Tucked away in the East Village, you'll walk down a few steps to enter Exchange Alley. Upon entering the restaurant, you almost feel like you're stepping into an old speakeasy. Cozy and inviting, the space is dimly lit, clad with black and white vintage photos,...More

Bring a group of close friends, order everything on the menu and indulge. Matt, one of the owners is a friendly talkative character that might buy you a drink or 20 if you get him to tell you about his interesting life!

My daughter and I had a fabulous brunch at Exchange Alley last Saturday. She had delectable poached eggs in tomatoes (surprisingly yellow in color), a perfect summer dish. I had a French Fried Po'Boy with dirty gravy; worth every single calorie! We enjoyed "bloodies" with...More

Convenient to Ground Zero, we stopped here for lunch. They have an international menu, but we opted for the Turkish food. Excellent Lamb and onion panini on bed of salad with yogurt and herb dressing.

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
