This casual Greenwich Village spot on MacDougal Street makes reliable Ethiopian food like spongy-sour injera, red lentils, berbere-spiced doro wot, and minced collards. We like to order a combo platter here, which costs $16.95 and comes with five different meaty stews and vegetable sides. But if you’re eating with someone else, get a couple of crispy fried sambusas too.

Mermaid Oyster Bar
We love the Mermaid restaurants, but an oyster bar? I guess fifteen or so varieties qualify you, but we were hoping for a deeper raw bar and a little more excitement. Where's the oyster inspiration?
The Malt House
The Malt House is one of the least-worst pubs in Greenwich Village. If you’re in the area, and you need a beer and some french fries, stop in.
El Toro Blanco
El Toro Blanco is a trendy spot that’s Perfect For some Action At The Bar and a slightly less Raucous Party Atmosphere than you’d get a few avenues over in the Meat Packing District. The food just isn’t all that good.
