Allswell @ Williamsburg (brunch!): This corner restaurant on a busy stretch of Bedford Avenue has a relaxed, welcoming feel, as though it's been around a long time. Country inn touches abound, like the large rectangle-paned windows, swatches of mismatched calico wallpaper, and, in the center, a candelabra light fixture that wouldn't look out of place at Hogwarts.

Yuba, E. Vill - Start with an order of soup dumplings. They’re juicy, porky, and nearly as good as any New Yorkers clamor for, though at $6 an order, they’re a bit pricier. While it might seems redundant to order several things with yuba (tofu skin), the signature ingredient makes for some of the restaurant’s best eating.

The Good Fork, Red Hook (brunch!): Van Brunt Street is an unlikely restaurant row. This despite, as Red Hook boosters will have you know, the idiosyncratic charm of 360, the retro-chic appeal of Baked, and the engaging beverage bounty at LeNell's, the local liquor "boutique." But little by little, it's getting there, and The Good Fork makes one of the neighborhood's strongest culinary impressions yet.

Been wanting to go here for ages... #aldila #bk
