Need a fun place in the E50's

Other than "fraternity row" on Second Ave. The one place I thought of was Dos Caminos. Any other suggestions?

  1. Yakitori Torys is really fun.. Right by frat boy row but the crowd isnt there.

      I've always liked Divine Bar East on 51st b/w 2nd & 3rd. Bar downstairs, tapas and pretty good wine list upstairs. Go early though - this place can get packed.

        Yes, I'd vote for Yakitori Tory's as well. Looks like they fixed the smoke issue in there too.



      2. if you choose dos caminos it should be approached with the right expectations. not so great food with fun, but predictable vibe....

          yes...dos has good margartias, guac and fish tacos. that's it. everything else on the menu has been pretty bad.

          pj clarkes can be fun.

        2. I'm surprised no one has suggested Rio Grande. The margaritas are great... blood orange.
