Our family business started over at Europa restaurant in Bensonhurst, Brooklyn. For over 15 years, the Alaimo family has believed that one of the best ways to experience another country's culture and traditions is through its food. Europa's customers are the top priority and they love our Pizza. We will always believe the secret to good pizza is in the dough and as such have perfected our dough recipe through years of trial and error and combined with our hand-made mozzarella, proudly prepare each pizza with the belief that ours is the best in Brooklyn. Piesmith will aim to deliver the same high quality, artisanal pizza to our neighbors who prefer their pizza in a low pressure, fast, casual environment. Piesmith's pies are assembled to order and baked in a custom built rotating oven that is always burning hot at 800 degrees. Because at Piesmith we believe, why order a pizza, when you can build one?
The location alone is a curiosity. Perched on a metal mezzanine inside Space Ninety 8—the multifloor Urban Outfitters complex in waterfront Williamsburg—the attractively industrial, albeit empty, dining room is enclosed with opaque glass paneling, offering peeks of distressed denim and faux-vintage tees between courses.
Tarlow’s new restaurant builds on everything he’s done so far, elevating all the usual Williamsburg tropes. The made-in-Brooklyn aesthetic he pioneered is much more polished in this soaring industrial space, its sepia-toned light fixtures, scuffed wooden tables and marble-topped bar all locally found or produced. The bearded barkeeps serving old-fashioned mixed drinks are more cheerful than most. And while the hyperseasonal fare celebrates nearby purveyors, there’s no indication to patrons where anything’s sourced. Reynards is the new cool kid on the block without ever trying to be, a Balthazar for Brooklyn, urbane and ambitious, mature and low-key. Its chef, Sean Rembold, of Diner and Marlow, serves casual breakfast and lunch to a drop-in crowd, including a terrifically earthy grass-fed burger. His menu, which changes often—sometimes daily—becomes much more serious at night. There’s no fanfare at any time to his spare list of dishes, no trendy buzzwords, barely any descriptions at all. Rembold’s thoughtful food, portioned to satisfy and priced to move, mostly speaks for itself.

A fun, artsy hostel located in colorful Brooklyn. This budget lodging fuses the traditional youth hostel setup (dorm-style rooms with bunk beds and lockers, communal lounging areas) with a fashionable loft aesthetic. In the former clothing warehouse, linen curtains billow in front of huge windows, and there’s plenty of industrial-chic exposed brick and piping. Above the big shared kitchen is a mezzanine equipped with a large flat-screen TV (DVDs can be rented at the front desk). The spacious patio is the site of frequent summer barbecues and there's even a hot tub deck. Unlike old-school hostels, there’s no curfew; an electronically encoded room-key card opens the front door after hours. Rooms: 150 beds in dorms; 30 private rooms.
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.

This indoor market opens daily, displaying the work of local artists, designers, and vintage dealers in an industrial warehouse space. The gathering is smaller and less congested than the indoor Young Designers Markets in Soho and Nolita, with a greater focus on accessories than apparel. Around twenty-five stations manned by the designers themselves line the perimeter of the room and fill in the coveted center space, creating narrow aisles for shoppers to browse. T-shirts and cotton dresses hang overhead, and a blaring playlist of Pitchfork favorites gives the market a youthful, social feel. Standouts include Georgia Varidakis’s vintage-inspired gold and brass jewelry, Ryan Wilde’s throwback veiled, feathered, and beaded millinery, and a notable stock of affordable vintage shoes, ranging from weathered moccasins to stilettos. Long tables in the rear are covered with heavily discounted used books, stacked spine-to-spine and spilling over onto nearby shelves. The roster of sellers often changes by the day, week, and season, so check back regularly for newcomers.

The true American lifestyle has long past- as fast food, instant gratification and a disposable products mindset has taken place. The 1940's and 1950's had a culture of people living a simple uncluttered life; with products that lasted a lifetime. Apple-pie, baseball and the open-road were all true icons of America. Genuine Motorworks wants to tap back into this time of a basic, simplistic life, one of hard work, quality and integrity. We're bringing back the American brands that thrived and had real meaning behind the label, while searching for the artisans that are producing quality products today. The products and brands we carry all have an American background with an emphasis on being made in the USA and we are dedicated to the guy who still likes to get his hands dirty.
