Cornelia Street Café

Three artists opened the Cornelia Street Café on July 4, 1977, and it is known as much for its performances as is for its food. According to its website, Suzanne Vega got her start here, as did Eve Ensler’s “Vagina Monologues.” Dr. Oliver Sacks was a regular, and it still presents everything from science lectures to free jazz. The events are in an intimate space downstairs, though in the summer and warmer months, the sidewalk tables open onto a stage that’s always changing, the West Village itself. (29 Cornelia St. 212-989-9319.)
