B & H Dairy

$$$$

127 2nd Ave, New York
View WebsiteEarn 3X Points

This Kosher lunch counter is the kind of classic New York place that makes us say, “goddammit I love B&H Dairy” every time we pass by. It’s been open since the 1940s and now run by a couple who met in the East Village (they’re named Ola and Fawzy, make sure to say hi).

The Eastern European breakfast and lunch menus are extensive, but you can’t go wrong with pierogies. Get them filled with potato or sauerkraut and mushroom, and you’ll spend your afternoon living in a sour cream-allium-filled paradise. Otherwise, try one of the soups or giant sandwiches (like the tuna melt on toasted, homemade challah). Feel free to bring your own newspaper and tattered hat for a full New York experience.

La Bonbonniere

Sometimes you don’t want brunch. Sometimes you want breakfast at noon. There’s a difference. La Bonbonniere is a Village safe haven from all things hollandaise, and one of the best true breakfast joints in town.

Motorino isn't the best pizza in New York City, but it is one of our most frequented pizza joints in town.

Pylos

Pylos is a longtime Greek restaurant in the East Village, and it’s a perfect back-pocket spot.
