Italian | Williamsburg, Brooklyn

Wow! What a hidden gem this was! I made my birthday Reservation here based on availability and their menu but I was so happy from the minute I walked in. The hostess was the sweetest as soon as we walked in, the bar/ lounge area was cozy and welcoming. Our server and all the staff were on point- personable and attentive without hovering... but the food! The apps- burrata in filo dough was just heavenly and my cacio e Pepe was phenomenal. I’ve already saved this as a favorite and will definitely be back!!! More

Sushi | Boerum Hill, Brooklyn

Saw the New York restaurant week promo outside the restaurant and decided to try it out. Went in 15 mins before HH is over and took advantage of it. Had the chamosan and a sale mojito (can’t recall the exact name) and they were light and refreshing for such a humid and muggy day. The monkfish karaage & crab cakes appetizer are on point. Lightly battered and done so well and the dip for the crab cakes went so well with the monkfish too. The chef Sushi selection is well spread out. I’m not good with sour taste so the yuzu sorbet is a pass though I did try a few spoonfuls. Overall, a great dinner and music is jamming! More

The service was very good. The waitress was very attentive. All enjoyed their dinner, however my shrimp dish was very salty. I should have said something immediately. Overall it was a positive experience. At one point the area around our table was very hot but they moved us to another table and all was well. More
