I truly wanted to give B&H Dairy 5 stars, but on my first visit, they merited only 3. I grew up going to Ratner's on Delancey Street from the 1950s until they closed. I have been dreaming of Ratner's vegetable cutlets with mushroom sauce and...More

Nothing I love more than a little hole in the wall with a great atmosphere and delish food. Lots of regulars. I just wish it was in my neighborhood--I'd be one too!

One of the remaining authentic east village places. Survived the explosion down the block. Great food and great people in an old style atmosphere.

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
