Need good place for lunch after cooking class in Williamsburg
Egg, favorite farm-to-table brunch/lunch spot. I had great pulled pork & duck hash there last weekend. There can be a long wait, later is better (http://www.pigandegg.com/).
I also like Diner. I always bring out-of-town friends here. This is another local ingredients type place, grass fed meat and so forth, a wee bit pretentious and hipsterish, could also have a long wait. (http://dinernyc.com/) The same owners have Marlow & Sons next door, completely different vibe and menu. I like both spots. (http://marlowandsons.com/)
A bit off the beaten path but not a particularly far walk from anywhere is Pies 'n' Thighs, great biscuits, fried chicken, old fashioned donuts, and other stuff. http://news.piesnthighs.com/
One of my all-time faves, although you can't really get a meal here, is Bakeri, beautiful design and attention to detail, excellent sweet & savory baked goods, pretty good sandwiches, nice garden in the back if the weather is decent. (http://www.bakeribrooklyn.com/)
A great spot for a daytime beer (especially if the weather is nice for the back garden) and a meat or cheese plate is Spuyten Duyvil (http://spuytenduyvilnyc.com/). Across the street are Momofuku Milk Bar and Saltie, a bit of an odd sandwich place w/ good homemade ice cream.
Another great spot for a drink, although better for cocktails, and in the opposite direction from Spuyten Duyvil, is Hotel Delmano, with a beautiful French country style room, makes you feel like you're not in NYC. (http://www.hoteldelmano.com/) Opens in the early afternoon on weekends. Some good small plates such as sliced chorizo.
If you want a coffee, stop by Blue Bottle's industrial chic coffee roasting/cafe facility (http://www.bluebottlecoffee.net/locat...).
Lots of folks like Roebling Tea Room, but I'm not a fan.

We would like to roam around the area so any restaurant that allows for walking the streets would be great - any cuisine except sushi would be fine - will be with our daughter and boyfriend both 23 so a bit of a scene would be good and for lunch $20 maximum per person - therefore great pizza, thai, sandwich shop would be great.
