This Tiny East Village Gem Is The Neighborhood's Best Kept Secret

Bad news! This plan has expired. Go check out some great new ideas here.


First up: dinner at tiny East Village gem, Le French Diner. With only three tables and 10 bar seats, this place is a best-kept secret for those who live in the neighborhood. Trust that whatever you order, the teeny kitchen in the back will churn out the best version you've ever had.

Close the night out with a hunt for an East Village speakeasy called Blue Quarter (we can't link to it because it doesn't even have a legit website. This is what's listed on their Google page). Here's what we can tell you: it's inside an unassuming restaurant, and once you arrive at the address, a man will likely come up to you and say "Blue Quarter?" and you'll say "Yes!" Then he will nod gravely and say, "Follow me." ...follow him. Once you step in, you'll find yourself entering a seemingly ancient, tiny, candlelit tomb. Once your squeeze in, make conversation with the friendly bartenders and ask them for a recommendation, and pat yourselves on the back for a successful mission.
