One of our favorite local bars. Plus they serve a great brunch and dinner. We had our misgivings since, well Enids is more of a bar than a restaurant, but surprisingly the food is great! One of the best — and crowded — brunches in the neighborhood.

When you think of Williamsburg–painters in splattered jeans, indie-rock kids, lots of Herzog fans–you’re basically thinking of Enid’s. Though it’s technically in an area that bleeds over into Greenpoint, this neighborhood bar plays home to all the characters who make Williamsburg so downright hip. Leavened with drinkers who are cool on the inside, it’s a comfortable stop for all. Enid’s is exceptionally large for a New York bar. On weeknights, there’s plenty of room to wiggle around; on weekends the crowd will keep your wiggling to a minimum. The flea-market couches and scattered tables and chairs make up the understated decor, though a big wall-hanging camel made out of gold sequins adds flair. Also check out the consistently bumping pinball machine and even a bowling game. Drink-wise, Enid’s keeps it simple, with an adequate stock of liquors at fair neighborhood-bar prices.
