East Village Eats

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

Tim Ho Wan

I’ve been excited to try this Dim Sum spot, labelled as the ‘cheapest Michelin-starred restaurant in the world‘, since it opened in December 2016.  Horror stories of insanely long lines kept me away till now.  I stopped by around 2pm on a Tuesday & was told that the wait would be 30 minutes.  You can […]

A look Inside Pardon My French

Pardon My French, formerly Casimir, has opened on Avenue B with a completely renovated bar in the previously under-used side room.  No word on the menu as yet, but it seems that that have taken a turn away from traditional French fare (see this NYPost article), as well as a revamped cocktail list.  I’ll admit […]

Free Meat Pie From Tuck Shop

The folks over at Tuck Shop are giving away a free savory pie (one per person) until March 2nd.  Go to their East Village shop, click on this link with your mobile device and show your server.  It’s a fairly easy process to get your hands on a delicious pie (I’m  big fan of the traditional […]

Jeepney Joins The Bottomless Brunch Crowd

Filipino gastropub, Jeepney, has introduced a bottomless brunch on weekends 2 hours of booze and an entree for $29.  I’m  big fan of Jeepney (as well as it’s sister restaurant, Maharlika) and I do love to get drunk, so this is a nice addition. It seems like a lot of East Village restaurants are offering […]

Yuji Ramen (Closed)

A friend had been telling me about this place for a while —  I rarely shop at Whole Foods & had never been to the food court upstairs, but it seems that I have been missing out on a whole lot. Started as a pop-up in the back of a brooklyn bar, Yuji has been […]

Idle Hands Taking Over Station B

Idle Hands, the “Bourbon, Beer & Rock” bar that has been in the basement of 25 Avenue B for the past few years will be taking over the upstairs bar with was previously Station B.  Word has it that it’ll be pretty much business as usual with the upstairs having the same excellent selection of […]

Boulton & Watt

Like many other East Villagers I was sad to see Nice Guy Eddies close.  The KISS mural outside was a bit of a neighborhood landmark, the food wasn’t the best (I was a fan of the wings) and the place was pretty dingy, but it was a chill place to get a beer & watch […]

Mighty Quinn’s BBQ

Normally when I think of good barbecue the first thing that comes to mind is a rundown old shack down south with a potbellied pitmaster that has been smoking meat for the best part of his life, not the epicenter of the East Village.  Mighty Quinn’s BBQ (which began at Smorgasburg) hopes to change that with […]
