guide to williamsburg dining
The area of Williamsburg, Brooklyn has evolved considerably in the last decade. Once a neighborhood full of warehouses & loft spaces, it has been completely transformed and modernized. Real estate developers and restauranteurs have flocked here, redeveloping the area into a highly sought after destination. What was once (and still may be) a hipster mecca, is now equipped with the likes of Starbucks, Wholefoods, and Apple. While I have mixed feelings about corporate America taking over this place, there is no doubt that the food scene is remarkable. Here is where to eat:
