This casual Greenwich Village spot on MacDougal Street makes reliable Ethiopian food like spongy-sour injera, red lentils, berbere-spiced doro wot, and minced collards. We like to order a combo platter here, which costs $16.95 and comes with five different meaty stews and vegetable sides. But if you’re eating with someone else, get a couple of crispy fried sambusas too.

Waiting in a line outside of any restaurant seems a bit silly to us, but Tomoe is arguably one of the best sushi restaurants in the city, as you will see by those patiently standing single file out front on most nights. And it certainly isn't the atmosphere that's got people queued up on Thompson Street. The place is a dump.
El Toro Blanco
El Toro Blanco is a trendy spot that’s Perfect For some Action At The Bar and a slightly less Raucous Party Atmosphere than you’d get a few avenues over in the Meat Packing District. The food just isn’t all that good.
Tokyo Record Bar
Tokyo Record Bar is a basement in Greenwich Village where you eat a seven-course tasting menu and request songs from their vinyl collection.
