100 Reasons to Eat and Drink Downtown Today (and Tomorrow, and the Day After That)
Mission Chinese Food. Go for Danny Bowien's particularly hot and delicious style of modern Chinese food.
A Voce. Because Missy Robbins' sophisticated Italian food is so on point.
Milk Bar Crack. Pie.
Cómodo. Because Tamy Rofe and Felipe Donnelly make dinner feel like a dinner party.
Goat Town. Because this under-the-radar East Village bistro was the winner of our Best Restaurant award last year.
The Rusty Knot. Flooded during Sandy, but risen again. It's always a good time for a cocktail at this nautical-themed bar.
Royal Seafood. Simply some of the city's best and cheapest dim sum, in a Cantonese seafooder.
Yunnan Kitchen. Because Travis Post pays respects to Yunnan at this hip little spot on Clinton Street.
Corsino. Because there aren't enough chill, neighborhood Italian spots serving excellent food at reasonable prices.
15 East. It's always a good time to revisit one of the most elegant Japanese restaurants in the city.
