The Corner Bistro

This place has been going since the earlier part of the century and it hasn’t changed, namely because they got it so right from the very beginning.

    Thanks for the tips. One of my favourite cities. But I feel I should point out (as I’m sure any self-respecting New Yorker might do) that it is spelled ‘borough’, and that there are only five in NYC – Manhattan, Brooklyn, Bronx, Queens and Staten Island. I would say Greenwich Village is a neighbourhood.
