Manhattan – East Village
109 Ave A at 7th St
Manhattan, NY 10009
It"s not great food. It"s not even good food fast, but this prime people-watching spot is open 24/7--so you"re sure to enjoy the dinerlike offerings at some point during the day. Mornings, you"ll see scrambled Alphabet City kids recovering from the night before; come nighttime, that same clientele is back, on their way to bleary. The plates in front of them include decent burger selections (the Tompkins Park burger is topped with a mess of black-bean chili, onion and cilantro) and everything-and-then-some pastas such as tortellini with sun-dried tomato, spinach and smoked mozzarella in a lemon-garlic olive oil. You"ll get your food and your check, but that"s about it; the staff is as indifferent as they come.
