Sign up for the Tasting Menu at Fabbrica
Just a year into its lifespan, Fabbrica is already one of Williamsburg’s most reliable restaurants (their cavernous space and proximity to the ferry dock don’t hurt), but now they’ve got an added draw in the form of a new Chef’s Table program. Beginning on April 1st, renowned chef (and Chopped winner) Jennifer Cole-Ruiz will put together a seasonal five-course Italian meal for 14 people (reservations are first-come, first-served) once every two weeks. The food’s fantastic, of course—a recent launch version included the most delicate gnudi we’ve ever had anywhere—and also more affordable than a lot of its competitors, running for $55 a head (you can also pay an additional $45 for wine pairings). Another reason to go? The restaurant’s enormous floor-to-ceiling windows, which act as a nice pre-cursor to when it’ll be nice enough to eat outside-outside. Soon enough.
