Restaurants and/ or Bars Near Brooklyn Bowl

Hi,

We are going to Brooklyn Bowl tonight, and my husband would like to have progressive drinks and appetizers from about 4 to 6 in Williamburg before we go (preferrably, walk) over to BB.

Could you please send me your thoughts of any CH worthy places that might fit the bill? We will clearly be having Blue Ribbon at Brooklyn Bowl, but are looking for great appies and drinks in advance.

Thank you!!!

  1. Sorry you didn't get any replies in time, coleyas. I would have said that Brooklyn Bowl is pretty close to DOC Wine Bar, d.b.a. Brooklyn, and Hotel Delmano.... (It's also close to Brooklyn Brewery, but you can't visit there on Saturday nights.) Where did you guys end up going? Please report if you found something you liked!

        There's a ton of places. What kind of food or atmosphere are you looking for?

        1. re: kariface

          Really anything, but not too upscale. i want to wear jeans. Indian is the only food I'm not that fond of. Also, if you know of anything close for breakfast the next day, that would be ideal........Thanks for replying.

          1. re: diablo

            Well, Indian is the one thing around that sucks, so you're in luck there. Mabel's Smokehouse is right around the corner is getting a lot of good feedback - I havent been there yet to vouch for it, but friends of mine from texas have been and love it. I really like the counting room, for small plates and good wine. Additionally, I think your best bet will be Five Leaves - it's a fantasic casual joint with excellent food. The wait there can be long, as its tiny, but as long as you're there earlier than 7, it should be fine.

            As for breakfast, Five Leaves is also great for brunch. I love Egg (southern), Fada (french) and El Almacen (argentinean) for breakfast as well.

            Everything is walkable from Brooklyn Bowl and close. Enjoy!

              Awesome! Thank you so much!

      2. Due to scheduling conflicts, we were not able to get breakfast this go-round. However, we did go on Friday to get the 6 beers for $20 at the Brooklyn Brewery, which has a great atmosphere. Very crowded, hipster crowd, everyone friendly and laid back. Ate Blue Ribbon the Brooklyn Bowl after that. The best fried chicken I have ever had. And I say this having traveled and lived throughout the South. Get the mix 1/2 chicken dinner. Out of this world good. Collard greens side was also good, mashed potatoes were clearly homemade. Chicken is served atop a hunk of white bread (didn't eat that, but nice touch). The bartenders are excellent. Totally on top of their game (if you will). Really cool venue for a show. One caveat; watch the one female bouncer with the multi-colored hair. She has no qualms about grabbing people by the wrist and barking her orders at them, first for me to get back inside when I happened to wander out with a cup of water "Doesn't matter! NO open containers"! Umm, okay. Water? But okay. Second time when we were leaving for the night due to some kind of ruckus on the street. "Everyone get BACK IN! You don't want to see this"! I understand she's doing her job, but grabbing peaceable people is not okay. Even so, I would go back for the venue and the awesome chicken. Oh yeah, DH had the burger and fries. Watch out, they serve the burger piping hot (good thing in my book--he burned his tongue). The shoestring fries they served on the side were excellent as well as the pickles on the burger.
