Sonnyboy is an Australian cafe on the Lower East Side from the people behind another attractive place to drink spritzes and oat milk, Banter. This place is open all day, and we like it for brunch and Happy Hour a bit more than for a full sit-down dinner. Food-wise, you can get everything from gluten-free pancakes to a breakfast sandwich with a thick sausage patty, melted cheddar, and chili jam, and if you come at Happy Hour (4-7pm every day), you can get a burger and fries for $10 and a cocktail for $9.

Mr. Purple is the restaurant/bar on top of Hotel Indigo on the Lower East Side. It’s a good place to grab a drink with a group, but it does get busy.
Klein’s is the restaurant at the bottom of The Hoxton, a hotel in North Williamsburg. The food is American, and it’s good (but a little boring).
Suggested by our writers
A fun Lower East Side spot with good Mexican food. This is where you should have your next birthday.
Speedy Romeo LES
A smaller, very casual Lower East Side outpost of Brooklyn’s Speedy Romeo. They may be known for pizza, but that’s not the best thing here.
Dudley's is more about the hang than it is a memorable meal. Go in with the right expectations and you’ll be glad it’s there.
