A year and a half into the coronavirus pandemic, restaurants across the city continue to open their doors, sometimes because their concepts could be adapted for takeout and delivery, but more often because their owners saw no other choice but to forge ahead. Since March 16, 2020, when the state first temporarily closed indoor dining, hundreds of new restaurants have opened, including those that serve dinner party essentials, dressed-up pad Thai, two-for-one drink specials, and housemade English muffins.
Williamsburg: Four of the city’s leading food trends have joined forces at Afternoon, a multi-restaurant restaurant that’s chosen Williamsburg for its first Brooklyn location. From touch-screen kiosks, customers can order Korean corn dogs from Jongro Rice Hotdog, egg sandwiches from Egglab, mochi doughnuts from Mochi Mochi Donut, and several flavors of the Flushing-famous croffle from Croffle Haus. Two additional locations of the restaurant are planned for Flushing, at 136-95 Roosevelt Avenue, and the East Village, at 34 Saint Mark’s Place, in October. 148 North Seventh Street, between Bedford Avenue and Berry Street
