As a native 'New Yorker,' here are some of my favorite spots in Brooklyn! (Williamsburg & Greenpoint)

Brunch @ Sunday In Brooklyn

Sunday In Brooklyn, Wythe Avenue, Brooklyn, NY, United States

Amazing brunch! A reservation is a must have on the weekend unless you don't mind waiting 2+ hours. The pancakes are famous here, very rich & sweet so I would recommend sharing them with friends; they are amazing though!

Pizza @ Paulie Gee's

21-16 44th Rd, Long Island City, NY 11101, USA

In my opinion, this is the BEST brick oven pizza in Brooklyn. They are known for drizzling some hot honey on the pizza... They don't take reservations, if you are a big crowd and plan on going on the weekend, get there at 6PM when they open! This place usually has a long wait Thursday through Sunday.

Cocktails At Ramona

Ramona, Franklin Street, Brooklyn, NY, United States

We love cocktails at Ramona! This is a great spot to go to pre, or post dinner in the neighborhood. Very nice atmosphere and great mixologists.

Brunch @ Esme

Esme, Manhattan Avenue, Brooklyn, NY, United States

Esme brunch never disappoints! This is a neighborhood go to spot for locals wanting some good eats. My favorite dish on the menu is the fried chicken sandwich!

Peter Pan Donuts

Peter Pan Donut & Pastry Shop, Manhattan Avenue, Brooklyn, NY, United States

Afternoon sweets? This is your place! Don't go too late though, they will probably run out! The line is out the door in the morning hours... Get a box of 6/12 so you can try all of the flavors.

Quick Brekkie @ Bakeri

248 Queens Plaza S, Long Island City, NY 11101, USA

Bakeri is such a cute spot for morning coffee and fresh pastries.

Date Night @ Marlow & Sons

Marlow & Sons, Broadway, Brooklyn, NY, United States

If you love Oysters, go for it! So fresh & good.

Vegan Ice Cream @ Van Leeuwen

Van Leeuwen Artisan Ice Cream, Wythe Avenue, Brooklyn, NY, United States

Their vegan ice-cream is the best!

Lobster Rolls @ Lobster Joint

Lobster Joint, Manhattan Avenue, Brooklyn, NY, United States

Lobster joint is known for their Lobster Rolls & Bloody Mary's. They have a cute garden in the back for some outdoor seating.

Drink & Play Brooklyn Barge

The Brooklyn Barge, Brooklyn, NY, United States

Fun outdoor spot for spring/summer/fall days in the city. PS - they have wolfer estate rose & food trucks! They also have outdoor drinking games like corn hole and connect 4. AND, they are dog friendly. :)

Berry Park

Berry Park, Berry Street, Brooklyn, NY, United States

I've been to Berry Park several times, from birthday parties to day drinking post brunch this spot is always fun. It's a very casual place in the heart of Williamsburg. It's great for large gatherings with groups of friends as the roof is quite large.

Dinner @ AURORA

Aurora, Grand Street, Brooklyn, NY, United States

We went here for a date night, really good wine and food using fresh ingredients. Definitely recommend trying this spot.
