Kanoyama serves some of the best sushi you’ll find for the money in the East Village, and maybe all of Manhattan.
For a place where dinner costs $255, Momofuku Ko is surprisingly relaxed. The tasting menu changes often, but expect excellent food.

Boulton & Watt
Boulton & Watt is a solid neighborhood hang with average bar food and some TVs for sports viewing purposes. Adjust expectations accordingly.
Good Enough To Eat
The Upper West Side may not be flush with noteworthy dining out options, but they certainly have one meal on lockdown – brunch. Good Enough To Eat has been an institution up in these parts for a good 30 years, and a spot we'll happily go to for simple, heavy handed home cooking.
Bill's Bar & Burger
We had hoped that instead of conforming to Midtown, Bill’s Bar and Burger would make Midtown conform to it. It did not.

Miss Lily’s 7A Cafe
Miss Lily’s is basically the Jamaican Cracker Barrel, the way they’re expanding. That’s a good thing. We love Cracker Barrel.
DBA is a bar in the East Village that’s good for people who like whiskey and beer and drinking those things outside.
