Greetings, Brooklyners!

I'm new to Williamsburg and a friend suggested I try out Chowhoubd to find out more about the options in the neighborhood. What do you recommend?

    Williamsburg is a decent neighborhood for food: lots of above-average spots, but only a few really outstanding places. It's good to have a nice variety within walking/ordering distance, but for some cuisines (see starred categories), you'll really need to venture elsewhere to find superior food.

    Australian: Five Leaves
