3 Love It
Save it
Crowds from the nearby Village East Cinemas have decamped to Pangea for post-movie bites since the ’80s, but the restaurant’s age is finally starting to show. Try to sit near the windows or outside—it’s noisy inside thanks to low ceilings. The menu, which touches on Middle Eastern, Italian and Asian cuisine, is wildly inconsistent. Tuscan shrimp rolled in fresh herbs over white beans are refreshing and hearty, but the Moroccan chicken with preserved lemon is cloyingly sweet. Hedge your bets with never-fail options like fried calamari or burgers to best enjoy this little standby.
