east village restaurants
From NYToday's website...
The East Village has plenty of casual cafes, but few
offer outdoor gardens. Aunt B's, however, has lovely
outdoor seating, and a wide-ranging menu. The
offerings run the gamut from nachos supreme to corned
beef and cabbage, but the focus is on comfort food
like meatloaf, macaroni and cheese, and buttermilk

"The East Village has plenty of casual cafes, but few

That's crazy; at least half the "casual cafes" I know
of in the East Village have outdoor seating. I'm not so
sure you'd want to sit outside when it's 25° out (as it
was today), but maybe the waitresses will oblige you.
Try Yaffa (St. Mark's bet. 1st and A); they've got a
great garden in back and the waitresses there used to
wear a T-shirt that said, "Born to Serve".
