After Lilia opened, in 2016, it came to be known as “the most grown up restaurant in Williamsburg.” The verdict on the maturity scale came from Chris Stang, writing on his site The Infatuation. “The space- once an auto body shop – is huge and impressive and upscale yet comfortable,” he continued. “The food is grown up too. In the kitchen is Missy Robbins, who you might either know from her previous restaurant, A Voce, or from the time that you read somewhere that she’s Obama’s favorite chef. The menu is Italian in nature, full of pastas and vegetables and seafood dishes that are very good and also very professionally executed. Put it all together and what you end up with is a destination restaurant.” Now I know where I’m headed next, as soon as I get a handle on all my grown-up responsibilities. I wonder if they take reservations for 2037? (567 Union Ave., at North 10 St., Brooklyn 718-576-3095)
