Thelewala is right across the street from Kati Roll, and proving to be stiff competition. But can they live up to the beloved original purveyor of this delectable Indian street food? You be the judge.

They call it matzoh, but it's more like a flatbread sprinkled with salt, pepper and some shaved cheese. A beautiful way to start the day, a lovely snack, or a great base for a spread. $2 per disc. Baked fresh every day.
Lovely West Village cafe Bakehouse is hosting a Halloween party on 10/31! They will award prizes for the top three costumes (and worst three!), and they'll be offering $5 draft beers, ghoulish grub, and $10 specialty cocktails like Witches Brew all night.
We're as depressed as the rest of you that coat-season is here, but nifty fall threads like this leather Pascal Jacket from Rag & Bone have us feeling better already ($795/buy now). We're also crushing on R&B's long multi-colored Cecil Skirt ($595/buy now).

The juice bar at Elm Health serves dairy-based smoothies made with your choice of milk, soy milk, or yogurt along with their fresh-squeezed juices like the delicious and refreshing Clean Sweep made with carrot, grapefruit, lemon, cabbage, celery, parsley, and beet ($5.75 for the small, $7 for the large).
...but a chocolate mustache is always in style.
At Chocolate Bar in the West Village.
Shopping for a baby? These Utility Canvas floor mats ($58) come in baby-friendly colors and stand up to wear & tear by teethers and crawlers.
UrbanSpace in the Meatpacking District is closing ahead of schedule due to lack of sales, accoriding to UrbanSpace director, Eric Pierre. Last day to sample Roberta's blistered crust pizza, Steve Ice Cream or Momfuku Milk Bar treats without hopping on the subway will be Saturday, October 28.
We love the grilled fare at Barrio 47 in the West Village (especially the pizza-like pancetta cocas). You may see us there on Tuesdays this fall for Barrio 47's Farm to Fire menus. Each Tuesday, Barrio 47 cooks a different cut of meat in the restaurant's wood-fired brick oven ($25 per person). Here's what's ahead:

It's slightly off the beaten track, but Bakehouse in the far West Village, creates a pain au chocolat that existed, up until now, only in my dreams. Flaky outside, a beautiful bar of chocolate inside is surrounded by an almond cream that makes the whole thing heavenly. Check outside the 14th Street Apple Store on Fridays for their stand.
We live in a world where even if Cheetos aren’t a part of your daily diet, then diet soda or refined white flour are. It’s hard to escape processed foods, which is why Juice Press advocates a raw-food. To get you started on the right path, they offer a six-juices-a-day cleanse to refresh your system. If you’re not up for the commitment, try one of their 100% organic smoothies—a Pina Colada ($11.89) made with coconut water, pineapple, banana, coconut meat, lemon juice, and raw agave nectar is one of the tastiest ways to stay healthy.
I do not generally associate the wearing of jewelry with any particular emotion other than the occasional anxiety that occurs as I yank a necklace from the jewelry box while running out the door, late for work.
I make an exception, though, for Ten Thousand Things, purveyor of zen jewelry. Take, for example, these 18K gold Paisley Cluster and Stone Drop Earrings: don't they make you feel that you could sail into your company holiday party on a sea of calm?
At this 1940's inspired venue, enjoy a romantic dinner while listening to the live jazz band's soulful renditions of Sinatra, Tina Turner and more. Must-try cocktail: the glamour girl (Grey Goose, mint leaves, and lime over watermelon ice cubes, $16).
Quaint restaurant in the West Village, Malatesta, is one of our all-time favorite Italian spots. The fare is reasonably priced and delicious. Be sure to try the Grilled Calamari atop arugula ($10) and the Cheese Ravioli smothered in creamy pink sauce ($13.50). Cash only. Bellissimo!
We LOVE the selection of artisanal wines at this West Village wine shop. Bonus: they do FREE tastings most Thursday evenings from 6:30-9pm.
