LES, thrifty and romantic
so where would the hounders go on a sunday afternoon, LES or east village vicinity for drinks and dessert or just a slow tawdry lunch? any and all suggestions welcome!
I really like La Palapa on St. Marks. Higher end Mexican in a nice room. Great food and drinks.
Lucien is fun in the afternoon...it's not thrifty but not too expensive...you could drink some wine and snack on endive salad and escargot or split an entree, or some chocolate cake...
you're probably looking for something like Pink Pony - ludlow b/t houston and stanton. its related to lucien. the food is so so but you can hang out forever, have a glass of wine, a bite, dessert...
my brunch picks in the area are:
Le Jardin Bistro (french) - centre st (lafayette) b/t spring and kenmare
Supper (italian) - 2nd st at ave A
Freemans (new american) - freeman's alley (rivington) b/t bowery and chrystie, though it can get very crowded
