  • Jimmy's No. 43
    43 E. 7th St., 212-982-3006
    Korzo Haus
    178 E. 7th St., 212-780-0181
    A bar that serves great food or a restaurant with a great selection of craft beers: either way, Jimmy's No. 43 is justly celebrated. This joint's slow-food attitude, manifested in such dishes as the bánh mì hot dog with Vietnamese slaw and chorizo tacos with sriracha mayo, makes a meal there an experience. (Note: every Thursday is oyster night.) In terms of beer, the $10 Tuesdays feature six three-ounce pours that are generally centered around a theme, like harvest ales or sour beer. An in-house expert is on hand to provide commentary. Just past Avenue A, meanwhile, Korzo Haus has a strong selection of house-brewed, local and European beers. In 2011, The Village Voice ranked its burger, which comes wrapped in Hungarian fried bread known as langoš, as one of the City's best, and meat eaters will find plenty to satisfy, including goulash and bratwurst. Vegetarians will be fine too, with such options as a walnut-and-black-eyed-pea patty or the halušky, soft potato noodles—a variation on a favorite childhood treat of the owners, who met as second graders in the former Czechoslovakia.
