For weeks we have been trying to grab a bite at St. Anselm’s in Williamsburg but have been unsuccessful, and now we know why! This gem located right on Metropolitan Avenue has the taste of a steakhouse, but the feel of casual dining. It is known for its rib eye that is anywhere from 35-70 ounces and can easily feed 2 or 3 people, however; there are also delicious lamb, chicken or pork dishes if you are not in the mood for beef.
Not a meat lover? Not a problem! There are a decent amount of fish dishes for the seafood lovers. Owner Joe Carroll has pieced together a wine list that rivals the best in the city and will help in setting the mood. Next time you’re in the neighborhood be sure to stop by, start yourself off with a nice wine, a couple of the splendid appetizers like the grilled octopus or eggplant platter, share a rib eye or entrée of your choice, order some vegetables and sides like sautéed rants and Pan-Fried Mashed Potatoes & Truffle Oil , and go home feeling satisfied. There tends to be a decent wait (no surprise there!) so feel free to wait at Carroll’s Spuyten Duyvil next door and enjoy a nice, cold brew in the meantime. Enjoy!
