[Photo via here Look, no Ludlow building!]

After last week's top-10 East Village eateries list... Fork in Road today puts out its top-10 list for the Lower East Side....

10. Congee Village (Cantonese), 100 Allen Street, 212-941-1818

9. Clinton Street Baking Company (American), 4 Clinton Street, 646-602-6263

8. Alias (New American), 76 Clinton Street, 212-505-5011

No Odessa! Why you *&^%*#%*&^3! (Ha! Kidding!)

Anyway, dunno if I have the energy to debate another list! In any event, I always like Rebecca Marx's work, so I have to trust her on some of these... Plus, I've only eater at three of these places... and I have a horrible bias against Clinton Street Baking Company purely based on the crowd waiting to get in on weekend mornings...


As you may recall, last Friday (and into the weekend), there was some debate hereabouts over Robert Sietsema's top-10 East Village eateries listicle... The choices are also prompting some healthy discussion at Chowhound too... (Via Eater)

Ooo, I love the Stage. Good corned beef hash...and you can't beat the atmosphere.

The Sidewalk actually has pretty good food, in my opinion.

EV Grieve said...

I actually haven't eaten at Sidewalk in some time. Drinks, yes! I always did like the food there.

Go for lunch on a Friday afternoon when it's empty and there are 2-4-1 drinks...wasabi mashed potatoes FTW.

viva la stage... they could never, ever, ever build one like this today, no matter how much renovation and salvaging and money they have... and keep the prices reasonable too! think about it - it would be mission impossible..

I like Sidewalk's banana nut pancakes--they are light and really good. The rest of their food is good too.
