Favorite spots close by?

    Catene's is pretty good. Not great enough to be in the DiFara's or A&H class, but OK. The staff are very friendly, in an old-school NYC Italian sort of way, and the lady who rings everything up, and who barely speaks any English, is a gem. One of the better things they serve, which is trumpeted on the front of the store, is the fried calamari hero.

      Anyone have the 411 on that hero shop near the north west corner? I drove by last Saturday and three people were chowing down on heros right in front of the place. Couldn't tell if they (the heroes)looked good or not.

        Soup and tamales (very informal, mostly to go) at the Flores stand on the west side of 4th Ave at 10/11th St
        total gem, right by the subway
