Rustic Tapas and Meatballs

Picking up where Café Paris left off, the small East Village spot keeps things simple, without keeping the focus on the quality of ingredients and flavors that makes simple work. Nevertheless, it's an affordable and casual spot to handle happy hour and small meaty meals away from heavy crowds around downtown.
