Honeybrains’ sibling founders believe that eating a combination of veggies, fruits, legumes, whole grains, and omega-3s is the best fuel for optimum brain wellness.
The Smile (Closed)
26 Bond St., Noho
Hip, but not overrated or overrun, this all-day cafe from the guys behind The Jane Hotel is a great place to meet up for a coffee or casual lunch/dinner. They sell artisan goods up front.
Mile End Deli (Closed)
53 Bond St., Noho
Hearty, meaty sandwiches and Montreal-style deli food (house-smoked meats, poutine, brisket, and more) are served here, deluxe. Make sure to get a pickle on the side and wash it all down with a good glass of wine. There's also a location in Brooklyn.
Il Buco Alimentari e Vineria
53 Great Jones St., Noho
We like to stop by this homey café and wine bar for the occasional snack—a house-cured plate of salumi and a glass of wine—just as much as for a full, rustic meal. With gallerist David Zwirner as one of its backers, it’s no surprise this artfully restored ex-lumber supply space fills up with the art crowd on a regular basis. It's ideal for an event, too—their skilled planners will design a beautifully rustic event at long tables in the back rooms.
