26th & 8th....Unique Dining Ideas?

Ezel95 Mar 1, 2007 10:03 AM

Four of us will be in the area this sunday for dinner. Looking for a moderately priced, off the beaten path restaurant. There's no limitation to the type of food, so suggest away.

    I'd suggest Home on 8th if you like Chinese. It's not really all that authentic but their vegetarian menu is great and, if you are there for dinner, they have a pretty good selection of Rice Dishes. They also have a great collection of Bruce Lee dolls at the front. Here's the address:

    391 8th Avenue
    New York NY 10001
    (212) 947-1420

      If you're keen on Chinese, I would suggest rather go to Grand Sichuan 229 9th Avenue at 24th.

      Two possibilities though the food would not be classified as "unique":

      Seven is on 7th, b/t 29th & 30th. - http://www.sevenbarandgrill.com

      Le Zie, on 7th, b/t 20th & 21st. - http://www.lezie.com

        Le Zie is great. Definitely unique.

          Ditto Grand Sichuan. We love the braised whole fish with scallions and the sauteed string bean with pork. Also great dumplings and soups -love their hot and sour.
