Eastwood is a little beer-and-wine bar on the southernmost end of the Lower East Side, and it’s a nice place to hang out in the daytime. We wouldn’t bring a date here, but it’s good for a quiet beer with a friend. And if you’re hungry, these guys do a big menu of Middle Eastern bar food. So go ahead and have a pita or a lamb burger.
