Concierge.com's insider take:
Marlow & Sons was one of the first hipster restaurants in Brooklyn to take the seasonal movement to the masses (at least those prepared to trek to this industrial part of Williamsburg) when it opened in 2004. The menu dutifully changes with the turn of the seasons, but standards are the brick chicken (a deboned half chicken that has been mashed down with a piece of salvaged metal) and a pulled pork sandwich dripping with vinegary barbecue sauce. The raw bar overflows with the best oysters the East Coast has to offer. Score a table out on the sidewalk—all the better for observing the tragically hip. The general store up front sells a small selection of veggies as well as locally made sweets and sodas, and the nose-to-tail philosophy continues at the affiliated Marlow & Daughters butcher shop down the street, where you can even pick up bags made from the hides of the butchered animals.—Danielle Contray
