Staff Recommendation: Naive

If you’re like us, you like to dine out and enjoy everything this gastronomic city has to offer. New York City is abuzz with tourists and locals alike, as summer is a perfect time to discover your go-to happy hour bar or cozy restaurant for a dinner date.

At Commune, we have no shortage of clients telling us their recent food outing or asking us for local recommendations. While we have our share of neighborhood favorites, we also love to venture and experience new places in the area. Here’s the latest restaurant on Commune’s approval list!

Naïve (299 South 4th Street)

After your next hair appointment, take South 4th and head east over the Brooklyn Queens Expressway. On the corner of Rodney Street, an open window bar welcomes you like a city oasis.

Lined with dreamy white curtains, we couldn’t ask for a better time for a new tapas place in Williamsburg. Naïve is a midsummer treat for a juicy sangria and Iberico cured jamon (meat lovers will rejoice!). Our staff had a wonderful night out in the back room seating, the space alit with eclectic chandelier light and grinning moon décor.

The service was especially kind and courteous (thanks for taking our group photos!) and we loved the intimate atmosphere.

We particularly enjoyed:

- Cinco Jotas Jamon Iberico De Bellota
- Crispy Chorizo with shallots in red wine
- Gorgonzola, fig puree, prosciutto tartine
- Summer Sangria

Be sure to check it out next time you're in the neighborhood!
