Cornelia St. Cafe

Located at 29 Cornelia Street in the heart of New York's West Village, Cornelia Street Cafe was founded by Robin Hirsch over thirty years ago, and through these three decades has been famous for its first-rate food as well as one of the city's best cultural venues, where they present nightly spoken word shows as well as music throughout the year.

Called a "cultural landmark" by Mayor Edward Koch, Cornelia Street Cafe's website is here.
