Grubby: Tuck Shop
Awkwardly billed "The Great Aussie Bite", Tuck Shop was introduced to me by Stephen. This here is drinkin' food - meat, some (not too much) grease, and good gravy (its just Brown and Water).
Open til 4am or so, it will be there for you when the booze isn't.
Steve and I both sat down to our own Guinness Steak and Mushroom pies (with green peppercorn and horseradish gravy). Satisfying. It's got bust-yer-nut umami. For those of you are unfamiliar with the concept of umami, learn it and love it - I will use it often.
We also split a nice pork and sage roll. Greasy, but good.
Super easy location - 1st and 1st, right by 2nd ave F stop. If you are there on a Thursday, between 10-12, duck around the corner to East Village Radio and give a "what's up" to Still Life spinning the stanky shit.
