Post is a little restaurant in Alphabet City where you can get a biscuit sandwich any time of the day. It’s great for brunch, although there isn’t room for groups. They have a bar, a few window seats, and a single table in the back. So come by if you’re dining solo or with one or two friends. The menu is small, and it’s mostly just easy American comfort food (biscuits and gravy, roasted chicken, burger, etc.). If you live nearby, this could be your new go-to spot for a somewhat quick meal.

Like the original, the East Village location of Emmy Squared serves great Detroit-style pizzas (and one of our favorite burgers).
Avenida Cantina is quite possibly the worst Tex-Mex we've ever encountered. And one of us is from Texas.

Upstate Craft Beer & Oyster Bar is the ultimate neighborhood restaurant, with fresh seafood, friendly service, and free-flowing craft beer.

Bluestone Lane Collective Cafe
Bluestone Lane is all over Manhattan now, and that’s a good thing. But for a full-on meal, we still like the original spot in West Village best.
