A hipster Saturday in Williamsburg from the famous gastro duo Ferma & Williamsburg: Bloody Mary for breakfast, a flea and ecomarket, the best oysters and a baptist church.
Great hipster dining experience. The menu changes weekly and is mostly about meat, sorry, vegetarians. Watch out – it's written on the table. Try their burgers and cocktails – the best in Brooklyn. However, be ready for some queuing before you get a table as the place is really trendy.
Have a free Saturday in Brooklyn? Head to Brooklyn Flea – a huge outdoor market with rare finds for your interior – furniture, art and lots of vintage stuff. If you have no plans to open a bar or don't fancy a ride with a mid-century chair back home just stroll around and enjoy the waterfront view. The entry is free and wares averagely cost between 9 and 15 dollars.
Emmanuel Baptist Church
It's a great chance to listen to authentic gospels and chant Hallelujah with the local flock. People are nice and hospitable so don't fear to interfere. If you're still hesitant to go inside, sit by the building and just watch – the scene is quite curious.
Smorgasburg Food Market
Don't eat for at least day before going there! Smorgasburg is the yummiest NYC spot – some fifty top vendors create their food miracles at this outdoor market. The stew smell is driving you crazy while Jamaican vendors open coconuts with a machete and Japanese chefs are making ramen burgers. Don't even dream of tasting everything – by the end of the day you'll be really full! The location is great, the place is children and pet -friendly and pretty relaxed. A must-go for a Saturday.
This Williamsburg bar has the funky old-school vibe of the 20s hotel. But forget about Prohibition – the place is all about drinking. They have an extensive wine list and amazing cocktails – a perfect starter of the night.
Mostly all NYC have oysters on the menu – shipped from the coast or New Orleans. But Maison Premiere is special – it offers a selection of 19 different kinds of oysters for $1 each. The best time to visit is 4 pm to avoid crowds, otherwise you'll be stuck in a line for at least an hour – the place has no reservations. If you are not an oyster fan, pop in for a cocktail and an awesome cheese plate.
