A very relaxed afternoon brunch. Kofte meatballs with pitta bread. Very tasty indeed. A pleasant Mediterranean style restaurant with pleasant helpful staff. Quite popular in the evening. A good spot for a good snack.

Beautiful corner with a variety of European restyled dishes, tasty cocktails and vegan delicious options! It gets packed in the evening but the staff is extremely friendly and trained so I always found a seat without loosing patience or my smile. Loved it.

East Village
There’s still an independent vibe to the East Village,
which offers plenty of unique small businesses
catering to longtime New Yorkers and area college
students alike. The East Village retains a bit of the
old-time neighborhood feel that you can still
experience today thanks to a mix of locally-owned
shops, cozy restaurants, and lively bars. The scale of
the residential blocks makes this a wonderful place to
