It seems like every street in the East Village could benefit from the kind of look that the Post's Tom Sykes gives 6th Street between Avenue A and Avenue C. Here's a building by building analysis of where to eat, drink, and even work out:

94 [Avenue A]: Sidewalk Cafe
503: Gladiator Gym
505: Wonder Bar – gay, but don't worry straight gals and guys, you won't be laughed out (it's also a Gothamist favorite)
507: Oriental Grill – bargain Asian food
509: Industry (food) – "one of the few true destination restaurants in the East Village"
511: Coz – not so divey, hence not so East Villagey
520: Joe's Bar – divey

Another great part of 6th Street: The 6th Street Garden at Avenue B.
