Our inspiration for Sicilian comfort food starts with my family. Growing up Sicilian is like no other experience. My parents and grandparents always had me in the kitchen helping prepare dishes for holidays and other celebrations. From a young age, I was taught the importance of sharing a meal with family. Our goal with Bella Gioia is to take my family traditions, flavors, and experiences and share them with you.
Runner & Stone was co-founded in December 2012 by Chef Chris Pizzulli and Head Baker Peter Endriss. Runner & Stone services the Gowanus neighborhood as a wholesale & retail bakery, restaurant and bar. We bake all of our bread and pastries in house, including naturally leavened breads and viennoisseries, using local whole grain flours, dairy and fruit. Our lunch consists of seasonal salads, soups and sandwiches for dine-in or take away and features house-prepared meats and fish on our signature breads. Dinner focuses on seasonal vegetables and meats and includes a full range of house-made fresh pastas. Runner & Stone also has a full bar, serving a diverse list of wines, beer and specialty cocktails. At Runner & Stone, we believe that cooking and eating are social, communal activities that connect people to one another, and that food service is not only the act of preparing and presenting ingredients for consumption, but rather one part of an experience that should make sense seasonally, geographically, environmentally and emotionally. To that end, we strive every day to create an atmosphere that is approachable and convivial, preparing everything we make – from our breads and pastries to our appetizers and entrees – with tradition, technique and expertise and featuring local ingredients that are grown, produced, packaged and transported in a responsible manner.
Inside the large, airy space – which used to be a former carriage house and now sports a minimalist look, all exposed brick and wooden beams – you’ll find a rotating menu of cocktails, which run $11 a piece and include their signature L.L.I.T. (or Lavender Lake Iced Tea), a mix of lavender-infused vodka, earl grey iced tea, lemon and simple syrup. While you sip, take advantage of their full-service kitchen, which offers dishes such as fried brussels sprouts with a lemon aioli dipping sauce and mignonette pickled oysters along with heartier fare like grilled pork chop with polenta and mustard greens. If you come on a weekend, however, exercise a little restraint when it comes to heavy eating and drinking: DJs spin Motown tracks and other classics and you may find yourself wanting to join in on an impromptu dance party inside the main room or out on the bar’s patio. Weekends are their busiest times and often see a changing of the guard – the stroller set predominates in the afternoon before making way for stylish twenty-and-thirtysomethings to take over until the wee hours of the night. summer, the light-strung, 1,600-square-foot outdoor patio hosts spit-roasts, movie screenings, and a wine-and-beer station. — Abby Schreiber

Located at the prime corner of Wythe Ave and North 10th St. in Williamsburg Brooklyn, this eight-story, 150-room brand new Hotel strikes the perfect pitch between spectacular service and style. The guest rooms are richly tiled-and-textured with authentic reclaimed materials, and the lobby bar and lounge area has a very classy-cozy feel. This mid-winter, the highly anticipated Harvey restaurant by Chef Adam Leonti will make its debut. The Williamsburg Hotel was designed by Michaelis Boyd (Soho House Berlin, Babington House UK) with a nod to the neighborhood’s industrial past by using brick, glass and Corten steel in its construction. The dramatic entrance through cascading stairs leads into a soaring bar whose art installation stops you in your tracks. Street artist Eric Rieger has strung thousands of strands of multi-colored yarn which crowns the bar. Other design highlights include custom toile-inspired wallpaper designed by Beastie Boy Mike Diamond featuring quintessential Brooklyn scenes and figures—from a Nathan’s Famous hot dog to a group of Hasidic Jewish men, to the late, great Notorious B.I.G. Guest rooms feature floor-to-ceiling sliding glass acoustic windows with Manhattan, Brooklyn and East River views, and design schemes vary from white-washed timber walls to deep grey distressed finishes with bespoke leather, brass, marble, and textured details at every turn. Rooms are thoughtfully designed with elements like a sitting table doubling as a tray for room service, open-windowed showers to create a loft-like space. Upgrades available to a room with a terrace with amazing views.
