The BEST of Bleeker Street Part 2: Food & Drink

Daniela told you about all the good places to shop last week on Bleeker Street in NYC. She's back giving you a whole list of places to Google for stellar food & drink in the big apple.
Between Carmine Street and Seventh Avenue, foodies will delight in the array of boutique food shops to satisfy every craving and curiosity.
All the retail action will surely leave you hungry so spend some time indulging in fresh treats. Amy’s Bread, Murray’s Cheese, Rocco’s Pastry Shop (below), Grom Gelato and of course Magnolia Bakery will get your energy levels back up before you conquer the rest of the block. 
After a quick stop at the hotel to drop off the shopping bags and freshen up, make your way back for dinner at one of the many charismatic neighbourhood restaurants; Keste Pizza, Sushi Samba, Trattoria Pesce Pasta, EightyFour on Seventh, Hummus Place or Mermaid Oyster Bar. Bid your tour farewell with a toast at one of Bleecker’s local watering holes like (Le) Poisson Rouge (top photo), Art Bar, or Fat Cat, and start planning your return.
