Top 3 Restaurants In Greenwich Village

Greenwich Village, home to indie artists, musicians, New York University students and, of course, what I like to call, the hidden food treasures of the Village. Take a walk around Washington Square Park during the morning, grab a coffee at one of the various coffee shops in the Village, and let me show you the best places to eat when dinner time arrives. MacDougal and Bleecker street are kings of late night dines and guilty-pleasure foods. Like all kingdoms, the real treasures are hidden behind the dark and grimy facades that most restaurants on this street are attributed to. This guide is to help you differentiate the real hole in the wall gems.


Masala Times

Cross the intersection of MacDougal and Bleecker Street and you’ll find one of the most raved about places by customers, Masala Times, a quick and delicious place to find authentic Indian food like their nice and spicy Chicken Tikka, their unique Pav Bhaji, and raved about Paneer Tikka. Opened until the early hours of the morning like other restaurants on MacDougal, Masala Times offers a variety of vegetarian options as well as options for meat lovers. The restaurant welcomes customers with their bright yellow canopy with their slogan, “Very spicy. Very Bollywood” displayed proudly in bright red lettering.

Situated right across the street from Masala Times is Manousheh, a Lebanese bakery that takes its inspirations from Beirut, the capital and largest city of Lebanon. A Manousheh is actually a staple breakfast food, known similarly to a flatbread in the U.S. Aside from traditional toppings like thyme, cheese, and beef, it also offers vegetarian and dessert versions using Nutella and a sesame base spread. Refreshing beverages like cafe blanc, mint tea, and Lebanese coffee are also available to accompany your meal. According to its website, “Our hope is to create a cozy environment where those who have never been to Lebanon leave our space with the goal of visiting, and for those who have been, to leave feeling like they just had a real taste of Beirut”.
