Shake Shack

Burgers, shakes, sodas and pretty much all the classic fast food staples can be found at this revered burger joint in Madison Square Park. In addition to addictive burgers and shakes, the Shack offers a leafy outdoor setting for its patrons to watch the city go by. The surprise here is that they serve booze with your burger; from beer, to reds and whites available by glass and bottle, grab one and try to find a spot on the grass. What's more, they're dog-friendly and they have a few things on the menu as well for your pooch. During the spring and summer, the line outside can be inexorably long, however there are other locations around Manhattan which are only a cab ride away.

Caffé Vita

This well-known coffeehouse chain from Seattle and the Pacific Northwest has invaded the LES with its much vaunted farm direct and fair trade products. Here you will find a massive range of coffee and espresso, from blends made with Theo chocolate (also from Seattle) to beans straight from farms in Brazil, Africa and other exotic locales such as East Timor. The owners and personnel are also very friendly and knowledgeable, providing tips on simple brewing techniques or giving detailed information on sustainability and fair markets, if you happen to be interested. So sit back, have a cup and find out how far that flavorful bean has traveled.

Mighty Quinn's Barbeque

Garnering stellar accolades since its inception, Mighty Quinn's has quickly become a hotspot for barbeque lovers in the East Village. Texas-born pit master Hugh Magnum is a firm believer of the slow cooking philosophy and wood-smokes the meat to achieve that perfect flavor. Accompanying the meats on the menu is a delightful selection of sides like burnt end baked beans, edamame and sweet pea salad and grilled ratatouille. The drinks menu offers a selection of local beers on tap as well as bottles. The restaurant's eco-conscious philosophy has led them to use reclaimed woods for furniture and decor elements, giving a rustic edge to the space. Contemporary lighting choices, including hanging bare bulbs add a nice touch. Check website for more.

Melt Bakery

Melt is an ice cream shop and bakery that offers its customers rich, creamy ice cream sandwiched between fresh, crunchy cookies. Using only fresh, seasonal and sustainable local ingredients, these delicious treats are prepared from scratch daily at the ice cream shop itself. Although the selection changes regularly, some delicious regulars include the Morticia with malted chocolate rum ice cream and chocolate cookies, the Lovelet with cream cheese ice cream and red velvet Meltcakes, and the Cinnamax with cinnamon ice cream and snickerdoodles. Available in regular and mini-sized varieties, Melt ice cream sandwiches are a great choice for an after dinner treat, or to sweeten a party.

French Louie

French Louie offers minimalist interiors where the focus is on the gourmet food and wine. It has an elongated dining room with stark white walls, one of which features wall art depicting conifers. Guests can start their meal with appetizers such as oysters, smoked sardines and lobster cocktail. This is followed by entrees like sugar snap pea salad, a blend of peas, avocados, and basil, and mains such as lamb Navarin with baby turnips. The desserts include lime meringue tart and profiteroles served with pistachio ice cream. In the traditional French style, the meal ends with cheese from regions like Pyrénées and Normandy, accompanied by a selection of cognacs and sherries.

Spot Dessert Bar

Spot Dessert Bar offers popular ice creams and pastries with an Asian twist. With quirky flavors like Green Tea in the Thai Tea Creme Brulee, berries in Yuzu Eskimo and jasmine in the Kabocha Brulee cake, this dessert shop adds a new dimension to the average American dessert. There are pastries and ice creams too and the shop is a colorful mix of sweet treats for the sweet lovers. There is Oreo, tapioca, brownie, raspberry and nata de coco ice cream, among other flavors.
