Manousheh is a small takeout restaurant in Greenwich Village that specializes in Lebanese flatbreads (manousheh). There are plenty of meat and vegetable toppings, but we recommend the ground lamb and hummus. This place is open all day, so grab one at lunch (best enjoyed while sitting in Washington Square Park), or to coat your stomach before a night of drinking.

by CHLOE is the Greenwich Village restaurant that taught us that French fries are vegan.
Quick, specialty fast foods are something lower Manhattan now thrives on, and Tortaria deserves to be mentioned alongside their fellow low-cost, high-reward brethren. There’s a Mexican sandwich and a taquito for every palate.
