When you want to eat somewhere in the East Village where everybody tried on multiple outfits before leaving the apartment, you could go to Cafe Mogador. This Moroccan spot has been on St Marks since 1983, and there are long waits here most nights and all day on weekends. Along with meze (small plates), they serve larger dishes like couscous with lamb shank and chicken tagine. The indoor space works well for relatively affordable group dinners, and the sidewalk seating out front is ideal during brunch.

Hearth has been one of the East Village’s best restaurants for over a decade, and it just got a whole lot lighter and leaner.
