ramen burgers to New York-style pizza and Koran BBQ (there is definitely something for everyone here). It’s located right next to the water in Marsha P.Johnson State Park in Williamsburg.
If you’re looking for a good dinner spot in Williamsburg I would highly recommend Lilia. This is a very popular go-to spot for many locals where you can enjoy some delicious Italian dishes like ravioli and gnocchi.
Juliette is one of my favorite restaurants in Williamsburg with a killer French-inspired menu. This place is perfect for a weekend brunch. Try to get a table in their beautiful garden room full of hanging plants.
You can’t go wrong with a classic NY slice. L’Industrie Pizzeria has some of the best pizzas in New York City and is a must-visit while you’re in Williamsburg.
This place is not featured enough on the internet. Surfbar has been one of my favorite restaurants for years and has amazing seafood (shrimp tacos are my favorite). It has the coolest and most unusual interior I’ve seen in New York City and has a surf and beach theme. The floor is filled with sand and the walls are covered with surfboards and other beach decor. They even have a cozy backyard where you can sit during the warmer months.
