ethnic/quirky, MoMA vicinity
My friend and I are braving the crowds to check out the Tim Burton exhibit at MoMA tomorrow and have instructions to find an interesting/ethnic/quirky spot for dinner afterwards. Doesn't have to be confined to that neighborhood. I love Caracas Arepa Bar, Yakitori Totto, any number of divey banh mi joints, street meat, etc etc...but I would love to try someplace I haven't been yet.
There's a place on 45th, I think, off Fifth, that has great chaat - Don't remember name (starts with an S...) but found it through Voice's Fork in the Road.
There's an Ecuadorian place (Rincon Sabroso?) also in the high 40's - open for lunch, I'm not sure about dinner.
These are my new midtown "cheap and interesting!" places.
