The food was generally good especially potato and beef based. Seafood was not so good but quite acceptable. As the place got busier service understandably slowed, ordering extra dishes after the first few was a mistake as it spoiled the otherwise good experience. Suggest order...More

Nail is a small and intimate bar and restaurant specializing in tapas. Our party of eight sampled a variety of dishes that were enjoyed by all. Blueberry champagne sangria served by the pitcher paired well with tapas. Dancers and musicians were over the top great!...More

Not only delicious but the owners (I believe a young couple) are incredibly helpful and offer suggestions which turn out to be delightful. Live music nights are loud- but it is to be expected since the space is small and it is "live". Wonderful and...More

This is my favorite place to go for dinner in the city and I have a great experience every time. The best days to go are Thursday and Saturday nights because they have live flamenco, which is amazing. The atmosphere is so cool and lots...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
shops, cozy restaurants, and lively bars. The scale of
the residential blocks makes this a wonderful place to
