Ever since the weather became warmer out here on the west coast, Williamsburg Brooklyn, or how some locals might call it Willyburg offers great casual, high end, or international dining options. The Haus team found it within their stomachs to try out some of the most talked about places to give you our top three spots at the moment. We still have a lot to try and explore but until then we are confident that you will enjoy these great summer spots.
Miss Favela – 57 S 5th St, Brooklyn, NY 11249
A typical Brazilian Botequim, Miss Favela offers a vast variety of tasty Brazilian dishes for you to try. We went for the typical and authentic Pao de Queijo (cheese bread) to start, Bife Acebolado (Steak with onions) for the main course, and Brigadeiro (Chocolate fudge) for dessert all paired with caipirinhas. The staff was extremely friendly and the food was delicious. Going there on a week night is a very different experience than the Miss Favela experience on the weekends. On weekends they have a Samba Saturday party and Forro Sunday party where they have live music and dancing. Also with the World Cup approaching quickly Miss Favela is excited to show the games as well as celebrate any wins. MissFavela.com
Cafe Mogador- 133 Wythe Ave Brooklyn, NY
Traveling to the other side of the world in cuisine is Cafe Mogador offers great Moroccan and Mediterranean dishes. This is their second location with their first being on St Marks in Manhattan. After all the raving Yelp reviews we had to try it out. We ordered the PEI mussels and hummus to start, and a chicken couscous as well as a vegetable tagine dish as the main course. We also tried both the hot tea and cold tea options. Everything was very flavorful fresh. The bread came out hot and the dishes were spiced perfectly. Nothing was overly spicy or overly priced.

Radegast Hall & Biergarten– 113 N 3rd St Brooklyn, NY 11249
The Haus team decided to avoid the memorial day traffic towards the beach and spent the day in Williamsburg at the Radegast Biergarten. All we took with us is a deck of cards and the phone app Heads Up and we were able to spend over 4 hours there drinking and eating. The friendly waitress had us tasting different beers till we go served the liter of our choice, after choosing our beers we walked over to the grill to place our orders. They had a large variety of sausages and sandwiches to choose from, the table ended up going with one lamb sausage, one venison, and one pork/beef mix. Everyday the biegarten offers live music and dancing; on Tuesdays beer tastings, and Thursday $5 half liter daily beer specials. RadegastHall.com
