The Daily Shortlist January 22
Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night is brought back to the stage telling the story of a shipwreck separating twins. But where there’s tragedy there’s also comedy as they wash up on the shore of a land filled with a cast of joyful and melancholic characters. If you’ve never been to Minca for dinner, go right now! This small noodle bar makes some amazing ramen noodles from scratch. Try the Minca Ramen, a mild broth with pork, chicken & dried seafood ($8.50). One of the newer bars in the East Village, Common Ground has a dark wood interior, a relaxed atmosphere, and excellent cocktails like the Blueberry Pie. If you like pastries filled with cream, check out Beard Papa Sweets Café. They offer cream fillings like earl grey, green tea, coffee, and the standard vanilla, chocolate, strawberry among others.
