John's of 12th Street is a reliable old-school Italian joint in the East Village that's been open since 1908. Tucked in old-style town house, John's hearty approach to Italian cooking (lots of cream, olive oil, and red sauce) has largely remained the same since it first opened its doors. While the meatballs may be the restaurant's pièce de résistance, John's is also known for its perhaps incongruous, albeit delicious, vegan menu.
