I met my friend Paul eight years ago while we were both working as editors at the same home decor magazine. But little did I know that he and I would become really close friends throughout the years and that he would eventually invest in, and help open a very cool restaurant in Williamsburg…Enter the new spot, MID|NIGHTS! Located on North 6th street in Brooklyn, right off Bedford Ave, it’s one block from the L train, making it super convenient to get to whether you live in the neighborhood or not. It’s the perfect mix between a hip dinner spot with a fun late night scene and DJ who spins on the weekends, and a bustling brunch and after work happy hour spot, boasting a lovely patio perfect for sipping sparkling rosé. You can check out the menu here and see more photos of the space here!
I first visited the restaurant on Friends & Family night to celebrate the opening, but knew I wanted to go back to see everything in the light of day and enjoy the pretty outdoor space. I brought Krystal with me to check things out and we had an amazing time relaxing in the shade, sipping on rosé and eating our body weight in the all the food that Paul ordered for us to try.Chef Marcellus Coleman, who is a former Chopped winner and Eleven Madison Park alum, spoiled us a ton of yummy things off the menu, including an excellent quinoa burger, chilled oysters, curried mussels and grilled flatbread, to name a few. And that was just the food! The cocktails are super tasty and inventive, and besides the chilled rosé that we had accompanying our meal, we also sampled a few drinks that the bartender whipped up for us. My favorite was the “Lime All The Time” which is made with tequila, and the Bill Murray, which is made with white rum. Both were equally refreshing! I plan to revisit very soon and when I do, I can’t wait to try the crab stuffed beignets, blistered shishito peppers and dirty fried rice. YUM! Congrats Paul, Devin and Raffaello to the beginning of an amazing new chapter! xoxo
P.S. In case you were wondering, this is called a “Giant Julep In A Giant Cup.” Very fitting, no?
