Popped in here twice on a week's business trip as it was open late and friendly. Food was excellent, as were cocktails and beer. Great place to relax and refuel.

We ate The Meatball Shop near Orchard Street. The staff are very friendly. The meatballs are delicious. And for dessert I had the Snickerdoodle ice cream sandwich with the ice cream being ginger vanilla. We will definitely be going back.

Lower East Side
Straddling the bridge between New York’s thriving
immigrant past and its modern transformation into a
beacon of global art and culture, the Lower East Side
is one of the most dynamic neighbourhoods in the city.

and blight of the Lower East Side immigrant experience
now command top dollar for new residents. Right next
to old-world delis, 24-hour bodegas, and the garment
