Post-Movie Bite in East Village?

  • 9

My wife and I are seeing a movie in the East Village.

As relatively new parents, we've been homebound (and out of the "dining scene") lately, so we'd appreciate any suggestions for a good place to go post-movie. Ideally someplace good, relatively quick, and somewhat unique. We'll be looking to eat at 9:30 or so.

  1. if you like korean food, there's dosirak on 13th between broadway and university. it's a small, cute place, and one i like for village east/cinema village visits.

    1. We're going to be down at the Sunshine theater on Houston, as it turns out - anyone have thoughts re: momofuku? I've heard good things, but am not sure if I can deal with what seems to be a mob scene.

      1. If you're going to Sunshine, I'd head stay in the immediate area, plenty of options there. I'd suggest Schillers, Supper, Degustation, Tasting Room... Lots of options within 5 blocks.
        Have a great time out & enjoy!

        1. Gosh, the first name I think of of a uniquely great and relatively quick (except for waiting on line) meal near the Sunshine is a pastrami sandwich at Katz's!

          1. Definitely try Momofuku. If the wait is too long, you can walk down the street to Hearth.

              I'm not sure you can get a seating if you just walk in at Hearth.

                If no tables are available at Hearth, there is bar dining. (Note: I'm not referring to the 4 seats at the pass.)

                  It's not reservations-only, but yes, there is always a chance of a wait.

              2. If you want ramen without the wait and fuss of Momofuku I'd recommend Minca, it's on 5th between A and B. Really good ramen and no attitude or wait (usually)
