Eat and Drink in Williamsburg

Continuing with the food themes of today, I would be remiss in not pointing out that, when it comes to eating and drinking in this town, Williamsburg is a world all its own. (I would be remiss in not  pointing out that I have personally spent next to no time in Williamsburg. Therefore I am not an expert on food and drink in this 'hood. But that doesn't mean I can't point out to my faithful audience what a great place it is to go to eat, drink, and make merry in). To whit: 

The Village Voice has a great article on something called Smorgasburg, an outdoor food festival held every Saturday through November. The article gives some great advice on some of the best food items you can get there -- and man, do they look scrumptious!

Also, yours truly went to a bar recently in Williamsburg called Berry Park. Now I'm not much of a bar hound but, whenever I find one in this town that I like, I feel the need to give it "props." Unlike crampy, noisy bars in Manhattan, Berry Park is a big, open space (I think the building used to be a factory). It has a huge downstairs area and, even better, a great roof deck with a gorgeous view of the Manhattan skyline. They have a great selection of beers and the people who work there are very friendly. There are lots and lots of bars in Williamsburg and I'm sure many others could tell you about other great places but, if you're ever in need of a bar in this neighborhood, you can't go wrong with Berry Park.

Finally, the nation appears to be falling in love with waitresses from Williamsburg. A new show on CBS called 2 Broke Girls appears to be a big hit and it is about ... guess what?

If any of you can know of other great eating and drinking options in Williamsburg, please feel free to share!
