  • Cheap Eats

    Though the neighborhood's upscale-casual restaurants receive the lion's share of attention, Williamsburg teems with cheaper options too. Williamsburg Pizza is just one example: affordable prices, top-quality ingredients and "old school Brooklyn" crust have conspired to make this eatery one of the neighborhood's worst-kept secrets. Traditionalists can opt for the Grandma pie (basil, Parmigiano-Reggiano, olive oil, fresh mozzarella and tomato sauce), while more adventurous types can try the apple bacon edition (featuring the obvious ingredients, along with smoked fresh mozzarella, Gorgonzola and crushed walnuts).

     

    There's plenty beyond pizza. Head to Pies 'n' Thighs for some of the City's most savory fried chicken (and don't forget a side of mac and cheese, which comes with hot sauce). For under ten bucks, sample the local Latin American fare by grabbing a burrito stuffed with delectable carnitas or carne asada at one of the food trucks parked in various locations around Bedford Avenue between Metropolitan and North 7th Street.
