Looking for a good hot dog or crab sandwich this is the place. BUT best of all is deviled egg with fried shrimp on top. Really a great taste, surprising combo. Will make it when we get home. Good service, quaint and laid back.

Great bartender. Wish the menu had wider choices and reflected their namesake - the beach in Montauk

Ditch Plains has always been one of my favorites in NYC. Mostly because of the bartender Rob but supported with good food and booze. Fun for either a quick pint or dinner with friends

If you love hot dogs and mac n cheese. You have to try this place. Home made hot dogs, home made mac n cheese. Put them together in a bun, and you have a great, unique dish. Try it, you will love it.

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.
Without the traditional city grid layout, it’s easy to
get lost here, but that’s part of the fun as you
