The Best Restaurants in New York City's East Village

The first neighborhood restaurant to serve Chinese mixian noodles, that is, long rice noodles, also happens to be one of the best in the East Village. Chef Simone Tong, who worked under WD~50 genius Wylie Dufresne, cooks up agnoloti-style pork wontons that pop in your mouth, a chilled cucumber salad swimming in nutty bang bang sauce and an egg white soup dotted with salmon roe all to warm you up for the main event: Noodles. Served spicy with dan dan pork, swimming in slurpable chicken broth and cold with seafood curry, it’s hard to go wrong with any of Tong’s noodle creations.
