Mr. Purple is the restaurant/bar on top of Hotel Indigo on the Lower East Side. They do lunch, brunch, and dinner, and there are two terraces where you can sit outside. There’s also a little pool. You probably aren’t going to swim in it, but it’s nice to know that you could. This place isn’t as cheesy as a lot of the rooftop bars you see out there, but it does get crowded. So, unless you come early, you might have some trouble at the door.

A Korean-ish small plates spot in the East Village that’s affordable, tasty, and really fun.
At The Fly, you eat chicken and drink wine. In other words, it’s pretty ideal, and you should grab some dinner at this Bed-Stuy spot.
A nice, big Bushwick restaurant with interesting pastas. It's not quite a destination, but it's a nice addition to the neighborhood.
