    East Village

    Cuisine: Vegan

Since 1999, the mostly raw foods spot has been enabling diners to indulge in a wide variety of good-for-you options. We dig the Peters Pot, a delightfully bright and creamy sundried tomato, yellow bell pepper, and cucumber soup; or the unique twist on a classic Caesar salad, featuring caramelized onions and avocado.

    NoHo

    Cuisine: Italian, Mediterranean

    $$

    For six years and counting, this popular subterranean, Mediterranean cafe has lured loyal patrons with fresh-ingredient-driven, farm-to-table fare. Some of the family-style dishes look almost too pretty to eat—until you give in and have a taste, and then you just can’t stop yourself. READ REVIEW
