100 Reasons to Eat and Drink Downtown Today (and Tomorrow, and the Day After That)
Pulqueria. Because there aren't a whole lot of places for us to find the milky alcohol made from the fermented sap of the agave plant. Eh?
Bennie's. Because you're not fooled by the Wall Street crowd -- and you know there's excellent Thai food to be found here.
Aldea. Because George Mendes cooks beautiful, modern Portuguese food with heart and soul.
Eisenberg's Sandwich Shop. There are few better counters to belly up against for a bowl of matzoh ball soup.
The Cellar at Beecher's. For the hearty, simple cooking that's all about pleasing the curd nerds.
Momokawa. Because it's a taste of Kyoto in Kips Bay.
Manzo. Because this Italian restaurant inside Eataly is far more delicious than it needs to be.
En Japanese Brasserie. Fresh, wobbly, tofu. Made every hour or so and served warm.
Annisa. Because Anita Lo's West Village restaurant just gets better with each passing year.
Kin Shop. Because Harold Dieterle's modern Thai is way more nuanced and complex than Top Chef.
