The East Village - Manhattan's former punk and beatnik mecca - has become something of a Little Tokyo in recent years. Get authentic ramen and sushi here, as well as the izakaya (Japanese gastropub) experience. Kenka-ya is the original East Village izakaya, but now there are others. Arrive early to put your name in for a table, or get stuck waiting for hours.The East Village is still a haven for artists, and some of its old bohemian-era mainstays can still be found: KGB, Cafe Simone, Yaffa's, Veselka, and Cafe Magador.
