✓ My favorite food is Japanese (apart from Nepali) and I love Soba Koh for the soba, 15 East and Casa Mono for sushi, and Kambi for Ramen. There's also a really good Sri Lankan restaurant called Sigiri in the east village. Be careful with the spice level because when Sri Lankans mean spicy, it's like whole other level, even for someone with a Nepali upbringing and a strong stomach, like me. They have a really nice mezcal bar that I like as well.
✓ Coppelia's is a cuban diner and is open 24 hours and it's so good for being a 24 hour diner!
✓ There's this really incredible speak easy on 17th between 5th and 6th that I love. The cocktails are really good. It's called, The Raines Law Room. I go up to Lexington and 28th street for the best indian food in NYC at Haandi, and there are tons of indian food options there.
✓ My favorite neighborhood is the East Village. I like the stores Trash & Vaudville and Search and Destroy. I have bought countless hats and sunglasses off the stores on St Marks. There are some nice record shops, vintage stores.
