Recommendation for LES drinks/appetizers?

My husband and I are looking for a place to go tonight... preferably on the LES, Soho, or the village. We want someplace with good drinks (possibly mojitos) and appetizers. Suggestions?

  1. Freeman's would be a good place for mojitos and appetizers and also paladar, though I only had the mojitos and not the food there.

        1. re: jonnyk

          um, fourth. the mojitos at paladar are fantastic.

          if you do end up there, and get appetizers, please report back. other than surprisingly good fries, and the chips they give at the bar, i haven't eaten there in ages, and would love to hear folks' impressions.

          a block away is 'inoteca, a wine bar with great small plates. the much-lauded truffled egg toast is fantastic.

      1. Another suggestion. The Orchard on Orchard street ROCKS!!!!!!!!!

        1. jadis

          2 Rivington St (Cross Street: Between Eldrige Street and Forsyth Street)

          great food and wine

          1. You might want to check out cafe havana in SOHO i believe, sort of on teh $$ side but real good mojitos and good food, great grilled corn app

            1. Oh, you should try Creperie:
              135 Ludlow St, New York 10002
              Btwn Rivington & Stanton St

              Phone: 212-979-5543



              1. I'd second Jadis and add Bondi Beach for drinks & fish.

                1. You probably went where you wanted already, but a good choice to remember would be Death and Company, 433 East 6th. Great cocktails and snacks.
