    I recently had lunch at Chinatown Brasserie on Lafayette Street and really enjoyed it. The room is beautiful and the staff couldn't have been nicer.

      Fusion Asian - Buddakan
      Fusion Japanese - Morimoto (only for the ultimate omakase)
      Quasi-authentic Chinese - Chinatown Brasserie
      Traditional Japanese (sushi and kaiseki) - Masa, Sugiyama, 15 East (well, semi-traditional)
      Indian - Devi (wait till they re-open), Tamarind
      Not sure about Korea.
      Kittchitai is supposed to be fine-dining Thai, but I wasn't impressed with the food.

        I've heard great things about Rosanjin for Japanese. For Chinese, I like Our Place. Mr. K's and Shun Lee have both been disappointments.

          I always enjoy our meals at Chin Chin - Chinese. Great Peking Duck.

            I agree with Chin-Chin. Have the dumpling appetizer, it is delicious and light.
