Rags to Dishes

Once strictly a destination for cut-rate clothing, gritty Orchard Street is following Clinton Street’s lead, becoming a veritable restaurant row.


1. Kitchen and Cocktails
This spinoff of San Francisco’s Luna Park dishes both familiar comfort food (flatiron steak and fries, do-it-yourself s’mores) and not so (Hawaiian tuna poke and a Dr Pepper–based cocktail).
199 Orchard St., nr. E. Houston St.; 212-420-1112

2. Basso Est
Separated from the red-sauce pack by enthusiastic service and toothsome pastas like maccheroni alla chitarra with lamb ragù.
198 Orchard St., nr. E. Houston st.; 212-358-9469

3. Zozo’s Juice and Grille
Terrific Brazilian-style steak and chicken sandwiches, and all manner of shakes and smoothies.
172 Orchard St., at Stanton St.; 212-228-0009

4. Jeeb Thai Tapas
Another stylish Thai restaurant, this one built around the ever-popular small-plates formula.
154 Orchard St. nr. Rivington St.; 212-677-4101
