For beach-shack/living-room vibes and a big selection of Mediterranean/American/Tex-Mex bar food (the breakfast tacos are actually pretty good), check out Forgtmenot. It’s on the lower (and cooler) part of the Lower East Side and they’re missing an “e” in their name, so you know you should be drinking here. The space is small and casual, and it’s right next to its sister restaurant, Kiki’s.
