Siblings Assaf and Naama Tamir, alums of Employees Only and Macao Trading Co., are behind this casual New American eatery in South Williamsbug. The sunny space is outfitted with black ceiling fans, exposed brick and communal wood tables. Bend an elbow at the cherry-wood-and-steel bar and order a cocktail, like the Cherry Blossom (framboise, cherry brandy, gin, lemon, prosecco) or the El Duderino (a White Russian with tequila instead of vodka). To eat, choose from a seasonal menu of raw-bar plates, pickles, salads and entrées, including whole fish with roasted fennel and beets, and rib eye with charred jalapeño, all executed by chef Nicholas Cox (La Esquina).

One of the best restaurants we ate during our trip to NYC. And just around the corner in Williamsburg you do not expect such excellent cuisine. Looking at the menu it all looks pretty straightforward, but once you have ordered and tasted the burrata or ceviche you seem to have entered food heaven.
