Where to in Brooklyn?

Hi, I'm planning to stay 5 days in Brooklyn, Bedford area (Williamsburg) and would highly appreciate suggestions on interesting places in Brooklyn to dine and food-shop (markets, pubs, cafes, resaturants). I'm not into pricy "dress up" restaurants, but rather looking for places that have personality and creative flavour.
thanks in advance!

  1. You'll get better replies if you mention the cross street of where you're staying. Bedford Ave. is over 10 miles long.

      Thank you, Bob - I'm actually not looking for places only around the area where I'm going to stay - I'd like to hear about any interesting places in Brooklyn that the locals can recommend. I am willing to travel for the good stuff:-)

        Still, you'll get more useful answers if you provide details. Did you know Brooklyn is 93 square miles with approximately 3,000,000 residents?

        That said, here you go: Peter Luger

          Well, that's not coming as a surprise:-) I'm coming from Toronto, and I'm pretty flexible with travelling around big cities. I just don't want to loose opportunities by going down to the specific area.
          Thank you very much for your recommendation:-)
