Eclectic Village/Soho spot
it sounds like you know the east village rather well so
you should venture to the new hot area above 10th st.
there's lucca lounge between 13th &14th with really
affordable GREAT pizzas(and the owner Vito is a really
nice guy) on avenue b. then between 11th & 12th you'll
find radio perfecto ,cafe margeaux and my personal
favorite-aunt b's.and if you're into hearing real
good-real music go to lakeside lounge between 10th
&11th. all on avenue b. have fun!
I think Danal is wonderful for brunch if you can sit in the garden - the menu is interesting and they have beautiful china. Dinner is a big disappointment - the menu is not particularly exciting, and because of the low ceilings and open kitchen the air quickly becomes hot and heavy and oily.
