The only complaint we have with the Momofuku empire is that they don't take reservations except for large groups. After the theater we walked to Ssam, on the corner of 13th and second, and were seated immediately. The food was terrific. We had a peach...More

David Chang can do no wrong. This restaurant is simple in decor and delicious in everything you eat. You HAVE to order the duck and the side of roasted corn. The corn is undeniably one of the best foods I've ever eaten. The chili and...More

You need to order the whole duck dinner ahead.....it is more than enough for 4 people at $140 between you plus drinks and tip. Fantastic duck - quite rare though, so be aware of this if you're not keen on rare meat. Service is efficient...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 neighbourhood feel that you can still
experience today thanks to a mix of locally-owned
shops, cozy restaurants, and lively bars. The scale of
the residential blocks makes this a wonderful place to
