Williamsburg? (manhattan-centric food lover trying to convert self to Brooklynism)

carignane | Mar 21, 2008 02:44 PM

food obsessed pastry chef and boyfriend headed to Williamsburg this saturday to explore the neighborhood and possibly apartment-hunt, as we're looking to buy, and we've been priced out of our beloved East Village....

we're looking for a vibrant neighborhood with great affordable restaurants, interesting bars, and unique specialty food shops...Williamsburg, are you our neighborhood?

assuming the weather is nice, we plan to get out at the Bedford stop and wander, stopping at a few open houses on the way. i've only been to Williamsburg a few times to visit friends with rooftops in the summer and to go to Galapagos....i know..i'm a Manhattan me!

what restaurants/shops do you recommend? where would you send a couple in their late twenties for a fun tasty dinner and a slice of Williamsburg life? fun place(s) for drinks afterwards?

any advice appreciated...thank you!
