Depending on what days you will be here you shouldn't miss smorgasburg in Williamsburg. They have gone indoors for the winter and I believe its on Sundays at the Brooklyn Brewery,

It looks like this time around we'll be there from Dec 21-23 (Wed-Frid). If we're back on a weekend or Summer months, we'll definitely look into Smorgasburg!

"Eatly" is a great place to sample and shop. The FoodOnFoot tours..take at the beginning of your trip...Corey makes great neighborhood restaurant recommendations.

Eataly is worth a trip, Chelsea Market is sort of fun [definitely touristy] - but there's also a market happening in Chelsea Mkt the next few weeks that has nice goods and stuff so it's a good mix of food and shopping.

But talking actually about Brooklyn! Dekalb Market in downtown BK has my most favorite cupcakes [Robiceli's] and a lot of other yummy food along with small shops. It's outdoors and made of shipping containers.

Red Hook is delish, but a trek! BAKED is an awesome bakery. Fort Defiance has good drinks and nibbles. Good Fork has good dumplings. Lobster is out there too, along with key lime pies.

Pizza at DiFara's, too!

Further advice is based on if you're looking for more casual eating or fancy eating. And where you're staying/how far you're willing to travel.
