    1. Chocolate Bar - retro chocolate/dessert spot (cheap-moderate)
      Cones - good ice cream spot (moderate)
      Cru - great wine list and food (pricey)
      Lassi - good Indian (especially their namesake drink; inexpensive)

      1. Try La Cantina for mid-priced Italian in an intimate setting.
        Its on 8th and Jane.

        For well made drinks and small bites Employees Only on Hudson and Christopher.

        For Rustic but formal French American try Mas off Varick on Bedford (I think).

        I agree with Mary's Fish Camp. One of my favorites.

        For Vegitarian bites and Coffee in a super casual atmosphere try S'Nice on 8th just south of 13th street.

        1. thanks guys! i'll definitely try your picks, as you have mentioned several places that i forgot to list that i like. esp. coffee shops - chocolate bar and s'nice. i also like doma - any other coffee shop recommendations?

          also, good delivery?

          1. corner bistro
            piccolo angolo
            johnny rockets (ha!)
            asalt & battery
            village den
            wai cafe
