Manousheh is a small takeout restaurant in Greenwich Village that specializes in Lebanese flatbreads (manousheh). There are plenty of meat and vegetable toppings, but we recommend the ground lamb and hummus. This place is open all day, so grab one at lunch (best enjoyed while sitting in Washington Square Park), or to coat your stomach before a night of drinking.

We love Piccolo Angolo because it’s the antithesis of every other restaurant within walking distance. There is nothing cool or buzzworthy happening here, just really good, classic Italian food that will make you happy and probably very fat.

Quick, specialty fast foods are something lower Manhattan now thrives on, and Tortaria deserves to be mentioned alongside their fellow low-cost, high-reward brethren. There’s a Mexican sandwich and a taquito for every palate.

This Grey Dog location is large and spacious - it’s an easy spot for a coffee and a decent sandwich in Chelsea.
