little neighborhood joint that looks tiny but fits more than you think. Great food. Loved the ceviche varieties and a good stiff margarita on the sidewalk, making friends with the strangers next to me and watching the impromptu male stripteaze upstairs across the street. Worse...More

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
