    Brick chicken, marrow bones, and oysters are all dishes that send Manhattanites running over the Williamsburg bridge to try this restaurant. We think their lattes are worth the bridge run!

    Check the blackboard for the day's oyster selection and know this: If it's there, it's probably from the East Coast and it's almost certainly delicious. Don't forget to stop by the raw bar. Read more

    This place is just amazing. Food is simple and very tasty, great to go with the French natural wines on the list or with the cocktails from the bar. Very prof staff helps a lot!

    Adorable, nice indoor and outdoor space. Not single vegan option though. Go for the almond cortado and hang with your omnivore friends

    The oysters & brick chicken are always excellent but if you make it in for brunch, the squid ink farro is quite special.

    This place is so awesome you can be sure to have an amazing meal if you do exactly as I say: start with some oysters, them get the crostini, a salad and or soup, the pasta, and any protein of the day.

    "There's a great tortilla Española and reliably wonderful brick chicken, a clever list of natural wines, and probably the best playlist of any restaurant in NYC (well, if you like disco).” - Gabe Ulla Read more

    Whatever main you choose (they are all good), get an order of the Brussels sprouts. Lightly fried and sprinkled with Parmesan. Don't forget to pick up a bag of pastries on your way out. They're free!

    We love this place! You must get the Chicken Liver Pate and a whole lot of oysters to start. The dinner specials change daily, and we recommend ordering one of them.

    without a doubt, a nyc fave.. ALWAYS! from the oysters to the tortilla de patata to the salads to the brick chicken to the pastas to the chocolate caramel tart with sea salt to the breakfast biscuit!

    A Williamsburg institution. Friendly staff and high quality ingredients. Brunch is fantastic. Recommend the biscuit and eggs as a primer -- the scones and spinach pie are among the best in NYC!

    There's a reason this place has been a Williamsburg staple for sometime. Excellent cocktails, but most importantly incredible food and experience. Order several starters and the brick chicken.

    Insider tip: if there is a brown bag by the door snag it on your way out for an after dinner treat as it is free DELICIOUS baked goods from the day. This menu is fantastic and it changes daily.

    Everything is always amazing. Whiskey selection is impressive. And if you're an LCD Soundsystem fan, this is the place they have the final dinner in "Shut Up and Play the Hits".

    Earl grey scone was so good, sautéed greens/soft boiled eggs/ sausage egg cheese ( tiny size. Like weirdly small. but with REALLY good biscuits. ) all v good and will def come back

    Love this place. Perfect for all occasions. Enjoyed everything. The "Bianca pizza" is basically an overpriced plain focaccia, yet it was so good we got a 2nd order.

    Reasonable amount of social conscience without hitting you over the head with it. Steak looks well rested, it's a beautiful thing & they serve ribeye, the king of steaks- it's fatty, tasty, delicious.

    Really nice meal and great location for a date. Go for the pork over the chicken. Both are great but the pork is by far a better meal altogether

    The Shadowfax was a perfect drink. A delicate balance of whisky, Earl Greg and egg white. Not too sweet, not too strong. Not too much of anything -- except possibly too good.

    The restaurant's signature dish is the result of what happens when you sandwich half a chicken between a roaring hot skillet and a 35-pound brick. One of our 5 favorite roast chickens in the city! Read more

    This food was gorgeous, and it's got a great nautical feeling/trendy vibe (apparently historically an oyster bar). The service can with a large whiff of snubbery though.

    Your server will try to push the Brick Chicken... which is great. But The Dad is what it's all about. Make your date get the chicken, have a bite, and then enjoy the yummy/meaty juicy-ness of The Dad.

    The brick chicken makes chicken seem more like a perfectly discovered truffle from the hills of Tuscany - this ain't just chicken yo! Or try the steak, it's a big F-U to Peter Luger.
