East Village Eats

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

Lunch At The Brindle Room

Lunch can be somewhat boring in the East Village since there aren’t really that many good places that open & serve food before 4pm (I often find myself returning to the same places over & over again) which is why I was excited that The Brindle Room is open for lunch. I had recently watched […]

Goat Town Puts The Backyard To Work

I went back to Goat Town (further coverage here) recently & asked about what they planned to do with the backyard. I had thought that they might offer outdoor seating, but turns out that they decided to grow herbs out there. I’m not exactly sure what is growing there, but from the picture, I can […]

The Farm On Adderley

It takes a lot to get me out of the East Village, but a trip into Brooklyn takes a lot of coaxing. A friend invited me to his ‘hood (Ditmas Park) for lunch I decided that I’d give it a shot.  After a surprisingly painless trip on the L & Q trains, I arrived at a really […]

The Big Beef Dinner at Northern Spy Food Co.

One of my favorite local restaurants, Northern Spy Food Co. (511 East 12th Street between A & 1st Avenue, previously reviewed here) is serving up a 4 course meal next Wednesday April 13th.  The locally sourced, pasture raised beef is provided by Fleisher’s & $50 will get you the following ($20-$36 for wine pairing); Steak […]

A Return to Goat Town

I’ve been posting quite a bit about Goat Town (511 East 5th Street between Avenue A & B) in the past few months because I really would like to see the restaurant do well.  I’ll admit that the food is not ‘knock your socks off’ amazing, but there are a few dishes that they do […]

Station Diner

I’m adding this entry because I carry my camera everywhere & insist on taking pictures of any food that I do eat.  I rang in 20011 in Carroll Gardens at Brooklyn Social, a few hours after my epic first meal at Goat Town.  After a lot of booze & a bar crawl through the Gowanus […]

Butchering Demo & Meal @ Back Forty

One of my go-to restaurants in the East Village, Back Forty (190 Avenue B @ 12th Street, coverage here) will be offering a lamb butchering demo by chef Shanna Pacifico (check out this awesome video of her butchering beef on Food Curated).  A small group of 12 will watch Shanna butcher an entire lamb then […]

Life Cafe

A few weeks ago, Life Cafe (343 East 10th Street at Avenue B) had a competition on Twitter (@LifeCafe), it was a simple multiple choice question & if you got it right, you won a free bottle of champagne.  Well, I answered correctly & descended on the place with a few friends for dinner.

Brunch at Jane

There are plenty of places to go to brunch in the East Village, but I traveled to Greenwich Village with a friend to check out Jane for some Bloody Marys & food.  I’ve been there before for dinner a long time ago, so I was excited to check out brunch there, particularly because I know the […]

Food Parc

Way out of my normal stomping grounds & with possibly the shakiest camera in existence, I headed up to Food Parc (851 Avenue of the Americas at West 30th Street) for some late night food & drinks.  I had never been there before or even heard of it.  I was pleasantly surprised  to find a […]
