Brunch at JoeDoe

I’m not really that big on traditional ‘bacon & egg’ brunches, but when a friend mentioned that JoeDoe (45 East 1st Street between 1st & 2nd Avenues) served duck eggs & not your typical bacon, I jumped at the chance to check it out.  Started 2 years ago by Chef Joe Dobias & partner Jill Schulster, Joe Doe is a small but inviting 25 seat restaurant with an open bar & a full liquor license.

Site News

You may have noticed the lack of posts recently, but I’ve been in the process from moving from the WordPress.com platform, to the self-hosted WordPress.org.  This will allow me to use Javascript, add videos & use other, more robust features.  All in all, this should improve the experience here at East Village Eats.  Hopefully I’ll be able to get a few posts in while the upgrade happens.  In the future, please go to http://www.eveats.com. Look for some exciting new changes in the near future…

Thanks for visiting.  -Jason

Casa Adela Shuttered by DOH

The Department of Health has continued their ‘onslaught’ of the East Village  & shuttered Pueroto Rican mainstay Casa Adela (66 Avenue C near 5th Street) two days ago.  As the sign indicates, the fridges were not at the proper temperature.  Hopefully they’ll sort this out soon & return to do what they do best; serving up amazing rotisserie chicken & rice & beans!

Marco Polo Cafe

6th St. Kitchen Unveils New Fall Menu

6th Street Kitchen (507 East 6th Street between Avenue A & B) has unvieled their fall dinner menu (click picture to enlarge) & it’s looking pretty damn tasty!  I’ve reviewed them berore (here) & have had nothing but good things to say about my dining experience there. 

Also noteworthy is that they will be hosting a 7 course tasting preview of the fall menu tomorrow at 7pm.  Further coverage here.

Arcane Turns 2!

Arcane, the French-Caribbean restaurant (111 Avenue C at 7th Street) is celebrating it’s second birthday today.  I just passed by & it looked pretty packed, with party-goers sharing the sidewalk with people drinking at Zum Schneider next door.  I did review the brunch there back in May (not very favorably), but I have as yet to have dinner.  Anyway; Happy Birthday Arcane!
