We trusted the Lonely Planet and we decided to try Kuma Inn. We finded it quite easily, thanks to the description read on the guide (look for number 113 painted on the wall, if you mean to go there). We made a reservation for the...More

TL;DR- Fantastic food above a Bulgarian nightclub! This place isn't the easiest to find the only clue is the writing on the pillars around the door. But enter and go up a flight of stairs and you find yourself in a atmospherically lit nicely decorated...More

This pace is heard to find, spray painting on the door frame isn't massively obvious. You go up 2 flights of stairs, it all looks a it sketchy, then you find this little restaurant. Mood lighting with bamboo/woven wall decorations. It feels a little run...More

A friend who lives in NYC recommended this Filipino tapas place. We grabbed two bottles of wine from September wines down the street. Our server kept them on ice for us and was very helpful with our order. The restaurant is small and dark but...More

Had this place recommended by a friend, who unfortunately didn't mention the cash only policy, and that it was BYO. Nonetheless, we ended up having a really good time. Small tapas style dishes (I recommend 5-6 for a couple) of random Asian/fusion flavors. The restaurant...More

Great little hole in the wall place that was recommended by a local. We had no reservation but got a table easily. Beware that Filipino food is sweet so the soy tastes are quite strong. Everything's great, just remember to BYO beer or wine to...More

Lower East Side
Straddling the bridge between New York’s thriving
immigrant past and its modern transformation into a
beacon of global art and culture, the Lower East Side
is one of the most dynamic neighborhoods in the city.
The blocks of tenements that represented the promise
and blight of the Lower East Side immigrant experience
now command top dollar for new residents. Right next
to old-world delis, 24-hour bodegas, and the garment
