I initially had just an OK experience at Dumont and was surprised at all the nice reviews. But as it turns out, they were short-staffed and my experience seemed to be the exception, not the rule. I plan to give them another shot--I hear

I came here for brunch one lazy sunday with a group of friends and the service was fairly decent. The brunch drinks are really delicious & I recommend the lemonade if you are in the mood to stay lazy. The food was decent but the atmosphere made up for it and the portion was more than plenty to fill me up.

This mid-range restaurant right off of the Lorimer stop on the L is easy to pass by, and the restaurant likes it that way. They don't take reservations, and they don't put too much into their outside appearence, saving it all for the inside. The food is delicious. I myself had the grilled hanger steak ($15), cooked to perfection. Their signature meal, however, is the DuMac and Cheese ($9). Fresh cheese and pasta make this much better than your average Kraft meal. Their waitstaff is friendly and the wine list is excellent. They can get a little busy on the weekends, but they will serve you dinner at the bar if all the tables are full. A back patio is hidden down a winding corridor, which makes for a great romantic atmosphere.

Along with Diner, DuMont was one of the first Williamsburg restaurants to cater to hipsters with a discerning palate. With a focus on hungry-man items, this restaurant doesn't push the envelope too far. The burger, on a brioche bun, is…
