- - New York Real Estate Group Brief - -
Once in a blue moon the stars align and you find that perfect gem in NYC. This East Village Penthouse is just that - a 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom gem. The unit is roughly 1500 sq ft which would be the size of roughly five studios combined on the Upper East Side. The open kitchen and living room leads to a gorgeous and private balcony overlooking one of the cities most happening neighborhoods. The bathroom's comes equipped with abundant storage space and the hardwood floors only add to the elegance of this Penthouse!
Nowhere - 332 East 14th Street - A friendly, spacious bar, Nowhere attracts attitude-free crowds--and the place is filled with everyone from dykes to bears, thanks to a fun lineup of theme nights. The pool table's also a big draw.
Nublu - 62 Ave C - First-timers at this remote Alphabet City outpost will have to ask the smokers outside if they've come to the right place: Only a blue light marks the spot. Inside, a European crowd settles in for the equally Euro beer selection and for the offbeat jazz and avant-garde acts like owner Ilhan Ersahin's Wax Poetic. Excellent live Brazilian music and dancing are the draw on Wednesday nights. In summer, an exceedingly pleasant backyard garden eases the pressure on the small space.
Webster Hall - 125 E 11th St - A great-sounding alternative for bands (and fans) who've had their fill of the comparably sized Irving Plaza, Webster Hall is booked by Bowery Presents, the folks who run Bowery Ballroom and Mercury Lounge. Expect to find high-caliber indie acts (Animal Collective, Battles, the Gossip), but be sure to show up early if you want a decent view.
Back Forty - 190 Ave B - Chef-restaurateur Peter Hoffman (Savoy) is behind this seasonal-eats tavern, where farmhouse chic prevails in the dining room (vintage tools adorn the walls) and on the menu. Gastropub fare--like the pleasantly gamey grass-fed hamburger or pork jowl nuggets, frozen in a crisp jacket of batter--is uniformly solid. Veggies shine too: Baby cauliflower gratin is layered with leeks and Gruy?re, and the exemplary brussels sprouts are slicked with cherry butter and served with shallot.
Northern Spy Food Co. - 511 E 12th St - Part of the problem with eating well--healthfully, deliciously and environmentally correctly--is that it's expensive. Enter Northern Spy Food Co., a restaurant that serves locally sourced meals at reasonable prices (no dish costs more than $15). Chef Nathan Foot's frequently changing menu is based almost entirely on what's in season (Northern Spy is an apple indigenous to the Northeast). Rounding out the farm-to-table experience is a general store filled with locavore.
Prune - 54 E 1st St - Tiny, well-lit Prune is still as popular as it was the day it opened. Gabrielle Hamilton's French mother developed this fearless chef's palate early on: Expect creative dishes like Manila clams with hominy and smoked paprika butter, and roasted suckling pig with pickled tomatoes, black-eyed-pea salad and chipotle mayo. This is the area's go-to brunch spot, so beware: The wait for a table can stretch over an hour.
