As we all know, Brooklyn has really blown up over the last couple of years. Highrises going up all the time as well as cool and trendy shops popping up all over the place. Williamsburg and it’s sought after real estate is old news. The original fabric has pretty much dissipated in Brooklyn, except for a certain demographic that continues to profit off the “Brooklyn Boom”. At one time Williamsburg was pretty much known for the “Peter Luger” steak house and that was it. I can remember getting off the train and making run for it. However, in the same neighborhood, there’s another restaurant that has stood the test of time as well.
Frost is a neighborhood Italian restaurant that all of the natives know. It’s hard to believe that there is still a neighborhood restaurant in Brooklyn. The fact that it’s been around since 1959 is a pretty good determinant. It’s a family-style restaurant which is a concept that escapes most eateries in the 5 boroughs today. Whether it’s the first time you’re walking in or you’re a longtime customer, the family atmosphere attaches itself to you.
As my readers know, I’m a big fan of Fettuccini Alfredo. I use that dish as my deciding factor when it comes to trying out new Italian Restaurants. However, all the menu items at Frost are delicious. For my appetizer, I had the Portobello Mushroom, which was cooked to absolute perfection. My entree was Frost’s “homemade stuffed shells”. Frost also makes their own pasta on a lot of their signature dishes. Service is another influencer when it comes to my dining experience and Frost never disappoints.
For a true Italian Neighborhood dining experience, Frost is where you want to be. Named after the street it’s on, you can pretty much ask anyone in the Williamsburg area where it’s at. However, with the rapid changes happening in Brooklyn, especially in Williamsburg you better call or Google for directions.
