Now that the weather is getting nicer (hopefully), my family and I were discussing doing a bit of a food tour of Williamsburg on a Saturday in May. We are local (northern NJ and CT) and my husband and I are fairly familiar with Williamsburg, but my parents probably haven't been to Brooklyn since the 80's. There will be 6 of us and I figured we'd go from brunch/lunch through dinner (probably eating a little bit at each place as we go rather than just doing 2 full meals). I have a couple of places in mind, but I figured I'd use the collective Chowhound knowledge to get some more suggestions/tips.
So far the places on my list are:
Spuyten Duyvil (my husband and I are big beer geeks and we've been here a bunch of times) - possibly having something to eat at St. Anselm
Mast Brothers (my parents used to own a chocolate store, so they really want to go here)
Pie's and Thighs?
Brooklyn Brewery? (we've been here before and I'm not sure it's right for this day, but I thought it might be a good place to sit and have a beer while we take a break from walking around)
What other places should we not miss? My sister is a pastry chef, so I was wondering if there are any other really good pastry shops/bakeries that we should definitely make sure to go to.
