East Village Eats

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

Aurora

When I started this blog just over 3 years ago I chose (what I thought was) a clever name and planned to review the area that I live in solely, but there’s so much great food in this, the most amazing of cities, that I’d be doing everyone a disservice if I didn’t branch out […]

The Meatball Factory (Closed)

Meatballs seem to be ‘trending’ right now, so when I got an invite from McKenzie of MMMGuide to sample some of the food at The Meatball Factory, she didn’t have to ask me twice.  The ‘Factory’  opened about 3 months ago & serves salad, pizzas, fettuccine & obviously meatballs.

Manzo

As part of my first visit to Eataly a few weeks ago, I stumbled on Manzo & decided to get some lunch.  There are a bunch of restaurants in the sprawling store, but this one really caught my eye.  Manzo means ‘Beef’ in Italian, so by the name & the logo, you can guess what’s […]

Eataly

Luckily Hurricane Irene had everyone running scared this weekend, so I decided to head there on Monday in the hope that it would be pretty empty.  Even though they were celebrating their 1 year anniversary with deep discounts on 44 items in […]

I’ve been watching this space for quite some time so I finally decided to bite the bullet & went for dinner on my Dad’s birthday.  It was a Wednesday at 8:30 and the place was already packed.  We got a seat in the corner by the window & started studying the menu.  It’s not particularly […]

Gemma

I’m always up for a free meal, so when my buddy Todd called me & said that he was going to Gemma (335 Bowery at 3rd street in the Bowery Hotel) on his boss’ dime, I didn’t hesitate.  I’ve been wanting to go here for some time, I remember when the space was a filthy […]

Frank Restaurant

I’ve been going to Frank Restaurant for some time now, but I’ve never gotten around to blogging the restaurant.  On a warm afternoon I returned with a few friends & my camera in tow. We sat by the bar & began by ordering some Antipasto; Olives with oil, spices & orange zest, hearty bread, sausage […]
