  1. Ushiwakamaru

    Ushiwakamaru

    136 Houston St., Greenwich Village, NY 10012

    Everyone has their favorite sushi spot, and if you ask us, your go-to destination says a lot about you. Sushi of Gari is your joint? You either have too much money or moved here from LA. You’re a Blue Ribbon person? You probably go on a lot of dates. Too many dates. Nobu is still […]

  2. Jane

    Jane

    100 West Houston, Greenwich Village, NY 10012

    Head spinning after a long day of getting dragged around Soho with the female? Find salvation in a crisp Blue Point Toasted Lager draft and steak frites at Jane. It’ll help restore the equilibrium. The predecessor to fratty East Village favorite, The Smith, Jane is its slightly more sophisticated older sister.

    Joseph Leonard

    170 Waverly Place, West Village, NY 10014

    Conceived in the spirit of Little Owl, this is a tiny West Village restaurant perfectly engineered for surveying action while you eat. Dinner is generally better than brunch, but it’s a nice place to dine any time of day.

  4. Minetta Tavern
    7.7

    Minetta Tavern

    113 MacDougal St., Greenwich Village, NY 10012

    So much hype. We like Minetta Tavern, but come on…everyone needs to chill out. Plus, we don’t approve of restaurants with bouncers.

  5. Bar Carerra
    7.7

    Bar Carrera

    146 W. Houston St., Greenwich Village, NY 10012

    Bar Carrera is an example of little things done right. The diminutive Spanish restaurant and wine bar turns out excellent small plates from a tiny kitchen at the back of the room.

    Little Owl

    90 Bedford St., West Village, NY 10014

  7. Lupa

    Lupa

    170 Thompson St., Greenwich Village, NY 10012

    Did you know that Affliction makes blazers? Well they do. We saw one at Lupa. On a real person. I suppose just in case you need to dress up that mixed martial arts look you’ve got going on. At this point, you either know, or shouldn’t be surprised to learn that Mario Batali restaurants can […]

  8. Wong

    Wong

    7 Cornelia St., Greenwich Village, NY 10014

    We’re not big fans of the word “Pan-Asian.” I suppose it evokes visions of a Saturday Night meal at a PF Chang’s somewhere in Northern Virginia. Even worse is when the word “fusion” is added and used to describe a restaurant’s cuisine – a sure fire indication that the place not only sucks, but probably […]

  9. Blind Tiger

    Blind Tiger

    281 Bleecker St., Greenwich Village, NY 10014

    We are spoiled in this city…especially when it comes to food, booze, and the general pursuit of things that make us feel good. In a place where pretty much anything you can think of is no further than a cab ride away, it’s easy to become jaded and complain about the few things you can’t […]

  10. Bar Pitti
    7.4

    Bar Pitti

    268 Ave of the Americas, Greenwich Village, NY 10014

    Outdoor/Patio Situation at Bar Pitti when it’s nice out. It’s quite the scene. Be prepared for what you’re walking into. This specific block of 6th Ave is primo Celebrity Sightings, it’s the food, Pitti’s classic Italian dishes, that’s the real draw. The crowds out front might suggest that Pitti is an absolute mob scene, but […]
