the east village rut.

so i've become spoiled. having lived and dined out almost every night in the east village, i'm beginning to get to the point where, when i'm trying to decide where to go for dinner, i'm at a loss.

i know this is ridiculous because it's the east village, a glut of gustatory options. but the same places are always mentioned on this website, i frequent many of them, and i'm beginning to wonder if i'm missing out on hidden gems.

i'm looking for something new to throw some spice into my routine, something that's downscale enough to have a casual dinner (<$15/entree). i live on 5th and Ave A, but i'm willing to wander to Nolita/LES/union square too. generally i tend toward the healthier and am a pescatarian, though i'm open to anything as long as it has options. I love Italian, Latin, Asian, Middle Eastern, and American Nouveau.

my highly frequented spots:

Caracas Arepa Bar
Awash
Caffe Emilia
Atlas Cafe
Snack Dragon
Max
Le Gamin
Cacio e Vino
Supper
Frank
Le Miu
Asashi
Bagel Zone
Boca Chica
Cafe Mogador
Cafe Orlin
St Alps Tea House
Cha An
Esperanto
Perbacco
Clinton St. Baking Co
Public
Moustache
Tsampa
Veselka
Lil Frankies
Yakitori Taisho
Kenka
Klong

ideas, anyone? some inspiration would be lovely.

thanks chowhounds!
