Right across the street is Malecon which has great Dominican food. There is also Aqua marina at Broadway and 171 whihc has pretty good italian. If you have time to go a little father one of the best places in the are (in my humble opinion) is Mamajuana cafe which is about two blocks form the Dyckman st A train stop. It is a few stops north of the United but well worth it if you can get the time. Take the A to Dyckman, exit the stairs to the lft and cross broadway. It is one blcol down on the corner of Dyckman and Seaman Ave (Across from the gas station).
