East Village Bars, Restaurants and Pizza Joints

Description

“Mixology at its finest” is the draw at this “edgy” East Village speakeasy, a “super-dark”, no-standing hideaway offering “memorable” drinks served by a “pleasant” crew; even though it can be “a pain to get in” and it's “not cheap”, the payoff is “unique”, only-in-NY drinking. --Zagat

Description

“Barber by day, bar by night” sums up this “unique” East Villager, a men's haircutter proffering a flat-rate trim-and-a-drink deal till 9 PM, when snipping yields to “speakeasy-ness” as a “secret bar” in the back room starts pouring “creative” cocktails; since word's out and it gets “overcrowded”, insiders let their hair down on “off nights.” --Zagat

Description

Primo “people-watching” abounds at this “fun”, all-day Bowery Hotel Italian that lures “scenesters” with a “romantic”, “country-chic” setting festooned with “hundreds of candles”, plus a sidewalk patio; “tasty” fare, “attentive service” and “fair prices” make the “no-rez” policy (except for hotel guests) less of a drag. --Zagat

Description

Accessed through a phone booth in Crif Dogs, this speakeasy-style East Village lair features bartending “experts” who whip up “fancy concoctions” (at “fancy prices”) in “intimate”, “taxidermied” digs; the initials stand for 'Please Don't Tell', but since “everyone's been told”, it's best to make advance reservations. --Zagat

Description

“Casually elegant” and “expensively” priced, this bamboo-lined East Village Japanese slices a “flawless symphony” of “incredibly fresh fish”; for best results, insiders “sit at the sushi bar” and go the omakase route, though no matter where you land, owners Jack and Grace Lamb “really take care of you.” --Zagat
