Vynl on Columbus
I like the one in Hell's Kitchen, too, though haven't been to the new one in my nabe, yet. I think someone gave a brief review of it recently if you want to try a search.
I like Hampton Chutney Co. and Le Pain Quotidien for a casual lunch. If you don't expect authentic Indian, Hampton is pretty good IMO.
I personally do not much like French Roast. It's not very interesting food and is overpriced for what you're getting.
