9/23/16 – Decided to have a fast trip to NYC for the love of my life’s birthday. We stayed in the East Village. My guess is not many visitors pick this part of the city to stay in, I will tell you they are missing out.
There are several restaurants and bars in the area (McSorleys, a must for any first time visitor). Walking to the more popular west village takes only 15 to 20 minutes.
Upon arriving we went to lunch at B Bar and grill located on 40 east 4th street. The food was very good and the atmosphere was very relaxing. Nice outdoor garden to eat and relax after a long drive.
