New York

Both food and atmosphere at this Williamsburg joint are Southern-inspired, which means a simple, comfort-informed atmosphere with elevated comfort food-fare. Between the line for seating and the cooking time post-order, it'll take 45-plus minutes to get that brioche French toast, stewed tomatoes, or famous Eggs Rothko (Grafton cheddar-topped egg-in-a-hole) in your belly, but at least you can pass the seated portion doodling with crayons on the waxed paper tablecloths.
