1- Ippudo

Ever dreamed of seeing the complex making-of ramen? Your dream has come true! At Ippudo, the open kitchen allows for you to see what the chefs are doing at all times and ables you to see every step taken into delivering one of New York’s finest ramen experience to your plate. Ippudo is truly a must for any Asian food enthusiast as well as Ramen lover!

2- Hearth

403 East 12th Street
This unique Italian restaurant by Marco Canora builds its menu around the fattest meat cuts as well as celebrating the importance of the vegetable and meat duality. Many main plates are to be shared with 2+ people due to their large portions but be not afraid, even those with small appetites will find themselves feasting at the incredible culinary experience that Hearth delivers.

3- Hasaki

210 East 9th Street
Opened in 1984, Hasaki remains one of the most renown spots for the freshest and highest quality sashimi in Manhattan. Part of the high class T.I.C. Restaurant Group, Hasaki will guarantee a sensory experience of sushi tasting like no other. It’s small intimate interior with sleek design and personal touch will make you feel like the entire sushi experience has been tailored for you and only you. This is an absolute hidden gem in the East Village.

4- Abraço

81 East 7th Street
Although primarily frequented for being a coffee spot and a subtle Aperitivo bar later at night, Abraço remains a go-to spot for many East Village neighbors due to their consistently delicious espressos and small savory plates. Their Pain Perdu and Apple Cranberry Cakes are our favorites! Its large interior allows for a bustling ambiance and the terrace allows for a casual setting later on during the day.

5- Death & Co

433 East 6th Street
Although it isn’t exactly a food spot, we decided to put it in the top 5 because it’s one of the hidden gems of East Village you can’t pass up on. A cool, hip and hidden away cocktail bar with unique cocktail variations and wild atmospheres, this is a must go to if you’re ever in the neighborhood. Did we mention they’ve won multiple awards for their amazing cocktails and continue to be countlessly featured for their style and coolness?
