We were having a drink with a friend right opposite and when looking for somewhere to eat I mentioned it and he said it was good so we went. We were not disappointed, we had a wrap and it was delicious.

A very good place to make friends and go on a date or find a date. Good beer selection, but occasionally you get watered down drinks which can be disappointing!

Stumbled upon this adorable pub after a hot and sweaty day of walking. Mid-afternoon, so lots of empty tables and we were seated right away. Good service, good food, and the pub ambiance was perfect. There is sidewalk seating that looked fabulous, but we were...More

East Village
There’s still an independent vibe to the East Village,
which offers plenty of unique small businesses
catering to longtime New Yorkers and area college
students alike. The East Village retains a bit of the
old-time neighbourhood feel that you can still
experience today thanks to a mix of locally-owned

the residential blocks makes this a wonderful place to
