Though located in Williamsburg, Battery Harris takes its name from the World War I–era bunkers on Fort Tilden in the Rockaways. The beachy décor covers the impressive outdoor seating area, with canopies, beach chairs, and picnic tables to boot. The Caribbean-inspired food menu is small but spicy—jerk spices are cooked into many of dishes. Start off with the baked patties: There’s a selection of three, but you’ll find that the most flavor is found within the juicy—and yes, spicy—beef option. The plates are small but full of food, either chicken or tofu with jerk or BBQ toppings, but the taste is only average. The sandwiches fare slightly better, like a solid burger with generous toppings. Drinks come first at this self-described “craft beer and cocktail bar”: There are twenty beers on tap, a solid selection of spirits, and a number of house cocktails listed on the menu under a note that the special drinks require extra time to create. They are well worth the wait—the spicy, tangy standout Desert Heat combines blanco tequila, lime, agave nectar, and passionfruit and is topped off with a slice of a jalapeño. Make this location more of a stop for drinks than food—the requisite Macbook-and-headphones-powered D.J. isn’t in the back for nothin’.
