Whether it’s a lunch date or a first date, this charmingly indie cafe at Broadway and Bleecker is sure to impress. Their “simple and yummy” organic menu offers elegant tweaks on classic American cuisine to SoHo tourists and residents alike. Lunch at the Corner Shop can be deceptively simple, with dishes like “The Corner Shop Dog” or “Corn on the Cob.” The self-proclaimed Dog is the perfect sweet-salty combo of sweet italian sausage, grilled peppers, and balsamic caramelized onions, and the corn is served Mexican style with creamy cotija cheese & lemon cayenne mayo. The restaurant takes a turn towards the intimate during evening hours, when a generous count of tea candles flickers against the cafe’s exposed brick wall and distinctive wall-mounted mirror. The dinner menu changes frequently, but always features a carefully tailored list of free range and organic veggie goodness. All in all, the fresh ingredients, warm ambiance, and friendly staff make this a top pick for a casual-chic meal with friends.
