It sounds like the beginning of a bad Jeff Foxworthy bit: What do you get when you put three handsome Southern boys in an old trailer home on a dirty corner lot?
But Goods, a Williamsburg restaurant where all the food is prepared in a shiny, refurbished 1946 Spartan trailer, is no joke (and the 3rd Ward guys behind it are mighty clever). Chef Alex McCrery, the star of our video, turns out tasty, south of the M-D line fare that’s almost all locally sourced or made in-house.
Starting today, he’s serving breakfast (egg, bacon, and cheese biscuits; beignets) and lunch/dinner (hot dogs, burgers, fish and chips) from the window. Ten days from now, you’ll be able to eat in the adjacent garden, a complete overhaul of the lot that’s been vacant for years.
And with everything priced at less than $11, we predict it will become your go-to in B’burg. That is, if you’re smarter than a fifth grader.
Goods, 571 Lorimer Street, at Metropolitan Avenue, Williamsburg (347-763-1622 or goodsfood.com).

Because even if you want to be a hot mess, your hair doesn’t have to be.
At your last mealtime gathering, you did everything right: big, pricey steaks; fancy-schmancy china; stimulating conversation cards (what’s your animal soul mate?!).
No wonder the whole thing was so awkward.
Next time, take a cue from Tamara Reynolds and Zora O’Neill, the hilarious Astoria-based hostesses with the mostest behind Forking Fantastic: Put the Party Back in Dinner Party.
