Since it was mid-winter break, the cafe was unexpectedly crowded mid-week. The place was filled with hipsters except for another older man & me. LOL. My son & I were seated within 10 mins of our arrival. Thank god we made rsrvns so that we didn't have to join the long queue. The waiter informed us that they were already out of 3 dishes. And so we ordered steak & eggs as well as the Norwegian Benedict platter. The food was seasoned & prepared perfectly. The service was good & quick in spite of the large crowd. The waitress was accommodating & attentive --- and we think that she is the only server here! Highly recommend for the good food & service in this far-East Village restaurant. More

Amazing experience. A bit on the loud side but my significant other and I aren’t uptight individuals. I set up a brunch to show him my random appreciation and decided on POCO. We both love to have fun & appreciate bottomless drinks so it was a no brainer. A lot of people were celebrating their birthdays in the basement where we were seated so it was, like i said, loud. But nothing uncomfortable. They were loud for good reason.. a celebration of life and amazing food and amazing drinks so we joined in countless time! Our server Angel, was absolutely amazing. We couldn’t get over how attentive she was to us and how although she had other large tables to assist, she never forgot about us. When we needed her, she was there and when we just wanted privacy, she let us be. I think probably the best waitress I’ve ever had. Enjoyed the experience and will for sure be back soon!

Hecho en Dumbo is one of our regular restaurants when in the area of The Public Theater or Cooper Union. Great Mexico City cuisine and friendly service (albeit sometimes a bit slow). We usually start with the guacamole and the queso fundido with roasted poblano peppers (very flavorful but not spicy although they can adjust that.) Both delicious. This time we split two other dishes: Flautas de Res (Braised shredded beef rolled into crisp corn tortillas with house-made sour cream, crumbled cheese, lettuce, salsa verde) and a plate of three tacos (we got Tacos de Costilla [Grilled steak short rib with chopped onion & cilantro] and Tacos de Chorizo Verde [Vegan seitan green chorizo, potato, cactus salad.]) Yum! For dessert we always get the tres leches cake, which is very good although admittedly not the absolute best we've ever had. They have a good selection of beer - both on tap and bottled. And a modest wine list and full bar. TIP: Happy Hour starts at 5:00. A selection of regular appetizers are available at very low prices if ordered during happy hour. We get there at 5, order the apps, and then order the rest of dinner when the full kitchen opens at 5:30! About 1/4 mile from The Public Theater; just about a four-minute walk. They also do chef's dinners for groups at a section in the back of the restaurant. Highly recommended. More

Japanese | East Village, Manhattan

My boyfriend and I discovered this place last summer and it has become both of our favorite restaurants for whenever we just want to eat amazing food. I crave their curry doria and chicken nanban--to the point that I've tried recreating at home from recipes I found online. But they're unbeatable. Not to mention, I love their "sour" drinks. It's a highball (shochu, soda water, ice) mixed with fresh citrus juice that they squeeze right in front of you. Nothing could be more refreshing! It's not a cheap meal, but it's not terribly expensive either. Last time I went with three others, we ordered probably 10 dishes, each getting 1-2 drinks, and it was $40 per person. More

Discover East Village

The East Village was once the heart of New York counterculture. Poets, artists, punk rockers and people who lived against the grain gravitated to St. Mark’s Place, perhaps the most well-known street neighboring Tompkins Square Park. Today, the original character of the place remains, but there’s an abundance of trendy eateries and fast-casual restaurants that take some of the edge out of the place. Still, charming tiny restaurants serving upscale, rustic fare add dimension to the multilayered neighborhood.
