Village Yokocho offers solid food for the price point. There are many options, some better than others, and drinks are cheaper than most other joints. The yakitori and kushiage combos are great bangs for the buck, while the specials and the other small plates are...More

A very authentic Japanese restaurant located on the second floor. It's extremely loud and there is a lot drinking going on here. It's a party place. When we arrived there were a ton of empty tables. The host insisted we waited with a group of...More

It is a great and authentic place. The majority of the clients are from japan. They have a very large and interesting menu. Seafood, sushi, dumplings, noddles and atipical cuts of meat. Really recomendable.

We loved Yokocho. The food was fresh and delicious. We had about 8 different dishes between the 4 of us and everyone was wonderful. I especially liked the tuna and quail eggs.

If you are looking for sushi, Yokocho is not for you---they don't have it on the menu. However, Yokocho is very authentic, you even feel like your in Tokyo---small, bustling, noisy, with a friendly staff. I wasn't familiar with many dishes on the menu so...More

You feel transported to Japan to a Izakaya somewhere in a Japanese city: a small door to enter the place, simple decoration, dim lights and a lot of Japanese memorabilia. Food was simple but tasty, service very friendly. They offer a wide variety of typical...More

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
