LA hound craves cold sesame noodles

kedar5150 Feb 27, 2009 07:12 AM

Flying in from LA tonight - coming in for a wedding, and this is my only free night - and would love to grab some authentic NYC-style Chinese cold sesame noodles - been making those from a NY Times recipe for years, now want to try to real thing! Will be staying on the Upper West Side (45th and 67th), and should get there by around 10:30pm if the airline gods cooperate. Any suggestions for where I can get these noodles relatively close to the upper west side, or that may deliver late?

    This is prob too far away, but I love the cold sesame noodles at Szechuan Gourmet. 39th btw 5 & 6

      My sentiments exactly. The Upper West Side has been known for its dearth of good Chinese restaurants since some time in the 80s or so.

        45th & 67th isn't a location, and 45th isn't the UWS. i assume you're staying somewhere on West 65th Street?

        Ivy's Cafe (72nd between Amsterdam & Columbus)
        Empire Szechuan Kyoto (Columbus between 68th & 69th)
