Time Out says
Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.
Nicholas Morgenstern (GG's, the General Greene) serves dishes inspired by the California coast at this Lower East Side eatery, having transformed the former El Rey café-bar into a modern lunch counter. In the 15-seat space—featuring communal tables, globe lambs and a multiwood bar—find Vietnamese iced coffee on tap, pastries like plum-and-ginger Danishes and parsnip-and-cajeta toast for breakfast. Heartier lunch dishes include charred chicken brown rice bowls while the bar also pours draft beers, kombucha, and aguas frescas.
