We had booked a few weeks ahead, which looked to be a good plan, based on how busy it was. The plates are not all the same size so we were glad our waitress was so helpful with how many to order. She was also...More

This is one of the places that should definitely be on every foodie's list for Manhattan. Superb quality of food, cosy and friendly atmosphere, good (but not amazing) service. It's hard to recommend something from the menu, as everything is really a fest for taste.

East Village
There’s still an independent vibe to the East Village,
which offers plenty of unique small businesses
catering to longtime New Yorkers and area college
students alike. The East Village retains a bit of the
old-time neighbourhood feel that you can still

shops, cozy restaurants, and lively bars. The scale of
the residential blocks makes this a wonderful place to
