Manhattan – East Village
The Bowery Hotel, 335 Bowery at 3rd St

This eatery from Eric Goode and Sean McPherson (their first venture following the ubersuccessful Waverly Inn) proves exceptionally time efficient. One trip to this aspiring hot spot saves visits to a handful of its ilk, which for some reason, pack "em in. Along with impressionable hordes of single women, gay men and sugar-daddy dates, you can suffer the unimaginative menu--crudi (scallops and black truffle, yellowfin tuna and citrus), antipasti (crostini with basil and acidless tomatoes, textbook fritto misto), pastas (orecchiette and broccoli rabe) and mains (a hideously sinewy veal chop)--with often-dismal execution. Atop Gemma"s menu is a Latin motto that translates to "a grain of salt." Which is exactly how diners should take this latest version of Goode-McPherson fabulousness.
