Eye On Real Estate: Ten Coolest Places In East Williamsburg
By Lore Croghan

The coolest lunch and dinner place in East Williamsburg is Grand Morelos, the Mexican restaurant at 727 Grand St.
The place is old-school, with red-leather booths, and it's open 24-7. Everybody speaks Spanish, but they're nice to you if you don't. The chile relleno, which is a green pepper filled stretchy cheese and served with sides of beans and rice, is muy sabroso.
The runner-up is Italian restaurant and cafe Amici, which opened at 622 Metropolitan Ave. in November. The chef hand-makes tomato and ricotta ravioli with butter and sage sauce. It's addictive.
