Best oxtail dishes in Manhattan?

My husband is a huge oxtail fan, and I'd like to take him someplace for oxtail on his birthday this week. We used to go to Momofuku Noodle Bar for the oxtail stew, and he loved it.

Any new favorite oxtail dishes? Would like mid-range pricing...$15-$30 per entree. But am also happy with a cheap Asian oxtail dish, as long as the atmosphere is still pretty cool.

    1. Any Jamaican/Caribbean joint should have Oxtail on the menu...I've never had a bad oxtail at these places.

      1. What Chuonfood said - the Marrow & Oxtail at Blue Ribbon is a classic at this point.

        Snail & Oxtail Ravioli at Public
        Oxtail Stuffed Peppers at Casa Mono
        Oxtail & Root Vegetables, Oxtail with Poached Eggs & Pimento Polenta on French Toast, Jerk Oxtail French Toast, Jerk Oxtail Soup, and probably twelve other things at Shopsin's General Store
        Oxtail Risotto Balls at Terroir Tribeca

        ...that should be enough to get you started. And that's not even including Chinatown. Lots of oxtail soups and oxtail over noodles to be found... Good Taste, Chanoodle, Ah Ping Snack Bar, Hua Du just to name a few...

        1. On more of an up restaurant note, Babbo-Gnocchi with Braised Oxtail.
          The dish might also be at Lupa.

          1. For a very good low-end oxtail dish, the stewed oxtail at Xian Famous Foods is excellent, but there's no atmosphere there.
