Front Entrance EQUALS pig with a cut out heart through it…how compelling of a story. I love pig. Pig loves me. Who knew we were going to eat the hell out of pork that night…! I did my homework kids. This has been on the list of bookmarks since I want on a loony bin frantic about not getting enough of my offal fix…. (Thanks Del). But really, what we literally ordered was a boat load of pork… and that divine sweetbread. Now I’ve got everybody hooked. This place is charming… yet misleading. There is an “outdoor patio” area but it’s closed off… The best view you will see is a brick wall and some grass/greenery. Not literally an outdoor patio………but still tucked in and intimately charming. We didn’t mind.
To Prix-fixe or not to prix-fixe…that was the question to the beginning ending of our night. Sorry, but as I have mentioned before… I did my homework and my ‘mind’ was already pre-set and predetermined to order exactly what I/we wanted. Since the waitress recommended 8-10 dishes total, we each got to pick 2…with me “finalizing” our ridiculous list. Some dishes were vetted out..and some were vetted in. In the end, teamwork was a success because we were blessed with an incredible, beautiful meal, for dirt cheap … like you couldn’t believe. Also, my first experience with a Rose that came from Austria…. VERY tasty. I’m straying away from the norm and I kinda like it!
a medley of a fig salad with tons candied walnuts & cheese… great way to start the meal.
Pork belly…. with corn, tomatoes & peas. Flavorful, a bit on the fatty side…but like I said…flavorful. Not a fan of peas, so didn’t really understand it…but loved the touch of corn.
chicken liver mousse. Rich, delectable, bits of actual liver pieces on top of toast dressed in balsamic. We liked this very much.
Foie gras terrine style. with tons of berries… a bit of sweet & savory. Definitely need toast for this even extra richness.
Tuna Tartare atop tempura eggplant. There is a lot going on here…. Good, but not as good as the other dishes we ordered.
Strawberry cinnamon glazed pork ribs. Looking amazing doesn’t it? It was good…but I think we all expected it to fall more off the bone? According to my friend at least. I’m not an expert on ribs or anything, but I think the meat could have been juicier…. BUT the glaze was sweet & fantastic. Just a bit underwhelming.
Risottow/ mushrooms, corn & peas… oh didn’t we see this combination before? Risotto was cooked just right… not too hard and overall, very creamy.

Bacon donuts. Enough said. Enough said…
Traif is the place to go for all things meaty (their specialty is pork after all), simple & clean flavors…. and small & big plates can be found, which makes family style that much more fun. Prices are super reasonable (ok, I’m from Manhattan, I’ll be honest, it seemed dirt cheap to me!). And we all agreed how much we enjoyed our meal and how absolutely the trip out to Williamsburg was TOTALLY worth this restaurant. It’s quirky, fun and quickly holds a special warm spot in my heart … keep it up!
