Blue Connoisseur: Williamsburg - Brooklyn

Written by
Lauren Grisanti


Restaurants, bars, strip clubs, coffee shops, yoga studios - you’ll find it all and more in Williamsburg. I moved to the area in the spring of 2011.  The apartment was located
a block from the Lorimer L train stop, which I found after attending an open house craigslist ad.

Walking down the promenade of McCarren Park towards Bedford Avenue was always a favorite weekend activity. You’re met with farmer’s markets, outdoor games like kickball, and people spread out on picnic blankets reading and relaxing. This week’s Blue Connoisseur restaurant blog explores places for drinks, brunch, and dinner.


45 Richardson Street, Brooklyn, NY. 11211

This place is known for boozy brunch, but I  enjoy going to dinner and live music. I absolutely love Brazilian Pao de Queijo “cheese bread”, and Beco makes theirs homemade. The Bauru sandwich doesn’t have a lot of ingredients, but it’s really flavorful. You’ll bite into filet mignon and queijo prato, a brand of Brazilian cheese, and everything will make sense for at least a moment. Bring cash, they don’t accept credit card.

The Blue Stove

415 Graham Ave, Brooklyn, NY 11211
(718) 766-7419

There was a point in time when I was going to The Blue Stove every weekend.  Walking into the storefront, you’ll see a countertop of kitchen inventory filled pies and baked goods wrapped in ribbon.  On the weekends (10:00 am-4:00 pm), they offer egg sandwiches made with buttermilk biscuits, sharp cheddar and sausage. They also serve great chicken pot pies, and everything is made from scratch.

Night of Joy Bar

667 Lorimer St, Brooklyn, NY 11211
(718) 388-8693

Many of my friends have celebrated their birthdays at Night of Joy, it has a great space in the front for large groups.  During warmer months the rooftop that opens up makes the space ideal for after work happy hour. My favorite thing about this bar is its list of great cocktails with floral ingredients and infusions. The rosemary and ginger bourbon is one of my go-to's, and the basil-lime gin gimlet is a must try.

Shalom Japan

310 South Fourth St. Brooklyn, NY 11211

I was lucky to snag a table at this unassuming corner spot in South Williamsburg without a reservation. “Inauthentic Jewish and Japanese food”, offers a playful approach from a husband and wife collaborative effort. Plates are designed to be shared, I highly recommend the matzoh ball ramen and teriyaki duck wings.
