Hi there :

I'm looking for a decent lunch spot in this area.

Any ideas..... done Sirtaj ad-nauseum already.

  1. Why don't you try Le Zie on 7th and 20th. Its a lovely little place with lots of European charm and exellent food. Its only drawback is that they do not take credit cards.

      Le Singe Verte isn't bad either. French place on 18th and 7th. Very standard.

      Also like the Portuguese place (used to be O Padeiro, cannot remember new name) on 19th and 6th.)

      Cafeteria on 17th and 7th is attitude-rich, but efficient at lunch and food is surprisingly reasonable and service efficient (at lunch only, it is not good at dinner). Turkey burger is yummy.

      Hana on 22 and 7 is a straightforward, decent sushi place. I would not recommend Monster Sushi (which is on 23 between 6 and 7).

      Haven't tried Porters, a new steak restaurant that opened up on 22 and 7 (across the street) but it looks good.

      If you are looking for cheaper food, the Portuguese place is reasonable for lunch. Another place I like is Manhattan Heroes on 27 and 7. Great takeout - try the black beans and rice with lovely platanos. Also lots of tables.
