Somethig Decent Near East 4th

tito Jan 19, 2014 05:10 AM

I am seeing a 7pm show at the NT Theatre Workshop on East 4th near 2nd Ave. I need a quick nibble before the show, I will have 45 minutes to an hour at best. I was thinking 'inoteca, but even a decent pizza place will do.

Any help is appreciated

    You'll be near so much. Zabb Elle. Soba Koh. Blue Ribbon Fried Chicken. Mighty Quinn's. Forcella.

      Great choices Coasts. I'll add Misoya Ramen, Caracas Arepa, Luke's Lobster, Maharlika, Lucien, Motorino ( but maybe a few blocks too far)

        I'll add Otto's Tacos (very quick and cheap—counter service)!

        I like the Mermaid Inn a lot, tito

        Unassuming from the front (and squished in among a bunch of other places), but really nice inside -nice for food, for drink and for ambiance.

        EDIT: coasts is certainly correct; there is an embarrassment of dining riches in that stretch of the EV.

            ln addition to all of the other fine recs here, Peel's might fit the bill, also Hecho en Dumbo, Forcella, Pulino's. Zabb Elee is my fave out of everything that folks have mentioned here.

                Perhaps Momofuku Ssam Bar if you can get seated right away.
