Amazing amazing amazing – You know a restaurant is good when you have been there 10+ times and you have never left a single piece of food on any plate. Yes it is that good. Get there asap. Dinner is amazing and so is brunch, even though they need a few new menu items IMO. Make movesssss

Citysearch Editorial Review – Bacon. Lobster. Flat iron steak served with king crab béarnaise with potato latkes. Run by a Jewish chef, and named after the Yiddish term for unkosher foods, Traif and its edible blasphemy are an outrage for the local Hasidic community and an outrageously delicious addition to the Williamsburg restaurant scene. The space is basic with a smattering of tables and a counter/bar overlooking the open kitchen; the food, however, is anything but. The menu reads like the cravings of a stoner with very sophisticated tastes--"Dude, what if we took foie gras, added ham, an egg, yams, maple gastrique and drizzled it with hot sauce?!"--though it's actually a verboten love letter to all things traif by a very clear-eyed and talented young chef, Jason Marcus.
