Beast in P. Heights does half price on their whole bottle list on Tuesdays, and they have a few very good selections.
Eastern Parkway would make a much better Champ-Elysees analogy.
Instead of juicing, I make my own green smoothies every workday.
Couple handfuls of baby spinach, a banana, some frozen berries, and almond milk or water or yogurt or... Or I sub the berries for a spoon of almond butter.
I just put all the stuff in a tub and immersion blend for about a minute. It's easy, cheap, unmessy and I can put it in a jar and take it with me.
campari grapefruit soda
I feel the same way about their Cherry Chip.
Also: there are always a bunch of free outdoor concerts in NYC in the summer. here's a list: http://www.nycgo.com/articles/free-summer-concerts-2012/
Good walks: over the Brooklyn Bridge, and along the High Line on the West side.
Check out the New Museum, their fantastic bookstore, and their cookies (which are supplied by City Bakery--huge chewy amazing), on your way from west to east village, or vice versa: http://www.newmuseum.org/
Go to the Upper West Side and check out the clock for an hour or 20 (it really is immersive and spectacular)http://lincolncenterfestival.org/index.php/2012-the-clock
ok ok maybe salted caramel is in every damn dessert in nyc these days, but Steve's Salty Caramel is really a revelation.
I'm sorry this isn't as helpful as it could be, since the place is closed on Mondays, but do try Enoteca Maria if you happen to go there Wed-Sun. Wonderful seasonal regional food, and tons of it. And they're such nice people. It's a five minute walk off the Ferry: http://www.enotecamaria.com/wp/
Will check out Canialle though, thanks! One of those places I always pass but don't register.
Whelp. We went to Babbo instead. No steak, but RABBIT FOUR WAYS. Tiny baby vegetables. Cinzano reduction. With a quartino of Paolo Bea Sagrantino for the mf win.
Or maybe we'll just go to Minetta Tavern--late. Any suggestions better than Minetta?
Bar Toto on 6th has a happy hour and good paninis, and it's a very nice space.
