John's of 12th St.

John's of 12th Street is one of my favorite places. In the East Village since 1908, it's become even more precious today when we are losing all of our authentic red-sauce joints.

Vanessa McDonnell made a documentary about John's, and it is now available for renting and buying online.

Watch the trailer, read Grieve's Q&A with the filmmaker from last year, and go eat at John's. They almost sold the place recently, and you just never know when your last meal will be your last. (Seriously, go soon.)

  2. I really like that trailer.

  3. my #1 place from 2004-2009. when they stopped serving real mashed potatoes i was dissapointed (tube). other than that they were like old friends. best food, landmark as well.

  4. I eat at John's a lot. It'd be sad to see it go, let's hope it doesn't come to that.
