PLAN DATE: MON / OCT. 15
Williamsburg is known for its eclectic style, and Zizi Limona is proof of that. With a simple turquoise facade and an interior coated in a mish-mash of colorful tiles, opaque partitions, and a homey, lived-in feel that extends to the floor-to-ceiling shelves showing off its vast culinary fundamentals, this restaurant is all about classic Middle Eastern cuisine. Shakshuka is served in a giant metal bowl, the crunchy falafel is a house favorite, and the pita bread is free. This checks all the culinary boxes for Middle Eastern flavors and atmosphere.
Next, savor all the cozy, chic goodness at St. Mazie. This cocktail lounge rocks rustic-mod with confidence, from the golden lunar bulbs and curved ceiling to the gradient plaster walls and greenhouse-esque back patio. There’s a folksy charm that is hard to come by in the city, extending all the way to its live music performances and craft cocktails that include standouts like the refreshing Midnight Cable and the classy Old Hotel.
