East Village Eats

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

About Me

Me, a long, loooong time ago!I’m Jason, a 30-something slacker that has traveled & lived all around the world (Europe mainly), but I’ve been in the East Village since 2001.  I never really considered myself a ‘foodie’ or even a half-decent cook until joining a cooking club called Thursday Club NYC in 2004.  Since then I’ve tried to hone my skills in the kitchen, restaurants AND bars!  I’ve recently completed Alan Richman’s Craft of Food Writing course at The French Culinary Institute and Andrew Smith’s Professional Food Writing course at the New School.  I hope to do the Steven Shaw’s New Media course there shortly.

This blog is my ode to the East Village & I hope to bring honest & accurate reviews of all that this amazing area has to offer (& other areas too).  ENJOY!
