Williamsburg Restaurants Deals in New York
It's been our belief that it's a healthy practice to mix and match your cuisines—the spice of life and all. Shoring up that belief is Fatty 'Cue in Williamsburg, the BK outpost of the Fatty Empire (there's another Fatty 'Cue and a Fatty Crab are in the West Village). The concept for the BBQ joint started as an experiment when Chef Zak Pelaccio and the "fatty crew," as they're known, collaborated with an ex-pitmaster at Hill Country to blend the salty, smoky intensity of traditional BBQ with the spice of Southeast Asian cuisine. Clearly, it was a success because, boom! A menu was born. The Brooklyn space, sitting just below the Williamsburg Bridge, stays true to the neighbohood's come-as-you-are attitude with two levels of dining for optimal meat consumption. The bar up front encourages PBRs and pickle back shots, as well as sharing small plates, like fermented pork riblets, Nasi Ulam (turmeric scented rice salad, dried shrimp and herbs) or a Bowl O Noodles (ramen, meat juices and "hot lovin'"), with your friends. Wander back to the upstairs dining room and get ready to feast on maple-glazed pork shoulder with fresh roti, chili sauce and fried curry leaf; beef brisket with rhubarb kimchee and steamed bao; and for the truly adventurous, half a pig's head, served on a platter with spring onion salad, pickles and steamed boa. If you pick up a whiff of sweet smoking meat throughout the entire joint, it's because the pitmasters smoke all their meats on-site here for both 'Cue locations—a good practice when it comes to quality control. And... needing to smoke half a pig's head.

What happens when a mother-daughter team from Maui opens up an ice cream joint in Williamsburg? A whole lot of frozen treat wizardry, that's what. This family duo is dreaming up the kind of combos our collective sweet-tooth lusts after. Try out these three devious concoctions for size: wine-infused ice cream, donut sundaes, and giant ice cream sandwiches. Trust the eyeballs that read those correctly, this is the real deal, folks. On top of a rolling selection of non-alcoholic flavors, the wine-infused ice cream is a true treat. Bust out the ID for a chance to try a scoop of the Chocolate Cabernet or the Red-raspberry Chardonnay. (These guys ring in at about 5 percent alcohol by volume.) The donut sundaes and ice cream sandwiches feel like a childhood sugar-high dream. The sandwiches are a sweet meeting of two large chocolate chip cookies with a filling of two generous scoops. The mountainous sundaes are made with Dough donuts stacked high with the ice cream of your choosing. Drizzle it with some caramel syrup for a treat that mom and dad would not have allowed anywhere near our drooling mouths. Come to think of it, maybe we owe them a pint or two of that Cherry Merlot. Menu Highlights: Wine-infused Ice Cream, $4.99 single / $6.96 double / $10.29 pint Donut Sundae, $6.50 Giant Chocolate Chip Cookie Ice Cream Sandwich, $6.80 Hot Chocolate Ice Cream Float, $4.50 Frozen Yogurt, $3.75 single / $4.75 double / $5.95 pint Hours: Monday - Thursday, 1 p.m. to 11 p.m. Friday, 1 p.m. to 1 a.m. Saturday, 11 a.m. to 1 a.m. Sunday, noon to 11 p.m.
