Ask friendly bar tender Juan to serve you a bichon frise with your creamy latte. It has a wonderful brunch and serves until late good French food.

When I first lived in NY, this was as reliable as a bumpy cab ride. And twenty years later, Late night, a good steak.

First of all, open 24 hours is super convenient. We ate there three times while we stayed at the nearby Larchmont Hotel. Their breakfast was especially great, and we also LOVED their seasonal offering of pumpkin ravioli.

Greenwich Village
Commonly known as “the Village” to New Yorkers, it was
here in Greenwich Village that both 1960’s counter
culture and the LGBT movement were born. Famous for
its bohemian past, head to Washington Square Park to
get a feel for this diverse and energetic
neighbourhood. You’ll find NYU students, street
performers, skateboarders, kids frolicking in the
fountain, and locals relaxing and playing chess.
