Lois is a wine bar in the East Village that looks like a hipper and more expensive version of Ikea. And that’s the real draw of this place. That and the decently priced wine that’s all on tap (no bottles here). They also have some bar food like avocado arepas, and if you ever can’t decide between a good wine bar and a place that will Instagram well, come here. This place is both.

Root & Bone
Root & Bone in the East Village is Southern food done right. Hit it for dinner, hit it for brunch, hit it for takeout. Whatever you do, just hit it.
There's nothing memorable about the Mexican food at Rosie's, but it's a nice enough space for a margarita and guacamole.
Saxon + Parole
Saxon + Parole is not quite a place The Infatuation seeks out. But if you’re with a bunch of girlfriends, want a fun club scene, and don’t mind dropping $44 for some wings, you’ll love it.
