East Village Eats

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

Edi & The Wolf Has A Patio?

I still haven’t been to the new Austrian restaurant Edi & The Wolf (102 Avenue C at 7th St.) yet, but I’ll admit that I really do want to check it out.  A few days ago,  Grubstreet (via NY1) reports that their back patio should be opening any day now.  There aren’t any pictures yet, […]

Zum Schneider Revisited

I poke fun at Zum Schneider (107 Avenue C @ 7th Street) quite a bit due to the noise it generates, massive lines, Oktoberfest Madness & the ‘popped collar’ brunch crowd, but I will admit that I love that place. I live just around the corner on 7th Street & with the weather warming up, […]

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.

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 […]

Yaffa Cafe

This is a bit of a nostalgic post for me as I used to go to Yaffa Cafe (97 Saint Marks Pl at 1st Avenue) a lot when I first moved into the ‘hood in late 2001.  I preferred it over nearby 7A & Sidewalk Cafe for late night (they’re 24 hours) food. I returned […]

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.

Ruby’s Bar & Grill to close

In a further show of developer’s inability to mix the old & the new Ruby’s (1213 Riegelmann Boardwalk) will be shuttered for good in 2 weeks.  It’s already closed for the season, but it’ll never open again.  I reviewed it back in August & I can honestly say that I’m really going to miss this […]

Casimir now offering half portions

If you haven’t been to Casimir (103-105 Avenue B @6-7th St.) in a while & are squinting at the menu thinking you’re seeing things, trust me, you’re not.  Although it’s been in effect for some time, Casimir have recently reprinted their menus with pricing for the new ‘mini’ sized dishes in green. 50% of the […]

Brunch at Belcourt

Don’t you just hate it when you plan to go somewhere to eat & then you find out that they’re closed?  Well that’s what happened to a new-found foodie friend & I on Labor Day (I know, it’s a while back) when we tried to go to Vandaag (review to come).  We decided on one […]

Esperanto Revisited

So after my last review of brunch at Esperanto (review here) where I complained about the Huevos Loisada, I decided to post about the great brunch food there, namely the cheeseburger.  It was my birthday (Yay Me!) so I went with my mother & brother & got a pretty choice seat by the entrance.
