This has got to be the most comprehensive, ridiculously awesome thing I've seen all month (Well, except for Puppetry of the Penis.)

Wined and Dined, one of the best food blogs ever to hit NYC, has compiled the list to end all lists of free food in Manhattan. Brooklynites, be ready - the Brooklyn list hits soon!

Some I'm dying to try:

Cucuina di Pesce (East Village): What’s better than free mussels w/ marinara at the bar with purchase of a $6 beer or glass of vino. 87 E. 4th St at 2nd Ave.

The Thirsty Scholar (East Village): A free buffet opens at 5 pm on weekdays with food ranging from french fries and buffalo wings to shepherd’s pie and garlic bread. 155 Second Ave., between 9th and 10th Sts.

Il Mulino (Greenwich Village): The onslaught begins here with the Antipasti, as free heapings are circulated through the restaurant and bar areas. 86 W. 3rd St.

Vero Midtown (Midtown East): Get a free pressed panini on Monday nights with the purchase of a specialty cocktail ($9-$12), glass of wine (averaging $10) or martini ($11). 1004 Second Ave at 53rd St (212-935-3530)

Ones I've tried or can vouche for:

Crocodile Lounge (East Village): Offers a free personal pizza with every drink. 325 E. 14th St.

Vintage Irving (Gramercy/Irving Place): They’re giving complimentary sangria and hors d’eouvres between 5pm-6pm Monday through Wednesday. Just RSVP at vintageRSVP@yourpartyplanning.com. 120 E. 15th St.

Rudy’s (Hell’s Kitchen): Free hot dogs all the time at this Hell’s Kitchen dive bar. 627 9th Ave at 44th St.

Sora Lella (West Soho): A the daily happy hour, 5- 7:30pm, Sora Lella serves up a selection of complimentary snacks (zucchini fries and bruschetta) at the bar to accompany cocktails ($10 each, regularly $13-14), select wines by the glass $8 and Peroni beer $5. 300 Spring b/t Greenwich & Hudson
