If you don’t want to worry about coming in contact with any gluten whatsoever, Senza Gluten should be (or might already be) in your regular rotation. This is a completely gluten-free Italian restaurant in Greenwich Village that’s been around for a while, and the obvious upside here is that you can order anything without worrying whether or not you can actually eat it. If you’re not GF, you probably don’t need to eat here, but if you are, the pasta will make you happy. A few things to know: this place only takes cash and Amex, the entrees are in the $30 range, and you’ll hear romantic music that could plausibly be played in a commercial for jewelry or cell phone family plans.

Sticky's Finger Joint
We’ve got to admit that even though we aren’t the target audience for Sticky's Finger Joint, we kind of love this place. It's basically stoner food at it’s best and most ridiculous, with a menu filled with genius chicken finger flavor creations.
J.G. Melon Downtown
A new J.G. Melon in Greenwich Village, with new owners but the same great burger. MacDougal Street just got instantly better.
Pearl Oyster Bar
Almost everything on Pearl Oyster Bar menu is fantastic, but what really keeps us coming back though is the fried oyster sandwich.

Fiaschetteria Pistoia is a tiny Italian spot in the West Village that’s great for last-second dates.
An alpha-dog hot spot that most people around town will passionately defend as the best of it’s kind, even though the service is cold and the food heavy handed and extravagant.
