East Village Eats

Honest & accurate restaurant and bar reviews from the East Village and surrounding areas.

Yuji Ramen (Closed)

A friend had been telling me about this place for a while —  I rarely shop at Whole Foods & had never been to the food court upstairs, but it seems that I have been missing out on a whole lot. Started as a pop-up in the back of a brooklyn bar, Yuji has been […]

Food News

Avenue C restaurants take a beating (NY Daily News) Percy’s Tavern owner robbed at gunpoint (EVGrieve) Kasadela starts fund to rebuild after Sandy (Grub Street) Veselka sued over broken tooth (Local East Village) Union Market opens on Avenue A & Houston (Bowery Boogie) Maiden Lane coming to former Life Cafe space (EVGrieve) Table Verte opens (Inside […]

Totto Ramen

It’s no real secret that I’m a huge Ramen fan, but I don’t often venture far out of the East Village.  A few weeks ago, I was going to a show at Terminal 5, so it was the perfect opportunity to head uptown & check out Totto Ramen.  I’ve heard horror stories about massive lines […]

Rai Rai Ken Expanding/Moving?

A friend passed by the former Teriyaki Boy on East 10th street yesterday to find Rai Rai Ken (review here) signage being installed.  There’s no news if they’re moving the current location or expanding (the new space is much larger).  More news as it comes in. Rai Rai Ken: 214 East 10th St. btwn. 1st & 2nd Avenue New […]

Kambi Ramen House Revisited

With the weather being so hellishly cold recently (don’t get me started on the snow), I thought it would be a good idea to take another look at Kambi Ramen House.  I know that Minca is much more centrally placed in the East Village & that the menus are basically the same, but Kambi does […]

Bond Street Revisited

I’ve been going to Bond Street for about 10 years now.  Opting for the downstairs lounge as friends of mine have worked there, I’ve always had a good time.  Not to be cheating on my East Village sushi mainstay, Takahachi, but Bond St. takes it to another level entirely.  My last two visits with my […]

Kasadela

Honestly, when I think of I traditional Japanese food in the East Village, Avenue C doesn’t immediately come to mind. I’d been a regular at the restaurant years ago & pretty much forgotten about it until last week.  Luckily the food is still as good as I remember. Nestled in an area where you’re more likely to […]

Yakiniku West Revisited

It’s been several months since I’ve been back to Yakinuki West (review here) so I decided to return with some friends & give the place another try.  After removing our shoes, we got a pretty sweet spot towards the back of the restaurant & ordered some beer.  I’ve been here several times before, so I […]

Takahachi Continues To Impress

I’ve never been shy about how much I love Takahachi, it’s by far my favorite spot in the East Village when I’m craving some fresh raw fish.  I’ve been going there pretty much ever since I moved to the East Village 10 years ago & it’s been the go to sushi spot for me & […]

M2M

Morning to Midnight, aka M2M, is a bright Asian supermarket packed full of lots of items that you would otherwise have to go to Chinatown or Koreatown to find.  Even if I really don’t need anything, I often find myself going into M2M just to browse the aisles and have a look around.  Before I […]
