Whenever we need help sleeping, we just think of Pi Bakerie’s spiral-shaped spanakopita pastries. This is a Greek counter-service spot from the same owners of another Greek bakery in Astoria we really like (Artopolis Bakery). You could have a sit-down meal here during the day, or just stop by and get a pastry. Try the spanakopita, some grape leaves, and a great, massive square of meaty moussaka.

Soho Park is a very casual spot on Prince Street where you can sit down, eat an okay sandwich, and feel like you’re not in Soho.
Sola Pasta Bar
Sola Pasta Bar is from a chef who apparently had a Michelin star in Italy at one point - which is surprising, because the pasta here is very bad.
Good Story Rooftop Lounge
Good Story is the rooftop bar at the Arlo Soho hotel, and, as far as rooftop bars go, it’s a pretty pleasant place to hang with a group downtown.

Ela Taverna isn’t too special, although it’s a little better than your run-of-the-mill Greek, and it’s good for an easy dinner in Williamsburg.
