Hanging at Enid’s is like being a kid and spending the weekend at the cool house down the street, where you could play the most radical video games and the parents let you drink. On Sundays, Enid’s—presided over by a life-size gold camel—is the perfect mellow-date destination: Grab a cheap beer from the attractive bar staff and watch ’80s TV shows or play video games. You’ll never want to go home.

Enid’s was one of the first cool restaurants in Greenpoint – before Greenpoint became Little Williamsburg. The space is comfortable cool – down to the pinball machines and the glittery gold camel on the wall. I’ve never had to wait for a table and there are outdoor tables on the wide Driggs sidewalk in the summertime. The food is mediocre comfort food – even at brunch which is a little disappointing. Turns out you CAN mess up brunch… But it is a decent alternative when the wait is just too long at 5 Leaves. Probably the thing that people love about Enid’s most isn’t the food, though. It’s the atmosphere. Check out the late night dance parties and you’ll see what I mean.
