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

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

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

            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).
