We were in NYC for the weekend and stopped by this restaurant and sat outside. We had $4 Sangrias and the $10 hamburgers. The service was good, but the food was great. Would highly recommend for happy hour.

In the mood for couscous and we have been here before. The food is very good but the portions are not huge. If you want an extra bowl of couscous, be prepared to pay. Knowing how inexpensive this grain is, it is highway robbery when...More

This is a great little restaurant on 2nd Avenue's restaurant row. Good selection of meat dishes and the vegetarian falafel sandwich is very good. Full bar, good service and both indoor and outdoor seating. Highly recommend.

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
