I came here after drinking across the street and got a tuna melt. Probably a bad choice right out the gate?? Definitely not the worst tuna melt I've ever had and I didn't get sick...so what more can you ask for? It's a no-frills diner....More

Just at the lower end of the HighLine, this is a proper diner with efficient and accurate service. They do a great breakfast!

Ok , tourists forget the other trendy places around the area. You must go to Hectors. Not fancy, melamine tables, BUT just good food and traditional friendly service. It is reasonably priced. Large menu..

West Village
Stretching from Sixth Avenue to the Hudson River, the
West Village is one of the city’s most coveted
addresses. Full of trendy shops, historic taverns, and
cozy restaurants set amid 19th century architecture,
this neighborhood has a unique old-world feel. You
won’t find a more picturesque location in Manhattan.
