Inside dinnertable, NYC’s First “Reverse Speakeasy”

Cuisine: | Featured in First Bite, Hottest Newcomers, Restaurant Spotting

There’s nothing ostensibly clandestine about the goings-on at The Garret East. Make your way through the (well marked) doors, and you’ll find the music pumping, the crowds bumping and everyone drinking; in perfectly plain sight. But if — perhaps in a boozy search for the bathroom — you happen to stumble your way past an inconspicuous curtain, you’ll be confronted with a single, discreet buzzer on a wall, enigmatically demanding that you “Push For Food.”

David’s Cafe is Ready for Its Close-Up

Cuisine: , | Featured in First Bite, Hottest Newcomers, Restaurant Spotting, Reviews

It seems you gotta have a gimmick if you wanna get ahead in the East Village nowadays. David Chang & Brooks Headley face off with their cheffy takes on greasy fast food favorites. There are even media perennials, such as Harry & Ida’s, and its well-Instagrammed pastrami sandwich.

Shockingly Good Vegan Eats at Avant Garden

Cuisine: | Featured in First Bite, Restaurant Spotting

Considering seminal bar owner Ravi DeRossi’s especially indulgent projects, like Death & Co. & Mayahuel, you’d hardly finger him to eventually open a refined, vegan restaurant. And yet, that’s precisely what he did this past fall, launching the critically-acclaimed Avant Garden…

Inside the Arepa Factory: An Ode to Venezuelan Corn Cakes

Cuisine: | Featured in Ethnic Eats, Restaurant, Restaurant Spotting

It’s easy to look at the one-month-old Arepa Factory as a direct challenge to Caracas, now that they’re positioned mere blocks away from each other in the food-blessed East Village. But if multiple spots can peddle pizza in the very same place, why should it be any different for arepas?

Truly Innovative Thai Food at Ngam

Cuisine: | Featured in Ethnic Eats, First Bite, Restaurant, Restaurant Spotting, Reviews
