East Village Eats

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

‘Tattoosday’ At Bondi Road

Bondi Road, the Australian restaurant & LES cousin of The Sunburnt Cow has launched ‘Tattoosday’.  Under the tagline; “show us your ink and we’ll buy you a drink!” you get a free drink on Tuesdays if you show the bartender your tattoo. Bondi Road also features an Endless Raw Bar on Thursdays for $20 & a pretty impressive burger […]


So, Verso had their opening last night (see EVGrieve), so I went by today to see what was going on.  Formerly Caffee Pepe Rosso (which I loved), then Caffe Cotto (not so much), the space was completely gutted & rebuilt from the ground up.  I stopped by around 4 o’clock thinking the place was open, […]

Mini Burger Shutters

Mini Burger (102 St. Marks, near 1st Avenue, formerly Marco Polo Cafe) has been seized by Marshal’s (image) & is no longer open.  It’s a real shame as they made awesome Bison Sliders.

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 […]

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 […]

Lunch At Vandaag (Closed)

[Looking at the pictures, you might think I mean Liquid Lunch, but trust me, I don’t!] Funnily enough, the first time I came to Vandaag was at lunch, I’ve somehow managed to post my reviews in reverse order; Dinner here, Dessert here.  It was pretty empty (actually I think that there was only one other […]

‘Tis the Season for Delivery

Well, I meant to post this yesterday morning when conditions were a lot worse, but I guess it’s still relevant. With the ‘Great Blizzard of 2010’ causing havoc all over the East Village, it’s likely that several restaurants will be shuttered & honestly, I couldn’t fathom why anyone would want to be out in this […]

Making The Korzo Burger

You may have read my recent review of Korzo Haus (178 East 7th St. @ Avenue B), but I’d like to take a little time to talk in-depth about the Korzo Burger, a delicious deep fried cheeseburger that seems to be a favorite there.  The menu changes almost daily, but due to it’s popularity, the […]

Korzo Haus

It’s been a while since I’ve talked about the work going on at the old Mohamed’s Falafel Star, so it’s about time that I reviewed Korzo Haus (178 East 7th St. @ Avenue B), one of the newer additions to East Village dining.  Don’t let the exterior (which I really don’t care for) fool you, […]

Royale Revisited

Trolling along Avenue C & looking for something to eat, I decided to stop by my old haunt Royale (157 Avenue C @ 10th Street review here).  I haven’t been there in several months & I wanted to see if there have been any changes there.
