Hi guys,

  1. It would be helpful to know exactly what you are looking for. Cuisine preferences? Casual or fancy? Lunch or dinner? Per person budget for food only (drinks, tax, & tips additional).

    But to get you started...

    'inoteca Gramercy, corner of 3rd & 24th. Photos here:

    Turkish Kitchen, on 3rd, b/t 27th & 28th. Photos here:

    Sarge's Deli, on 3rd, b/t 36th & 37th. Superb pastrami. Photos here:

    1. If you're thinking of a lower price point in the immediate neighborhood, how about Pio Pio (try salchipapas and roasted chicken) or 2nd Avenue Deli?

        I haven't been to that particular branch but I love Pio Pio's chicken in general. Good stuff, especially for that price.

      2. you've got that whole strip on east 34th between 2nd and 3rd, out of which the only one i consistently like is Ali Baba. But it's literally about 8 restaurants right there on the south side and they are all kinda booming, all the time.

        1. 2nd Ave on 33rd (?) between near 2nd ave.

            2nd Av. Deli is on 33rd, but b/t 3rd & Lex. I think Sarge's is superior.

            1. re: RGR

              I agree 100% with RGR! Sarge's has the best pastrami, and is open 24/7.

          2. Another vote for Ali Baba.
