Garfunkel’s feels sort of like what a person from the 90’s thought a cool bar in the 2000’s would be like. It’s a speakeasy behind a door that looks like a safe, and it’s filled with furniture upholstered with suede and crushed velvet. That said, it’s a good place to know about if you want a cocktail on the LES, but you don’t feel like being surrounded by recent college graduates taking shots of raspberry vodka. Plus, you can drink while sitting in an armchair - which is nice if you’ve been working all week and the voodoo doll you made of your boss hasn’t been living up to expectations.

A tiny little ramen spot on the Lower East Side, serving up some very good soups that aren't as heavy as many others.
