I hesitate to recommend Joseph Leonard in the West Village only because it is out of character for my typical cheap and easy suggestions. But Joseph Leonard is beyond any other tiny little eatery you've ever come across. With amazing daily specials, and a fabulous bar culture, the "no reservations" rule is easily excusable. Its worth the wait for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Check it out this weekend with a friend, date, or food savvy crew.
Take a trip to the West Village, yet again, and fine yourself at Sucre boutique on Bleecker St., home of some of the most unique and fun jewelry I have found in NYC. Pick up these cute rings for $69 each, and be sure to check out the stores specially sourced vintage engagement rings. They are to die for.
Union Pool is a tough one to spot, but if you listen/look carefully, you can detect the BK hipster vibes nearly instantly. This chill and laid back bar hang is in Williamsburg, and even has a taco truck inside to provide for your taco needs while knocking back craft beers and talking about hipster things with hipster people. Go explore and enjoy!
