Chek! If you’ve been searching for my Cousin Vinny since 1992, you’ve come to the right place. Italian owner Vinny (seen above) literally invites you into his “home” at 11 B. He greets every guest as if they are family and pretends that he remembers you from your last visit…even if it was a year before. The kitchen serves up hearty, red-sauced Italian plates and everything is pretty good. DO take advantage of the BYOB option. What’s better than a $14 tab per person on a Friday night in Manhattan with a rambunctious group of 9?
