So many choices- Any suggestions for lunch near Astor Place/East Village? Both eat-in and take-out! Thanks in advance...

  1. I work in the area, here is my list:

    Atlas Cafe
    Dosa Cart
    Blue 9 Burger
    Coffee Master (e. 4th street)
    Nickys Vietnamese Sanwiches (bit of a walk)
    Burritoville & Chipotle

    There is always 6th street for Indian, and a bunch of places on St. Marks.

    happy eating!

    1. Chickpea
      6th St for Indian
      99 Miles to Philly
      Pizza Mercato

      1. Also, Grand Sichuan St. Marks, Cafe Mogador, Teresa's, Little Poland, and Menkui Tei (their ramen is just OK to me, but their gyozas are excellent).

        1. re: Pan

          What was excellent about their gyoza? Maybe they changed? Last time I tried them they tasted fresh from the freezer?

            When I've had them, they've been very tasty (sort of tangy) and crispy.

        2. The East Village has got to be the best place in Manhattan for good eats.

          Cafe Zaiya
          Cafe Orlin
          Little Poland, Veselka, Christine's
          Caracas Arepa Bar
          Rai Rai Ken

          1. Karen's of Astor is right there!! Great sandwiches and soups, love the veggie chillie.
            Wichcraft on 8th between broadway and University. A few doors down is Au Bon Pan, which actually does have good soup and breads, and is very quick.
