East Village Eats

Food & Drink recommendations straight from the East Village, New York City

Little Town NYC

I couyld eat oysters pretty much all day long, so it’s no surprise that I was looking forward to a meal with my Mom at Little Town NYC. Opened in April 2011, it’s basically a 72 seat mecca of local beef, shellfish & beer.  All of the shellfish & beer are from New York State & Hudson […]

Cinco de Mayo Derby at Idle Hands Bar

If you haven’t been able to deduct from the title, tomorrow is Cinco de Mayo and also the Kentucky Derby.  Cinco de Mayo is normally seen as a celebration of Mexican pride & heritage or the anniversary of the unlikely win at the Battle of Puebla in 1862.  For a non-Mexican like myself, it’s normally […]

Show Your Support For Josie’s

Ever since the owner of Joe’s Bar passed away last Thanksgiving there has been much speculation about what would happen to the bar.  It turns out that the team behind Sophie’s & Mona’s will be taking over the space & calling it Josie’s.  They’re asking for help from the neighborhood to support the liquor license transfer.  If […]

Joe’s Bar Becoming Josie’s?

The Brooklyn Star

I don’t travel to Brooklyn that much, but dinner at The Brooklyn Star with friends seemed too good to pass up. I was busy eating junk food at home when I got a text inviting me to dinner. Obviously, I had to look at the menu online first, but once I saw Fried Pig Tail, […]

Bond Street Revisited

I’ve been going to Bond Street for about 10 years now.  Opting for the downstairs lounge as friends of mine have worked there, I’ve always had a good time.  Not to be cheating on my East Village sushi mainstay, Takahachi, but Bond St. takes it to another level entirely.  My last two visits with my […]

Duke’s Bar on its last legs?

Duke’s bar on Avenue C has been my haven from huge crowds & douchebags for quite a few years.  It’s a low key bar that offered cheap beer, pool, Buck Hunter, darts & a promise of no hassle.  A few months ago, the bar lost access to the basement, meaning they had to pull all […]

Petite Abeille Revisited

After the amazing meal my family had at Petite Abeille (401 East 20th Street at 1st Avenue) last summer, I decided to go back on with my mother on a lazy Saturday.  As soon as we entered the restaurant, I could feel a change in the vibe from our previous visit.  There were strollers everywhere […]
