rice and beans in midtown east?

I'm having a craving but can't think of anywhere to get them around here. I'd go west to Hell's kitchen if I have to. I'm thinking more cuban than Mexican but I'm open.

  1. Caridad Restaurant, 18 E 33rd St, btwn 5th Ave & Madison Ave. Latin/Carib cuisine. Good pernil and other meats, but I usually just order the very flavorful and satisfying yellow rice and red beans. Service in the restaurant is so so. Best for takeout. Ask for hot sauce if you like it spicy.
