While the front section of Prince St. Café is a laid-back coffee shop with baked goods and free WiFi, venture to the back and you’ll find a proper dining area where guests dig into artfully plated salads, pastas, and sandwiches. Using fresh ingredients, Chef Gary creates gourmet menu items such as duck confit salad, gnocchi with wild mushrooms, and sirloin burgers piled high with premium ingredients. And like a dentist who specializes in vampires, the breakfast menu is available all day and night, and includes items such as frittatas and banana-stuffed french toast.

New York City looked different in 1906. The Empire State Building wouldn't begin construction for more than two decades, horses and buggies roamed the streets, and Central Park was still entirely black and white. But in that year, Marcello Raffetto opened a pasta shop that remains a staple of the Greenwich Village community to this day.
Raffetto's started small. Its pasta makers crafted ravioli and dry egg noodles until 1916, when the purchase of a roller machine and a cutting machine allowed them to create more and more varieties. The two machines continue to operate more than a century later. At the controls, customers find the fourth generation of the Raffetto family running the store. The crew seems to work magic with dough and fillings. They stuff lobster into ravioli made from tomato dough, turn spinach dough into thin linguine, and cut long sheets of lasagna. In total, more than 50 kinds of pasta emerge from the open preparation area, not to mention the family's signature potato gnocchi.
Yet for all of these choices, a trip to Raffetto's isn't overwhelming. The friendly staff happily helps patrons pick out the perfect pasta before recommending one of their 10 homemade suaces. Or maybe they'll suggest no sauce at all, telling customers that some pasta goes best with just a bit of butter.
A full-service home-and-office cleaning company, Majik Cleaning has been scrubbing Manhattanite carpets for two decades. During a carpet cleaning, pile whisperers chase away stains and soil with a hot-water extraction wand and scary Dracula imitations. Then, they'll disinfect and sanitize de-dirted floor wigs, imbuing them with nose-friendly freshness. After carpets dry, your toes can make like a rattlesnake, shedding socks to burrow bare feet deep inside nicely scented home turf.
If you prefer your wine free of long histories, complicated chemistries and up-turned noses, Trader Joe’s happily invites you to browse the aisles of their Wine Shop, conveniently attached to the main Trader Joe’s store in Gramercy Park. You’ll find both new and old world bottles on offer, each conveniently laid out by country and region, and many bottles fall below the $10 price point. That means fuss-free, approachable wines that are perfect for young oenophiles, or for grabbing quickly while doing a bit of shopping next door. Colorful and cartoonish notecards and encouraging signs like “Our Product Rocks!” add a goofy, yet down-to-earth vibe to the store, and the cheerful staff is always willing to point you in the right direction, though their overall wine experience may not match up to the most stringent wine stores in New York City.
