What a lovely week we’ve had! I’m saving up all the outdoor locations, but know that when spring gets here you’re going to have more to choose from than you have days of the weekend.

If you have any great recommendations for me to try, please do send an email to [email protected]

Restaurant of the week

This week is all about convenience, quality, and most importantly: value for money.

San Marzano is a little Italian pasta place in the East Village that is absolutely all of these three things.

It’s a very hectic place, so you’re going to need to expect a wait, but with all the bars in the area you’re not going to have a problem filling the time!

Bar of the week

Moving a little further afield from my normal East Village recommendations is this award winning venue.

Dante is rated as one of the WORLD’S best bars (#16) and very deserving of an America Josh accolade, too.

Fantastic cocktails, incredible service, and Negronis on tap; it’s perfect.
