A recently opened gastropub with a back patio, Normans specializes in grilled cheese and has over 220 whiskeys to choose from. A nice spot to sit at and actually be able to chat. Williamsburg is kinda sorta growing up.

Historical fun fact: Drick the Norman was a scandinavian sailor who managed to get himself a patent in 1645 that established him as the owner of all Greenpoint. He built the first house there a year later on what is known today as Calyer St. near Franklin St. right in front of a creek known then as Norman’s kill, which separated Williamsburg from Greenpoint and was later renamed Bushwick Creek.
