Great place to eat
I found this great little hole in the wall to eat as long as you get there before 7 because then it gets crowded. It is Bianca's on Bleeker St. It is a little crowded with tables but the food is absolutly amazing and the prices are about as good as the food. I went on a date there with someone who had never been to NY before and she was very impressed with it as well. Even though we did not drink any wine they have a great selection. I would recomend it to anyone.
Bianca was a Manhattan board favorite about two or three years ago, but it hasn't gotten much mention recently. I went once and had the fried artichoke appetizer and a seafood pasta. Both were okay. The artichokes were pretty greasy, and the pasta a bit leaden (too much butter, perhaps). It is cheap, though, for the amount of food and the quality of the ingredients. I haven't returned because it was so packed and loud - not a very relaxing place at all.
