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.

Mermaid Oyster Bar
We love the Mermaid restaurants, but an oyster bar? I guess fifteen or so varieties qualify you, but we were hoping for a deeper raw bar and a little more excitement. Where's the oyster inspiration?
The Malt House
The Malt House is one of the least-worst pubs in Greenwich Village. If you’re in the area, and you need a beer and some french fries, stop in.
El Toro Blanco
El Toro Blanco is a trendy spot that’s Perfect For some Action At The Bar and a slightly less Raucous Party Atmosphere than you’d get a few avenues over in the Meat Packing District. The food just isn’t all that good.
