Restaurants in Lower East Side, NY


Recommended by Our Experts

Barrio Chino

Barrio Chino

New York, NY

I'm Mexican and from California, so I know what's good, authentic Mexican food. Barrio Chino is all of that and more. Their salsas are spicy. Love the Enchiladas Verdes, Pollito Asado, Tacos de asada, and Guacamole. Get there early or late, there is always a line.

Cake Shop

Cake Shop

New York, NY

Visit the cake shop to buy a latte, record, and attend a rock and roll show in the basement. Shows 5 nights a week. This is a great place to see your favorite I indie band.

Baohaus

Baohaus

New York, NY

Late night munchies? Go here! Savory bao prepared fresh and best paired with taro fries. The coffin bao is my personal fave, made with fried chicken and chili condensed milk.

Yunnan Kitchen

Yunnan Kitchen

New York, NY

So it may not be authentic Yunnan fare, but the food is good. Recs: the tofu ribbon salad and the spicy chicken. The Crossing Over Bridge Noodles is another one of their signature. It's assembled and mixed in at the table.
