Great heros at Cono's (williamsburgh)

  • j

I never hear people talking about this, though I mentioned it in my book. cono's, in williamsburg, is a good neapolitan fish restaurant, very old fashioned (so old fashioned that you can't easily find this style of cooking in naples anymore!). I recommend it.

but there's a takeout window at the rear selling INCREDIBLE hot heros. Really wonderful. And you can watch the action in their amazing, bustling, gleaming kitchen while you wait (pick up cooking tricks!)

Cono & Sons O'Pescatore Restaurant
301 Graham Avenue (near Ainslie Street), Williamsburgh, Brooklyn
(718) 388-0168

  1. Hi Chowhounds,
    You have to try the seafood fra diablo
    Hope i spelled it right.Its just another Willamsburg
    jem.The Cono,s also own a deli/Take out on Graham Ave
    On the corner of Manhattan that has great heroes and
    take out food.Another great old school italian place is Frost.Bamontes gets all the press but both of these places serve up great food and most of the time you can walk in without reservations.

      Sheesh. As if it isn't enough that the restaurant is in the chow guide, now you're going to hook people off the Bedford drag and send them to my favorite neighborhood place. But seriously, this place makes red sauce that bears no resemblance to the red sauce you get elsewhere (mercifully), serves wonderfully fresh fish, and has amazing take-out heroes, and servers in (what more can you ask for?) tuxes.

    2. Do they have space for eating inside the restaurant at the take-out section of Cono and Sons O'Pescatore?

        1. they make great heros esp when you add brocoli rabe. the best time to eat at the restaurant is on tues night when the entire wine list is half price!

          1. Do they serve the heroes in the restaurant as well?
