The superb American eatery in the West Village has spawned a crosstown sibling in the East Village. The spot boasts more room—a small bar and a few more tables, plus some banquettes—but the important things haven’t changed. A chalkboard menu still advertises market sides—vegetable dishes, like luscious beets with toasted walnuts—which have acquired a cult following. The turkey burger on a toasted bun is still juicy and garlicky; and desserts—like moist carrot layer cake—are as satisfying as ever. The only bummer is the wait, though it’s worth it.
