    There are so many great ethnic restaurants - Vietnam Cafe, Abyssinia, Dahlak and Nan.

      BYOB, Thai and Laotian, but please confirm they are open on Sundays as I've only gone on Fridays and Saturdays

        I was there on Tuesday with a vegetarian friend. We went to New Delhi, a nice little Indian restaurant with both menu offerings and a nice buffet in the evenings. Nothing mind-blowing, but solid enjoyable Indian with pleasant service. Buffet is 11.95 a head.

          Recently I've been liking the Indian buffet at Sitar India on 38th Street better than the others in the Penn area. I see more and more native Indians eating there now which is always a good sign.

          They sell beer and soft drinks. I don't know if you can bring wine.
