    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!

    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.

    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!

    Love the crispy rice bowl, sausage, egg and cheese biscuit, iced chai latte, and great pastries, particularly any scone with clotted cream and jam.

    You can always find oysters, cured meats, and the famous brick chicken on the dinner menu, as well as rustic, market-driven specials. Read more

    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.

    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.

    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!

    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

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

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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".

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

    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

    Love the restaurant in back for a cozy, dimly lit brunch or dinner, and the welcoming, homey front shop for some of our favorite coffee in town. Read more

    order everything and split it. oysters, brick chicken, pasta, crostini. save room for their seasonal dessert. if you're into candy, get the signature caramel sea salt tart

    Went for lunch. It's counter service with food brought to table. Liver pate, Potato tortilla (not sure why it's called that, it's like a cake) and salami's were delicious.
  • Basak H.
    One of my favorite date spots with delicious cocktails. Start with potato tortilla and meat plate.

    I run over the Williamsburg Bridge and have bfast here every morning. I get either their homemade yogurt or a muffin. M&S is Americana done right, unleashing hungry packs of European Haut-Bohemians. Read more

    Love the baked goods here especially when they make multiple cakes with same ingredients yet so so different. Today was coconut! My fab apart fr rhubarb!

    Seasonal menu, dim lighting, old apothecary feel to the space. You will be sitting on a stool literally on top to the person next to you, but it's worth it.

    The brick chicken will leave you impressed with the tender unctiousness that's possible with bird. So incredible

    Morning coffee and baked goods are the best. The oysters and brick chicken are their staples. But keep an eye out for specials.

    Simple and fresh food, cozy ambient. Great place to go with friends, have some wine, oysters, rosted chicken and whatever else they have available.

    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.

    The menu changes daily, but be sure to start every meal with oysters and some sparkling wine. Order one of everything and stuff your face.

    If you are lucky enough to see monkfish tripe on your menu, don't hesitate. Get two orders. Get three! If not, everything else is amazing.

    The burger, biscuits & gravy, house-made baked goods...everything on the menu was fantastic. Only glitch we found was the lack of service in the "take out" space.

    The chocolate caramel torte sprinkled with sea salt might be the best damn dessert in the world. Service can be spotty, but always super friendly.

    The pork shank takes 20-30 minutes, but it's worth every second of the wait.

    Have the oysters and the carpaccio to start and you'll be well on your way to a great meal.
