Food scene
Here are some of our favorite spots in the area! These places have more of s "local vibe" than a "tourist vibe" - I hope that you enjoy!
Super cozy bar serving all sorts of beer - tell them a friend of Ben sent you! What it is: Overwhelmingly more beer bar than beer store, the upscale spot is both in the middle of and far enough away from the hustle of Williamsburg’s trendier spots and bustle of Greenpoint’s city-like avenues. The venue focuses on (and succeeds at) bringing unique ales, lagers, lambics and everything in between from around the world into one friendly but smart neighborhood spot. Why we love it: Where to begin? The beer selection is wider than you’d imagine, with a tap list of 16 drafts ranging from casual to connoisseur favorites with a few talked-about seasonals sprinkled in, a draft line of kombucha (which is, in fact alcoholic at a whopping 1.3 percent) and a bottle list so deep you won’t know where to begin (an 82 bottle mix of domestics and imports ranging from 12 oz to large format bottles). Who to bring: Brunch goers who would be pleased with an unlimited beer brunch for $18 (every Sunday until 4); anyone who loves beer; anyone who likes cocktails; anyone willing to try the bartender’s inventive beer cocktails or one-of-a-kind Bloody Mary’s. What to order: If you’re hungry, the soft pretzels are melt-in-your-mouth and can be paired with a variety of choice dipping sauces (the chipotle mayo is a winner). The pulled pork sandwich is big, moist and hard not to devour like a monster and the grilled cheese is pretty good, too. But the main goal should be to try a few of the 16 drafts and 82 bottles ranging from local and state-side favorites to selects you’ve never heard of from around the world. There is a beer and shot deal, but the bar keeps it quiet to keep from disturbing the loyal locals there to try some good beer. Fun fact: One Stop has a card club, called the Beer Society, that rewards you for your loyal patronage and beer guzzling tendencies. If you’re really into the beer scene, get a card (free) and try to get through the select list of 40 bottles – you’ll get your name on a plaque on the wall, and if you’re really ambitious, you can continue on to phase two, which challenges you with a list of 20 large-format bottles. For that, the managing partner will take your prize down of the wall to the plaque making station in the basement and add gold bottle cap with a “II” insignia that he hand paints himself.

There is truly nothing like a French brunch. If you want the quality croissant you deserve or the pain au chocolat you desperately need, then you can have it at La Cafette in Williamsburg. The French have given us so many delicious delicacies; it’s hard to decide which one to choose. At this place, you won’t have to pretend you’re anything but a hungry, borderline Francophile to get fed. For those of us who want that perfectly cooked and shaped egg, no one does it quite like the French. You can’t go wrong when ordering the Croque Madame if you love a breakfast sandwich. There are also options of rotisserie chicken, a delicious french toast, roasted potatoes, and granola. The atmosphere is inviting and quaint, with not much seating inside. You may have to sit at the bar if you arrive during peak brunching hours. However, the owner is nothing but nice and will be an accommodating presence in this harsh, New York world.

Ringolevio is a Mediterranean restaurant opened by childhood friends, tucked away in the quaint East Williamsburg/Greenpoint area. The name ''Ringolevio'' comes from an old variation of the tag game that was played in the bustling streets of New York City and Brooklyn since WWI. Like the game, Ringolevio (the restaurant) offers a home base for the neighborhood.

Neighborhoods
Bushwick is a working-class neighborhood in the northern part of the New York City borough of Brooklyn. It is bounded by the neighborhood of Ridgewood, Queens, to the northeast; Williamsburg to the northwest; East New York and the cemeteries of Highland Park to the southeast; Brownsville to the south; and Bedford-Stuyvesant to the southwest. The town was first founded by Europeans during the Dutch colonization of the Americas in the 17th century. In the 19th century, the neighborhood became a community of Germanic immigrants and their descendants; by the late 20th century, it became predominantly Hispanic as another wave of immigrants arrived. Formerly Brooklyn's 18th Ward, the neighborhood was once an independent town and has undergone various territorial changes throughout its history.
