My favorite casual go-to restaurant, O.G. on 6th st between A and B, is closing in August (http://eater.com/archives/2008/07/the...). One of the waiters also let me know when I was there last week.
I love O.G. because the food is consistently good, the prices are reasonable, and the staff is always extremely friendly. I must go at least twice a month.
Any recommendations on new places I can explore to fill the void this will leave? I'm looking for something with the same qualities--consistently good food, reasonable prices, and a friendly staff. It's got to be casual enough to just pop in on a Saturday night, and to feel free to get to know and chat with the waitstaff. East Village around that same area would be perfect. I want a place I can frequent.
Thanks in advance,
