Peter’s Since 1969 Homestyle Rotisserie Chicken Beef Stew Roasted Pork – Williamsburg Brooklyn NY
168 Bedford Avenue, Williamsburg, Brooklyn
It’s official. The holiday season is over. Today I saw a crew outside the UBS building on 6th Avenue dismantling the giant nutcracker doll decorations (btw Katie and Faye, I still haven’t seen the Rockefeller xmas tree yet! ha!). It’s also quite cold outside. Missing that warm Thanksgiving dinner? Well, I think I found a solution to hold you over, and um no it isn’t f’n Boston Market.
Last night I went out with my friend Richard for a drink in Williamsburg and we stopped into Peter’s Since 1969 on Bedford ave for a quick meal. We were mostly drawn by the massive rotisserie chicken oven behind the counter and the armada of red Le Creuset casseroles filled to the brim with every imaginable Thanksgiving side you’d wish including mashed potatoes, mashed yams, stewed spinach, sautéed corn, green beans, chopped spinach en casserole, mac and cheese, yellowish stewed okra, bread-crumbed cauliflower, etc. I got the roast pork (pork = new vegetable) with sides of mashed potatoes with gravy and green beans for just $12. Each entree comes with 2 sides. It was a massive plate by the way and definitely the way to go on a cold Jan night.
A little background for you Williamsburg Brooklyn fans – This restaurant has been around since 2004 not 1969. The 1969 refers to the original butcher shop which explains the gleaming white tiles and the stainless steel hooks on the walls. Peter was one of 2 competing butchers on the block and alas hung himself with an apron. Not sure if it was on the premises but he’s immortalized in a framed photo that hangs in the restaurant.
I thought the food at Peters was pretty simple, but amazing just the same. It’s an especially good choice if you have a large party since you can pick and choose your dishes/sides and eat family style. In the summertime you can bask out in the garden space in the back (can’t wait for that). Enjoy!
