You know when you walk into a place and immediately think to yourself, "Oh, I can see myself hanging out here regularly"? This is another cafe that serves kind of healthy stuff in bowls somewhat in the vein of Dimes (it's just around the corner, too), but we like both the vibe and the food better than most of the competition. There's some Brazilian influence, and the dishes are interesting overall: your standard eggs and avocado bowl will come with a seafoam green pumpkin seed paste, for example. Dinner service starts soon.

During brunch hours, it’s not uncommon for people outside Clinton Street Baking Company to wait two hours for the pure, fluffy cakes of ecstasy that this place is known for. We won’t join them…but we can’t blame them either.
Le French Diner
We like this tiny French restaurant on the Lower East Side so much we almost didn’t want to tell you about it.
Ivan Ramen is an extremely popular ramen spot from Japan, now in the Lower East Side.
Though the food at Bacaro is pretty good, it's the kind of place you come to for the atmosphere. Exposed brick, crystal chandeliers, one large white candle on each table...if you can actually manage to get a date to come to this part of Manhattan, at least know you're probably going to close the deal.
