11211 Love

El Almacen via NYMag.com

File El Almacen under places to eat in Williamsburg. This is our failsafe local. We're there in three minutes flat.

I order the aji relleno or the milanesa de pollo and Will goes for a steak and red wine.

Tonight, the guys next to us had a gorgeous, envy-inducing plank of charcuterie and cheese to share and were talking about their independent film in indeterminate accents. It didn't seem at all hokey. You hear a lot of indeterminate accents here. The lighting is great and everyone looks quite dashing.

In the summer, there's a little back garden, its trees strung with lights.

People sometimes ask me for my favorite place in the neighborhood. I often feel like I should say something more exotic, as there are now plenty of very serious foodie joints around these parts. But for a chill South American ambiance, servers who leave you alone (in a nice way), and tasty, not-at-all-precious food, this is always my top pick.
