Tiny’s Giant is a small, bright, all-day spot on the LES best known for meat-heavy sandwiches. The one with turkey, bacon, and spicy mayo is a good lunch option, and the smaller size of that should fill you up without forcing you to move your keyboard so you can nap at your desk. If you want something lighter, they also have salads that feature many of the same sandwich fillings over huge piles of greens. Our go-to is the one that comes with a bunch of different vegetables and cheeses, plus avocado and chickpeas. Add grilled chicken and you’ll have more than enough to share with a friend.

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.
The Late Late
The Late Late is a bi-level bar on the Lower East Side with a subtle Irish theme and a lively basement on weekends.
CloudM Rooftop Bar
CloudM is the rooftop at the CitizenM Hotel on the LES. It isn’t the coolest rooftop in the world, but it has a great view, and it stays pretty quiet.

Hartbreakers is a casual vegan spot in Bushwick where you can get a good fried “chicken” sandwich and a side of waffle fries.
Salt & Fat
We wanted to love Sunnyside's Salt & Fat more than we actually did. Every dish on the menu reads like a carnivore’s delight, and while some items are incredible, others completely miss the mark.
