1. Cafe Sage, one of the only Thai restaurants down here, will be reopening in two weeks on John Street (it's at Front Street right now). They have a decent shrimp pad thai and will be expanding with an extensive new menu.
2. Orange Peel, which used to be another Japanese restaurant, is a full bar and sake bar with interesting appetizers and maki. It is on Beekman Street and serves grilled eel over seasoned rice, a tuna tartar and yellowtail tartar scallion roll, and a 14-piece sashimi lunch.
