Mongers Market + Kitchen

American Cafe, Deli/Sandwich ShopLower East$10-$25

East Coast oysters are plump and mild, and the tuna ceviche is bright from kabosu and ginger. A burrata panzanella is unorthodox but shows range. The Grilled Little Gem deconstructs Caesar salad, but is nowhere near as boring as that implies. Tangy Alabama fried green tomatoes shine in a greaseless crab cake "sammy."

Yellow Jacket Social Club

American CafeLower East$10-$25 First Plates 

The Yellow Jacket Social Club has a comfortable, lived-in feel that aims to attract a neighborhood bar crowd as much as the Urban Outfitted. The furniture is funky and comfortable, and the interior is quiet enough to allow for conversation. Outdoors, it’s a friendly scene, and friendly, well-behaved dogs are welcome.
