dinner for 2 near the angelika?

any recs for the retail-heavy, restaurant-light area around the intersection of broadway and houston? we've tired ourselves out on Noho Star and Lure Fishbar - looking for something new!

  1. Have you been to Jean-Claude, 137 Sullivan just south of Houston? Great little french place -- v authentic. Cash only.

    1. Centovini - diagonally across the street on Houston. good Italian, fairly new

      1. When to Dos Caminos SoHo recently. The food's good - the service was great. Seriously. Not just courteous and polite, but friendly in a sincere-sounding way.

        1. How about a burger at Fanelli's on Prince and Mercer? I also like Jerry's and Kelley and Ping.

            Agree with Katherine's picks for casual dining in that area. I'd also throw in Zoe on prince -- have only gone there for lunch but for new american (which may not be considered exciting or trendy cuisine), I suspect it gets overlooked and it's actually pretty good. Otherwise Lupa is always good, though just slightly further west.

              I never did try Kelley and Ping.

            2. Lupa. Arturo's. Jane. All on or near Houston.
              Otherwise, it's about to get nice out - so how about an exploratory walk? Over to Layfayette and down to Spring for a whole mess of restaurants down there. There are also some great ones if you walk over to Thompson/Sullivan and then south.

                second Jane, plus it's pretty big so there shouldn't be a wait for a table
