Unique/Different Eating Experience in Hell's Kitchen
I am looking for an atypical eating experience in hell's kitchen for a late night dinner.
What I like:
Ethnic, different, low key (hole in the wall), authentic, not overly cool
What I do not like:
Productions, average, run of the mill
You know how there are places that try to be different (the nyc speakeasy scene can be like that at times - but can be cool too)? I am looking for a place that is different without trying to be that way. Whether it is an authentic ethnic dive, or just a good place doing it's thing.
Open to ideas... only thing I do not want is average.
Ahh... also - walking distance from mid town a bonus, and open late (til 11/12) a must too.
Kyotofu: japanese food centered around tofu (I swear,it's good! And I'm not a veggie) I know it's open late.
Gazala Place: Israeli food-I found it interesting ethnically but would say the food was only "good" not great
Other places generally well-liked though I haven't had a chance to try:
Ariana Afghan House
Multiple Ethiopian spots: Queen of Sheba, Meskerem
Pam Real Thai
Enjoy! Hells Kitchen is the perfect nabe to explore these types of spots.
