Two SF hounds coming to NY and hoping to branch out a bit. We are regular (now every 6 months) visitors and always include Al di La in our plans. We are thinking of trying The Dressler. Has anyone been there of late and how was it?
its a solid bistro in the area but i wouldnt characterize it as a destination place.
in williamsburg, i like traif quite a bit. see if you can make reservations in advance. i think they take reservations for all party sizes.
if i can steer you to one restaurant in brooklyn, its vinegar hill house...
