We used to order from Sushi Yawa when I first started working at the new office. We don't anymore. Do you know why? Of course, you don't. You're waiting for me to tell you. It's because someone, sometimes two or three people, always get sick. Yes, sick. I used to order the Neptune roll with a side of edamame. Last... More

This was a fun stop. We loved the calamari with Thai Chili sauce (I think I could dip cardboard in that stuff and it would taste good). Rock & Roll and the fried oyster rolls were our favorite.

Staying in Greenwich Village

Neighborhood Profile
Greenwich Village
Commonly known as “the Village” to New Yorkers, it was here in Greenwich Village that both 1960’s counter culture and the LGBT movement were born. Famous for its bohemian past, head to Washington Square Park to get a feel for this diverse and energetic neighborhood. You’ll find NYU students, street performers, skateboarders, kids frolicking in the fountain, and locals relaxing and playing chess. Stroll the streets to discover a mix of majestic town homes and hidden bars and restaurants that give this neighborhood an old-school residential feel. When the sun goes down, check out one of the famous jazz or comedy clubs that still packs them in every night.
