27 Feb Fat Buddah
If you’re looking for a simple yet happening lounge/restaurant/club environment in the city
then I would suggest Fat Buddha. There are a lot of Asian inspired and Asian fusion establishments
in the city, but Fat Buddha is not pretentious like most of those other locales. In fact, Fat Buddha
has a very welcoming vibe. On a Friday night you can go and enjoy food and drink specials, maybe
even stay for the party. Fat Buddha seems very organic in its approach to dining and entertainment.
Every time I’ve gone I’ve heard anything from Al Green all the way to
Beenie Man and Biggie. But this is not your grandmother’s favorite Asian establishment.
Buddha is definitely for young professionals looking for the electricity of the city with a little bit of the
edge taken off. The Lower East Side is known for its down-to-earth eateries, lounges, and clubs.
In my opinion, Fat Buddha is definitely in the higher percentile of LES establishments.
Everything on the menu is good. As far as drinks, they are also great.
