Karakatta is a casual new ramen restaurant in Greenwich Village from the people behind one of the best places to get ramen on the Lower East Side (Mr. Taka). This 12-seat spot specializes in spicy ramen, and while there are other things on the menu, those are what we’d recommend you stick with (besides the pork buns, which should be on your table). Just know that given its proximity to NYU, it feels a little bit like a mini-dining hall in here.

Sticky's Finger Joint
We’ve got to admit that even though we aren’t the target audience for Sticky's Finger Joint, we kind of love this place. It's basically stoner food at it’s best and most ridiculous, with a menu filled with genius chicken finger flavor creations.
O Cafe is a Brazilian coffee shop in Greenwich Village with a few food options, including a good pao de queijo (gluten-free cheese bread).
Pearl Oyster Bar
Almost everything on Pearl Oyster Bar menu is fantastic, but what really keeps us coming back though is the fried oyster sandwich.
