Good, Reasonable Place Near St. Marks...

hungry329 Jul 25, 2007 08:01 PM

Any suggestions for a dinner near St. Marks? Not too expensive, any type of food. Have already tried Holy Basil and of course Mermaid Inn, Hearth, Una Pizza Napoletana, Momofuku, and S'Mac. Any other gems in the area?

    Ramen Setagaya
    Otafuku for my 'pus balls
    Yakitori Taisho (Sorry snobs, but I like everything about this cramped joint)
    Sharaku (not destination. But they have my favorite yellowtail collar)
    Cafe Mogador and Nomad for my Moroccan lamb shank craving.

              Kebab House 1st Avenue. Dumpling Man on St Mark's, Ukrainian Center on 2nd between St Mark's and 9th St, Sea on 2nd Ave-4th St, for a treat walk over to Nikky's Vietnamese on 2nd and A.

              So much value for so little cost.

                I'm kinda wishy-washy on Mogador - great prices, fun atmosphere, the food is...ok.

                I adore Il Bagatto or Frank (ridiculous atmosphere) for Italian and Yakiniku West for awesome Japanese bbq at the table (get the short rib!!)

                  I love Frank, but would sooner go to Li'l Frankie's or Supper, just because they're bigger and have more tables.

                  Curve ball: How about Borobudur? I went there about two years ago and enjoyed it.

                  La Palapa
                  Mancora for yummy Peruvian (amazing tomalies)
