Maybe it’s the long name, or maybe it’s the fact that it’s all the way at the southern end of the Lower East Side, but Les Enfants de Boheme doesn’t seem to get too busy. So if you live in the neighborhood or ever find yourself looking for dinner on the Lower East Side, it’s a good place to know about. The food here is French-bistro-type stuff like mussels, steak, cheese, and salad - and it’s just slightly pricier than what you want to spend on, say, a Monday night. If you need a last-minute place to bring a date or eat with some friends on a Friday or Saturday, however, Les Enfants is a great option.

Spicy Village is not a romantic date spot. Unless styrofoam dishware gets you all hot and bothered. Take your friends, bring a bottle of wine, and prepare to spend $10 a piece on some delicious Chinese grub.
Mission Chinese Food
The Lower East Side location of Mission Chinese used to be a party. Now it feels like one that ended a while ago.

Eleven Madison Park
Fancy though it may be, Eleven Madison Park is surprisingly lively. But make no mistake, this is fine dining at its most serious.
Balthazar, you had a good 16-year run, but it’s time to step aside. Lafayette is now the quintessential French bistro of bustling downtown NYC.

Though the food at Bacaro is pretty good, it’s the kind of place you come to for the atmosphere.
