  1. The Green Kitchen on 77th street is a good diner. Spice on 2nd Avenue (thai) Sabor a Mexico. Great authentic tacos

    1. there's also Hummus Kitchen on 2nd Ave between 83rd & 84th

      1. Spice: 2nd Av & 74th Street. Yes it is a chain, but it's damn good.

        1. How about Cafe Mingala? It's on 2nd Ave, around 73rd St or so.

          1. re: sukekiyo

            Naruto Ramen has a special on Monday nites. It's nice to have a hot bowl of soup on a cold night!!

            Buddha BBQ

            Cascabel Taqueria (Portions kinda small though. 2 tacos were not enough for my DH).

          2. thanks for the suggestions!
