Parish Hall opened last year, the sister restaurant to brunch-all-the-time Williamsburg mainstay Egg. As its menu is full of snacks, small plates, and salads, I stopped by to see how a diner would fare bypassing the entrées and sticking to a meal of smaller bites.

Parish Hall is the serene counterpoint to Williamsburg brunch hotspot Egg. There is an enticing array of salads on the menu, but also a serious selection of sandwiches to rival it.
If you know George Weld and chef Evan Hanczor from their first Williamsburg restaurant, Egg—a place well-known for their fried chicken, where the brunch menu boasts biscuits and grits—you might be surprised to find their second, Parish Hall, taking a slightly different tack. But despite its Southern bent, Egg has long made a point of its reliance on New York produce, from the team's own Goatfell Farm upstate. That's the most evident common thread with Parish Hall, which chef Hanczor calls "the cuisine of the Northeast, based on the landscape."
