Ten Degrees is a wine bar in the East Village that has a great Happy Hour - all drinks are two-for-one until 8pm everyday, including on weekends. The crowded horseshoe bar up front is best when they open the doors during nice weather, and the small tables along the walls in the back work well for early-in-the-game dates.

Rai Rai Ken
There’s plenty of ramen in the East Village these days, and no shortage of opinions on where to go. We happen to believe that Rai Rai Ken sits near the top of the heap, mostly because that shoyu ramen is so good, but also because it’s inexpensive and simple.

Ardesia is first and foremost a wine bar, and a good one at that. The food is decent, but it’s secondary to what they do best, which is selecting excellent “mineral-driven” wines from all over the world.
