Infatuation is infatuated with Lighthouse
You want to be at Lighthouse because the food is absolutely excellent. It’s the kind of fresh, sort of healthy stuff you’ve seen around town: grilled vegetables, ceviche, octopus, chicken – but done much, much better than usual. There’s even a destination-worthy burger.
Lighthouse isn’t just another Williamsburg spot that uses “local” ingredients, has an oyster happy hour, and serves “interesting” wines. Lighthouse does all those things – but does them with real intensity. Their ingredients aren’t just fresh – there’s apparently a guy named Carlos who brings Lighthouse its chickens straight off a farm every two days. Their happy hour isn’t just a good deal – the wine glasses on special are from whatever bottle happens to be open, giving you a chance to try stuff you otherwise might not. And unlike a lot of casual-seeming places with not very casual prices, everything at Lighthouse is actually affordable. Lighthouse doesn’t just talk the talk. It walks it, too.
If you don’t live in the neighborhood, you might not think to trek to Williamsburg on your usual weeknight for chicken, or a burger, or grilled vegetables. But this restaurant is a reason to reconsider.
Lighthouse doesn’t settle, and neither should you.
