  1. Momofuku Ko

    Momofuku Ko

    163 1st Ave., East Village, NY 10003

    It’s been a few years since Momofuku Ko opened, and now that the restaurant world is done freaking out over it, we figured it was time to check in on the place and see how it’s holding up. Well, that and it took us this long to finally get a reservation. By our calculations, that […]

  2. Momofuku Ssam

    Momofuku Ssäm Bar

    207 2nd Ave., East Village, NY 10003

    Believe the hype. This is an all time Infatuation favorite. Be prepared to eat an unhealthy amount of pork and be very, very happy about it.

  3. Ippudo


    65 4th Ave., East Village, NY 10003

    In my dreams there is a Japanese Willy Wonka, and his factory looks like one giant Ippudo. I want to be the fat little German kid that drowns in a river of pork broth and noodles. This updated review of Ippudo is not here to mark a change in our opinion of the place. I […]

  4. Motorino


    349 E. 12th St., East Village, NY 10009

    Is this the best pizza in New York City? We’re not dumb enough to make that bold claim. This is, however, our most frequented pizza joint in town. Motorino is incredible.

  5. Il Buco Alimentari e Vineria

    Il Buco Alimentari e Vineria

    53 Great Jones St., NoHo, NY 10012

    We love it when people get up in arms over a restaurant review. “How dare the New York Times give a Il Buco Alimentari e Vineria three stars? It’s a sandwich shop! Who do they think they are? That’s how many Adour by Alain Ducasse has!” Those aren’t real quotes, but that’s the “people who […]

  6. Narcissa


    21 Cooper Square, East Village, NY 10005

    We are often asked the following question: “What’s the hottest restaurant in New York City right now?” Then there is almost always the following caveat: “The food doesn’t have to be great.” And another caveat: “I’m not asking for me. My sister’s boyfriend is a Hollywood lawyer and he’s in town looking for a good […]

  7. Momofuku Noodle Bar

    Momofuku Noodle Bar

    171 1st Ave., East Village, NY 10003

    Not the cheapest bowl of noodles in New York, and maybe not even the best, but Momofuku Noodle Bar is an indisputable Infatuation favorite. Come for all the other amazing things this place has to offer, like fried chicken, pork buns, and a soft serve machine.

    111 1st Ave., East Village, NY 10003

    What started as a once a week pop-up brunch has now turned into a Filipino empire in the making. The crew of friends behind this new restaurant called Maharlika felt that Filipino food was under represented in NYC. So, without much in the way of formal training or restaurant experience, they set out to showcase […]

  9. Mighty Quinn's Barbecue

    Mighty Quinn’s Barbecue

    103 2nd Ave., East Village, NY 10003

    Did someone say Brontosaurus Rib? On a menu in NYC? You now have our undivided attention. As we’re all well aware, barbecue isn’t a game we play on home ice here in New York (hockey reference?). It’s not native to this land, and try as we may, there are only a few smoked meats in […]

  10. Five Points

    Five Points

    31 Great Jones St., NoHo, NY 10012

    One of the most reliable and universally likeable restaurants we’ve been to, coming through in the clutch time after time.
