Restaurant Neighborhood of the Year: Williamsburg

Unlike Bloomberg, Zagat has been to actual new restaurants in the outer boroughs. They are impressed enough with Williamsburg’s latest crop (Allswell, Brooklyn Star, Cafe de la Esquina, Forcella, Isa, Mable’s, Maison Premiere, Masten Lake, Meatball Shop and Pillar & Plough) that they’ve anointed it restaurant neighborhood of the year.

(It’s nice to see that the Northside sharing in the good eats action – the Southside has been kicking its ass in that category for years now.)
