East Village Eats

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

Aurora

When I started this blog just over 3 years ago I chose (what I thought was) a clever name and planned to review the area that I live in solely, but there’s so much great food in this, the most amazing of cities, that I’d be doing everyone a disservice if I didn’t branch out […]

BrisketTown

Hidden behind a unique wooden door lies what I can only describe as the Holy Grail of Meat.  Several weeks after my visit to Daniel Delaney’s pop-up BrisketLab (more on that awesome day here), they’ve opened their first brick & mortar location in Williamsburg.  We had pre-ordered 3lbs of meat, so we were guaranteed to […]

St. Dymphna’s

Reminding me of my school years in England, St. Dymphna’s brings an awesome Irish flair to the East Village.  Ice-cold Guinness, a no nonsense menu & an awesome staff totally round out this Irish Pub in the East Village.  I’ve been going there for a few years & the place just seems to get better […]

Sunday Roast at Tuck Shop

The St Marks Pl. outpost of the Aussie meat pie slinging Tuck Shop will be offering expats (and locals alike) a taste of home with a weekly Sunday Roast from 3-7pm.  15 bucks will get you roast lamb, veggies, Yorkshire pudding & gravy.  They’ll also be showing Aussie TV & Match of the Day.  Don’t […]

New Fall Menu At Arcane

East Village restaurant Arcane has brought in chef Justin Fertitta (formerly of Jane and Toucan & The Lion) to revamp their menu.  Previously featuring French and Caribbean cuisine, chef Fertitta (who has traveled extensively in the region) has added Asian influences & shortened the menu to 6 starters and 6 entrees.

Dim Sum Sunday At Sake Bar Satsko

Sake Bar Satsko will have a variety of dim sum on the menu every Sunday, 2pm to midnight. From a recent Facebook Update: Dim Sum Sunday starting this Sunday, October 14th. Pork & garlic chive / chili infused sauce Eggplant & tofu / soy sherry sauce Crispy shrimp balls / lime fish sauce Pork & […]

Bondi Road Set To Close This Sunday

A friend passed by Bondi Road in the Lower East Side & noted that there was a sign up stating that the Australian restaurant will be closing on September 30th.  Owned by Moo Life Group, the same folks behind Sunburnt Cow (coverage) in the East Village, it seems that skyrocketing rents have forced the closure.

Charrito’s Restaurant

I haven’t been ashamed to say that I rarely leave the East Village, so a post about a Mexican restaurant in Weehawken, NJ is somewhat out of place here. A friend recently moved over there and the fact that I had a free car ride & the promise of good Mexican food was enough to […]

Petrossian

Caviar, I can’t get enough of the stuff.  Unfortunately, it’s so damn expensive that opportunities are few and far between.  When an affordable four course meal for two popped up on Groupon, I decided that it was time to take my Mom out for dinner.  If you haven’t been to the restaurant, odds are that […]
