Dinner near Angelika theater?
I am meeting my sister for dinner before a movie and am looking for a good, casual dinner recommendation. Is there still a Vietnamese place called Mekong or something nearby? Also if anyone has thoughts on L'Orange Bleue I would be interested to hear.
mekong in soho is closed.
here are a few options:
great jones cafe
54 great jones st btwn lafayette and bowery
232 elizabeth st btwn houston and prince
kelley and ping
127 greene btwn prince and houston
20 spring btwn elizabeth and mott
20 prince btwn elizabeth and mott
5 bleecker at bowery
Noho Star is casual, with consistently good prices and good food (not awe-inspired, but generally quite tasty). A few blocks west (on thompson): arturo's, lupa, tomoe sushi -- all really good.
I'm not a huge fan of Noho Star and I would avoid Kelly & Ping if at all possible.
I like Lombardi's (on Spring and Mott) for pizza, although Arturro's is good, too
I'll second Bianca (on Bleecker btwn Bowery & Elizabeth) for Italian
Cafe El Portal (on Elizabeth btwn Spring & Kenmare) is good Mexican (but the margaritas are pretty bad)
Ushi Wakamura on Houston is fabulous Sushi, too - superior to Tomoe in my opinion
Great Jones cafe is real fun, too.
