My wife and I went to Jack Bistro on a Friday evening. The atmosphere was just right, busy and buzzing, but still calm enough to talk and relax. The food was tasty and substantial for the price range. The $24 dining deal works well with...More

Greenwich Village
Commonly known as “the Village” to New Yorkers, it was
here in Greenwich Village that both 1960’s counter
culture and the LGBT movement were born. Famous for
its bohemian past, head to Washington Square Park to
get a feel for this diverse and energetic
neighbourhood. You’ll find NYU students, street
performers, skateboarders, kids frolicking in the
fountain, and locals relaxing and playing chess.
