Great news! My best friend from college is starting at the NYFA this month and just moved into an apartment in the Village this week (Horatio Street, to be specific), so we're going out to celebrate. Any particularly awesome places I should take him? I'm a little more adventurous than he is, but he's pretty easy-going and will take suggestions. Casual is better, since he's not a fancy dude and I'm just barely employed, hah.
I want to start in his nabe, so West Village suggestions are preferable for now, but he will be my excuse to try every place I want to try in the city, so don't worry about being too geographically restricted. Thanks!
