(East) Williamsburg Options

I've just moved into the neighborhood (close to the Montrose Stop on the L) and find myself very eager to discover my new hood's culinary charms.
While I've done a search for East Williamsburg already, most of the postings that came up were older and potentially outdated.
Because of this I am hoping that the good hounds out there will help me by sharing information, advice and suggestions regarding their favorites, their go-to's, their must-be-avoideds, their splurges, their comforts, their delivery-spots, and all the other in betweens that are in this neck of the woods.

All that said, I am willing to go a bit out of the way for anything exceptional, so you bring the suggestions and I'll bring my appetite.

So much thanks in advance!

  1. The carne enchilada tortas at the Grand Diner (24 hr coffee shop on Grand St) are fantastic.

    Also, there is a great Mexican place (on Bushwick half a block up from the Montrose Stop) called Chile Verde.

    1. i haven't tried it yet, but there's a restaurant called mojito loco i've been meaning to go to on meserole between leonard and manhattan. my friends went and said it was pretty good and their mojitos are, well, crazy (ha). i think they deliver too.

      1. re: mrock

        Mojito loco has solid margaritas. I didn't try the food when I was there, but it looked good!

      2. I also just moved to the area right by the Montrose Stop. I used to live by the Grand stop (I keep moving further and further along the L Train...) so I'm pretty familiar with Bahia, but wondering about anything else closer to the Montrose stop, or on Graham headed towards Broadway. Chili Verde is apparently closed down...
