East Village Eats

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

Brunch At Spina

I’ll admit that I don’t often go to Italian restaurants for brunch (no particular reason), but after my first outing to Spina (review here) & the excellent food we had, I was willing to give it a try.  I arrived with two friends late on a Sunday, in fact we were the only ones left […]

Toucan & The Lion Revisited

I first visited back in December (review) and tried a few dishes from what I thought was the full menu.  It turns out that that was just the tip of the iceberg & the complete menu is now in full swing.  Not much has changed, but there are now 8 shared plates, 5 mains, 5 sides & a […]

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 […]

Jane Revisited

My first visit to Jane back in January was pretty good, so I jumped at the chance to check the place out again for brunch recently.  A friend was celebrating his birthday & there was 11 of us in total, meaning that I’d be able to see more of the menu.  Given that we were […]

Kafana Revisited

I reviewed Kafana for the first time about a year ago & it has become a place that I eat at regularly.  I’ll admit that I didn’t know much about Serbian food back then & I feel like I’m in a better position to talk about the dishes there.  The restaurant serves up a lot […]

Desnuda Revisited

Is it possible for a restaurant to do a complete u-turn?  Can a leopard change it’s spots?  Honestly, I would have answered no, but I’ve been proven wrong.  After the debacle that was my first visit to Desnuda (recounted here), I reluctantly returned this weekend. It was a Sunday, so the dollar oysters that had […]

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 […]

Petite Abeille Revisited

After the amazing meal my family had at Petite Abeille (401 East 20th Street at 1st Avenue) last summer, I decided to go back on with my mother on a lazy Saturday.  As soon as we entered the restaurant, I could feel a change in the vibe from our previous visit.  There were strollers everywhere […]

Zum Schneider Revisited

I poke fun at Zum Schneider (107 Avenue C @ 7th Street) quite a bit due to the noise it generates, massive lines, Oktoberfest Madness & the ‘popped collar’ brunch crowd, but I will admit that I love that place. I live just around the corner on 7th Street & with the weather warming up, […]
