There are three Gotan locations in NYC, and they’re all essentially half-coffee-shop, half-restaurant. Bring your laptop and hang out for hours, or stop by for a pretty substantial breakfast or lunch. You can get a bowl of yogurt with berries and granola, or you can have a salad. Try the one with tuna, egg, and avocado, or go the sandwich route if you want something a little less healthy.

Blue Ribbon Downing Street Bar
Blue Ribbon Downing Street Bar is a tiny place in the West Village where you can sit on a barstool, eat some small plates, and have a few drinks.
Brindle Room exemplifies amateur hour. Inedible food, sad decor, and the dishes took eons to reach our plates.
One of the few New York City restaurants you can count on for an excellent meal regardless of circumstance. Go for any meal or for a day on the patio.
Suggested by our writers
Two Hands is a coffee shop and cafe in Little Italy full of very nice and very good looking Australians. But yeah, you’re there for a latte. Sure.
