Having been a resident of Williamsburg for nearly 2 years and tried nearly everything around, Traif is my favorite place here, if not in all of NYC.
The place serves mostly small dishes, it is great for small groups so you can try a variety of dishes. The dishes are all individually unique with flavor combinations you have perhaps never dreamed up of. My favorite was the bacon covered dates which in and of itself was not unique to trait, but was spectacularly done.
Highly recommended - promise you will not be disappointed.

Of all the places where our Brooklynite son took us for dinner, this was the best. Similar to tapas, the dishes are excellent and designed to be shared. Traif is opposite of Kosher, so expect a lot of pork.

Just had dinner with friends. A foodie's dream. Every dish was interesting and flavorful. Prices relatively inexpensive. Service attentive. Portions a little small but that was fine. Must have a reservation on a Saturday night. We all loved it.

I was in Brooklyn on my own for dinner on Friday night and Yelp suggested Traif. I was sat at the bar, but next to a rather large fellow who was taking up several spaces. The hostess noticed my discomfort and came and asked if I'd like to sit next to the kitchen, which turned out to be wonderful. The executive chef was managing the whole production of a very competent staff. It was great entertainment to see the speed, efficiency, and accuracy of the operation. I ordered the pork sliders with sweet potato fries. Sliders came on perfectly light rolls and were spiced beautifully. The sweet potato fries were crisp and not over-salted. Next time I'll have the scallops which were also beautifully executed.
