This place is the best kept secret in New York, a couple steps down from street level on Houston, a block or so East of MacDougal. I think they have a lobster connection in the family. And possibly own the building because they somehow manage...More

I enjoyed the meal and the service was very good. The decor is hilarious and dated. The Mexican food was above average for New York City. It had some real spice and flavor. However, the salad was bland and the drinks weren't very good. I...More

We had eaten at this restaurant ten years ago and was amazed to find it still exists. We were able to have the lunch special of paella for 2 people for only $8.95 per person. That also included the soup of the day and a...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.
