The Daily Shortlist June 24
Celebrating the music and art made in Williamsburg and Greenpoint, the Northside Festival runs June 24-27 with bands playing a variety of venues. Check out this show at Cameo Gallery hosted by Ernest Jenning Record Co. and featuring La Strada, Takka Takka, Blood Warrior, Chris Mills, and Charles Burst. Just as much fun as any show, SEA is one BIG Thai restaurant. Big enough to have a pool surrounded by tables as a giant Buddha stands above it. Luckily, the food is really great. Offering traditional Pad Thai ($7) to more involved dishes like the Mummy Fish ($14). On N6th, a street full of bars and restaurants, Zablozki’s is the local bar of the bunch, with a pool table and a friendly atmosphere and 12 beers on tap. A modern Japanese brasserie, Zenkichi boasts a gorgeous wood interior and a menu that features affordable and traditional Japanese fare like the Grilled Saikyo Black Cod ($16.50) that is out of this world.
