Spawned by a West Village updated diner the size of a postage stamp, the East Village counterpart is larger and more comfortable, but retains a similarly quirky menu. At its heart are junk-food staples-burgers, hot dogs, BLTs, and fish and chips-elevated a bit in quality, then joined by a healthier farmer's market component. The daily roster of fresh veggies, done in reverent and creative ways, is impressive, and the platter, which allows you to pick any four, is the way to go. On a recent afternoon the selection included cauliflower with mustard sauce, artichoke hearts parmesan, beets with walnuts, and garlic mashed potatoes, enough for two hungry people.
