  • Maison Kayser

    1

    Bakery

    french bakery, direct from paris. you may already have discovered it for yourself. i'm happy just to walk away with a baguette and enjoy it in the nearby park.

  • Idlewild Books

    2

    Bookstore

    until 1963, JFK international airport was named Idlewild, and this is where this bookstore takes its name. travel-related, but not limited to travel books.

  • Bedford Cheese Shop

    3

    Cheese Shop

    you may have very well discovered it already. enthusiastic staff and as would be expected, a wide variety of cheeses! also, an educational facility on site.

  • Ippudo

    4

    Ramen

    you'll end up debating the best ramen places until the day you leave new york. ippudo is almost always crowded, but it's also always good, lively, and vibrant.

  • Sunrise Mart

    5

    Grocery Store

    i go out of my way for sunrise mart for japanese groceries, fresh udon, ramen, and they have a decent supply of fresh fish, candies and teas. on second floor.

  • Angel’s Share

    6

    Speakeasy

    no groups larger than 4. go midweek, best when snowing, at window seat! it's too popular so who knows how long it will stay? enter through yokocho, go upstairs.

  • Jeepney Filipino Gastropub

    7

    Filipino

    a great, noisy, dingy filipino spot to get a meaty slab of pork to go with your side of pork. approved by pinoy friends though they say queens options are best.

  • Veniero’s Pasticceria & Caffe

    8

    Bakery

    beloved italian pastry shop with a café on the side. echoes of 1940s urban italy. crowded, informal, old-fashioned and may not be around for much longer.

  • B & H Dairy

    9

    Vegetarian / Vegan

    very, very old school jewish east village. you don't go for the food, though it's not bad (a bit greasy), but you go for a glimpse of an era that's fading fast.

  • Cafe Mogador

    10

    Moroccan

    another wonderful neighborhood spot. gets crowded on weekends. it's unpretentious comfort fare: tagines, roasted tomatoes with halloumi, couscous, egg dishes.

  • Zum Schneider

    11

    German

    i really only go here for brunch, maybe once or twice a year, unless there's a german football match i'd like to see. the farmer breakfast is by far my fave.

  • Video Games New York

    12

    Video Games

    part store, part museum: if you are searching for video game history, consoles, japanese imports, etc., then here you go. beware: lot of the items NOT FOR SALE.

  • Merchant's House Museum

    13

    History Museum

    from 1832, a multi-level home for events and exhibits about life in 19th century new york. fine garden in the back. interesting contrast to LE tenement museum.

  • Il Buco Alimentari & Vineria

    14

    Italian

    many lovely meals here. informal, modern though rustic italian space. small dishes, long meals, relaxed conversations. more formal sister restaurant next door.

  • Great Jones Spa

    15

    Spa

    i choose this over the Russian & Turkish Baths on 11th street. both places special, but great jones is calm. hot baths, cold dips, sauna, steam room. love it!
