        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).

          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.

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

          Little Poland, Veselka, Christine's

            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.

              there's b&h dairy on 2nd ave btw st. mark's & 7th for wonderful soups, fabulous challah, and delicious overstuffed sandwiches. it's quick, has a great vibe, and is cheaper and 100000x tastier than a chain like au bon pain.

                I stopped into Acme on Great Jones off of Broadway and was pleasantly surprised. I was actually on my way to Mama's but didn't want to walk over that far.
