Our Favorite Noods Plus Awesome Booze in Williamsburg
Upgrade from cheap ramen to insanely good udon at hanon. This restaurant is run by eccentric owners—they respectively run production and condom companies back in Japan—but absolutely nails this classic noodle dish that’s thicc. The space is bright and minimalist by day and dark and romantic by night, with over twenty varieties of udon for you and your person to slurp up.
For drinks and a good time, walk over to Crystal Lake Brooklyn. This homey bar promises efficient and friendly service every time. Walk beyond the antique bar, booze in hand, to find a back room where a screening, comedy, burlesque or art show might be taking place. They have a decent selection of beer but the spicy margarita or boozy lemonade come highly recommended.
