Reading through some of the other reviews of this place I can't help but feel they are wayyyyy over the top. There's a lot to like about this place but 'best French food in the city'? Talk about hyperbole! This is a place that lets...More

I went to this restaurant with my daughter for the first time. Due to its location (East Village) it is (luckily!) out of main tourist areas in NYC. My selection of mussels was excellent and the waitress even offered complimentary tasting portions with different sauces...More

I've brunched here several times and the food is always delicious and a greatvalue. I haven't experienced any service that was less than pleasant. Like most brunch places it can get busy but I've never waited all that long.

Flea Market is a perfect place for casual lunch/brunch dinner. We had a terrific burger and a superb eggs benedict. The staff were very friendly indeed and we enjoyed our stay there. It's a pseudo French cafe with lots of interesting knick knacks decorating the...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

the residential blocks makes this a wonderful place to
