If you want to go somewhere that really captures the style and energy of downtown, Le Dive is the place. “My favorite places for downtown are The Dive, The Mercer and Ludlow House. For downtown, Fumo Harlem, [and] Upper West Side, The Chicken Inn or Lido,” Charles mentioned. This natural wine bar on Canal Street has quickly become the go-to spot. “The creativity and people watching in LES is always inspiring, and it feels like home, so have dinner at Bongos, wine at Le Dive, cocktails at Nine Orchard and a slice at Scarr’s Pizza,” said Karina Trofimova. Brie Welch also added. “I really love Le Dive and Nine Orchard right now. The Dive is definitely the most scenic stage of the moment. Good for fries, wine and people watching,” she said.
