Where to try tongue?

I have never had tongue before, and want to try it on my next trip to NYC. I know of (and been to) Katz's Deli, and been reading that they are good for this. Any other (better?) suggestions?

        1. Txikito has a fried tongue dish that might be a good intro. It's wonderful. I also second he Babbo rec.

            Have tried them at Txikito. Pretty good.

            Also, another Spanish-version, i had a very good lengua at Casa Mono, but I don't think that it is offered all-year round.

          2. Some Sichuan restaurants in Manhattan have Ox Tongue and Tripe as appetizer... but they are very spicy and might be too much for you in one single dining experience..... If you are still interested, you can try to find them at Szechuan Gourmet or Wu Liang Ye.
