Friday night birthday dinner in Williamsburg/ Greenpoint

catrae Mar 14, 2012 04:03 AM

Hello Chowhound!

Friday is my birthday and I am looking for suggestions for a delicious meal for two in Williamsburg or Greenpoint. Some of my favorite spots (that I can think of quickly) are Five Leaves, Paulie Gees, Fatty Cue, Marlow and Sons, Samurai Mama. I would like to try a new place, but would like suggestions to hopefully avoid a disappointing meal or experience. Any good spots we could try? I am open to any cuisine but would like the quality to be high and atmosphere to comfortable and beautiful.

          +1 for Dressler. Perfect for a birthday (for 2?).
