Request: Dinner with friends in the East Village
|Guacamole Trio, Mercadito|
2. Supper 156 East 2nd Street nr. Avenue A Delish, lively Italian restaurant that isn't on the major $$$$ side. Great wine list and fun atmosphere. The restaurant has a back room and lounge area to accommodate larger groups. Make sure to save room for dessert!
3. The Toucan & The Lion 342 E. 6th Street nr. First Ave. This is a newcomer and it's getting a lot of buzz so book immediately if you're planning on taking part! It's an Asian gastropub and boy is the food yummy! When I was there, we ordered a bunch of small plates which is especially great for a larger party. Their menu is really diverse, but if you like burgers, you must get one for everyone to try!
