If Dimes Square had a neighborhood bistro, what would it look like? Would it have bright red floors? And faux marble pillars? How about some funky ‘80s-esque light fixtures and a bust of the Virgin Mary? That sounds about right, and it’s exactly what you’ll find at Casino. This Lower East Side restaurant is all about ambiance—but the food isn’t an afterthought. The Mediterranean menu is hearty and unpretentious, with options like a cioppino packed with shellfish and a filet mignon served on brioche coated in duck liver mousse. The latter might sound fussy, but it isn’t. It’s satisfying, a bit messy, and weirdly nostalgic. And that’s Casino in a nutshell. Try this place for your next casually extravagant night out, and don’t skip the cocktails.

Le Dive

Le Dive is a busy little wine bar in a very busy part of the Lower East Side, and it's a great spot to drink, snack, and take in a scene.

Despite the wait times, we wholeheartedly recommend having a fun, seafood-dominated meal at Cervo’s on the Lower East Side.

Wu’s Wonton King

Wu’s is a big restaurant on the LES where you can get a whole roasted suckling pig and sit around a big round table. Plus, it’s BYOB.
