B&H Dairy is the kind of place you go if you want to feel like a New Yorker. Not a lived-here-for-three-years New Yorker, but a guy reading a newspaper in a diner in an ’80s cop movie New Yorker. Sit at the one long counter and order from the guy who makes your food. The breakfast and lunch menus are extensive, but you can’t go wrong with one of the soups or giant sandwiches. Feel free to bring your own newspaper and tattered hat.

The hottest new restaurant concept in the East Village serves one thing: soup broth. And we're pretty convinced it's a brilliant, elaborate hoax.
Miss Lily’s 7A Cafe
Miss Lily’s is basically the Jamaican Cracker Barrel, the way they’re expanding. That’s a good thing. We love Cracker Barrel.
The Mermaid Inn
A staple in the Infatuation playbook since back in 2003 when we were standing in line outside of terrible Manhattan night clubs and listening to nothing but Brand New and 50 Cent. The fish here is always fresh and fantastic, and the lobster roll is very solid.

Gertie is an attractive all-day spot in Williamsburg, and it’s a great place to eat breakfast or brunch and pretend you’re living in a PBS cartoon.
High Street on Hudson
High Street on Hudson is a Philly import in the West Village that will happily make you a sandwich or a bowl of tripe. You should have both.
Suggested by our writers
Sometimes you don’t want brunch. Sometimes you want breakfast at noon. There’s a difference. La Bonbonniere is a Village safe haven from all things hollandaise, and one of the best true breakfast joints in town.
A local Infatuation mainstay, Esperanto’s got that little something special that that’s kept it in heavy rotation since before Ave. C was cool.
