I was taken to dinner by my son to Traif. We had the chef's tasting meal with wine pairings. We ate in the back in their garden area. It was a good choice. A large fan kept the air circulating. The meal started with a...More

This rather pedestrian (from outside) storefront restaurant serves up really great and unusual contemporary shared plates/tapas with a good cocktail, beer and wine list. It has a covered patio at the back. We went for the $55 chef's menu and ended up eating a lot...More

This restaurant is my all time favorite to dine at. I was introduced to it in September and have gone back multiple times since. Not only is literally everything on the menu amazing, but their tasting menu is a deal you cannot beat. 10 courses...More

One of best dinners I've had. We did the tasting menu; everything was incredibly good or better. Outstanding service. Not cheap, but worth every penny. Reservations a must, it seems.

First thing to know- don't bring your friends with Kosher diets here. "Traif" is the Yiddish word for non-kosher- and with a pork/seafood heavy menu... this place is anything but. (Although it is located in an area of Williamsburg heavily populated with Hasidic Jews.) We've...More

We called Traif several times to try and prepare for our group dinner to celebrate a friend about to have breast cancer surgery. It took a few days to even receive a call back. We were first told we were not allowed to sit in...More

Been here several times. Consistently excellent. The flavors created by chief Jason Marcus are fresh, different and dare I say sophisticated. The flavors combos are different then anything I've ever encountered- in a good way. Tuna Shashimi on Japanese eggplant, peach and almond salad with...More

A truly hidden gem in Williamsburg! From the moment we stepped through the unassuming storefront our experience was nothing short of amazing! The friendly hostess guided us to a seat at the bar. The chefs are cooking right in front of you as you sit...More
