I love the independent businesses in New York, they are the heart and soul of the city! In this section you will find bookstores, cafés, restaurants, arts & crafts markets and more. It's an ongoing project to list the best of indie New York so visit often to discover the real New York City. Experience the hidden gems and places that New Yorkers frequent. Note - I am not compensated for writing these reviews and I'm only writing about the places that I like. 


Sweet Chick, Williamsburg, Brooklyn

Sweet Chick is a soul food restaurant and they are really busy on the weekends for brunch! What is soul food? It's Southern style cuisine that includes macaroni and cheese, crab cakes, waffles and chicken, collard greens and cornbread to name a few items.

I had a fabulous meal there. The decor is rustic and the atmosphere is very lively. Sweet Chick also has a few other locations in the city. If you're in the mood for comfort food and you're in Williamsburg this is the place to go!
