Interior and the bar
Cafecito is located out in the Alphabet City section of East Village. It’s a homey yet festive restaurant that focuses on very good Cuban food.

Some of the interior

Matilda is a small, family owned [...]
Meatball Factory (exterior), At the bar, Menu
A few nights ago I had dinner at The Meatball Factory with a friend. When I heard that this particular restaurant opened a couple of months ago, I initially dismissed it as another meatball restaurant who is chasing the popularity of its antecedent. I don’t [...]

Taken place on January 3, 2010.
Continuing on the Sunday food fest with Hagan (started with brunch at Public), I joined him later on the afternoon at Luke’s Lobster.
If you have read Hagan’s introduction about this stop earlier, I have indeed told him that I’m probably the last NYC-based food blogger who’s eaten their [...]
