Please do yourself a favor and order the Blue Fin Tasting. It was all amazing beyond worth the value. The extensive Sake menu has something for even the most unenthusiastic sake goer.

Pizzeria | Lower East Side, Manhattan

Found this little gem on Open table and wanted local pizza. Small restaurant but the staff were amazing. Friendly, helpful with recommendations and spent time getting to know her visitors. We ask for breakfast recommendations and she gave us great tips and got exact addresses and directions for us without our asking. Just really went above and beyond. Also, the pizza was amazing. We did not order one for each as other reviews said they were big. We ended up ordering another for my son because he could easily eat a whole pizza (18 yr old ). We tried 3 different ones and all exceptional. The Knots were great for appetizer as well. Wine was good and reasonably priced per bottle. Will definitely return. More

I rated this a strong 4 because the decor is really nice, delicate and a nice feel of Greece! The service was great, the manager was very accommodating by helping us pick out the instagrammable spots inside! The souvlaki GR was delicious however I was still a little hungry after. The chicken lemon soup is not thick like most but rather a chicken noodle soup with lemon flavor. It was all a good value $$ wise. The restaurant got very crowded however we were not rushed out. We sat for close to two hours. I think I will go back for the outside seating. More

Indian | Lower East Side, Manhattan

The chicken was a bit tough, no not tough like biting a bullet, but like biting a LEGO, so nothing you would walk out over. The drinks without ice was a very European touch, except I don't think it was optional, seeing as my beer was warm, but not as warm as the wall paper, which was peeling in light of the A/C being out. I sat in the proximity of a Fordham girl, and preferred the open door sounds of two homeless fighting over a cigarette, to her asinine proclamations about the coming and going of her vapid life. I tried glaring at her to stone her into silence, and I had in my sling, ready should a tet-a-tet, "I thought low cut blouses were for showing cleavage," but alas, not even the Apocalypse would knock her from her dinner table podium and sermon on self. The owner was very nice. The food is pretty good. One of the better beater restaurants in NYC. There is a funny picture of the wall of a starving African, near poster proclaiming the restaurants commitment to funding the arts. It gives the impression that the starving African is why the arts are funded. Taking that one step further, and with all sarcasm intended, "I can't wait to see the bloated, belly little tike in a production of the Chekov's "The Seagull," yes, learning how to say lines was the answer to all of his problems.

Discover Lower East Side

The Lower East Side (LES) has experienced significant change over the past few decades. While aspects of the neighborhood’s historic Jewish roots remain, like Katz’s Deli and the Lower East Side Tenement Museum, recent college graduates and young professionals have contributed to the evolution of the area. Burgeoning art galleries, bars and tiny, trendy cafes are all a part of the Lower East Side today.
