Restaurants in East Village
Mexico City—born chef Patricio Sandoval reinterprets traditional Mexican cuisine using local ingredients at this East Village taqueria.
Styled after an old farmhouse, this restaurant on East 10th Street sports a wood-framed exterior with a green awning, providing a rather subtle introduction to what regulars have identified as one of the East Village's dining standards.
Even those not in the neighborhood don't mind the trek over to the East Village for the ultra-thin crust of Gruppo’s pies. A simple red awning with the restaurant’s name beckons those off Ave. B into the low-lit dining room with exposed brick walls and wooden tables, typical of a pizzeria.
The original Il Buco a block away started life as an antique shop and evolved into a homey, well-loved trattoria.
