That is my hood! I would rank Ssam first you want to also have a nice bottle of wine. The wine list is literally 2-3 three BTG choices but they do allow corkage. Please let me know if you have additional questions.

We went to ATLA a few weeks ago, before seeing a show nearby, and really enjoyed it. Astor Wines is right around the corner, among others.

Wine list is very weak though. Had a few cocktails that were, to me, quite different and fun....Tequila of course.

Astor Wines - biggest selection

Discovery

Convive

I also corrected my post. Ssam has a good wine list. Noodle only has a few BTG options and beer.

Atla is not a bad idea as well I did not think of it because it is neither Asian nor in the East Village but it is very close.

Second those recommendations.

A few more:
Mountain House - real deal Sichuan
Raku - terrific udon and non sushi Japanese
Setsugekka - high quality Japanese Matcha

SSam was really good, honestly the salads were standouts but dang that chicken and curry/chile oil!

Ssam remains one of my most enjoyable meals - sitting at the counter with all those heritage hams to try ... and Milk Bar for desert ... hard to beat.

Thanks for posting this I just checked out the menu and it looks great. The location is one of those spots that has had several restaurants in the past 10 years so I just continually walk right by it however I have noticed recently that it has been full and much more lively.

What do they sell at Brodo?

We've been a few times to both Hearth and Zadies, and walked/ran by many, many times at Brodo but never actually dropped in.

Primarily broths. The Chef created his own broths when he tried to lose some weight and ended up creating a business out of it. I think also have juices.

Broths? Amazed that Brodo's been there 2, maybe 3, years now and looks like broth's helping with revenue for all of the space that they occupy. Oh well, hopefully can try some before the end of winter.
