Dinner around Union Square

Looking for a good dinner recommendation for tonight around Union Square (or within ten blocks or so). My roommate's mother, who has published a cookbook, is in town and we're looking for something interesting and creative but still hearty (ie, not to science-y). Ethnic restaurants are more than welcome. Union Square Cafe, etc isn't in the running, as we're looking for something new (to us).

Thanks so much!

  1. There are a lot of good restaurants around there. If you are looking for ethnic, you might like Salam on 13th and 6th. It is Moroccan.

    1. Salam is great if you want mezze. If you're look for something more substantial, check out Lucy Latin Kitchen which is only a block away from the park. While it's warm out, upscale Latin and delicious drinks a cut above Rosa's is ideal.

        Isn't mezze middle eastern appetizers? Salam has fantastic entrees, as well. The coriander dishes are outstanding.
