Suggestions near Mt. Sinai Hospital

tanno Jan 25, 2012 09:31 AM

My wife is in a very slow labor at Mt. Sinai Hospital, and I can't keep eating all my meals at the East Harlem location of Moustache.

If you have a good CH suggestion in the area of Madison and 100, please let me know. I'm sure there are some treasures nearby.

    Can't agree on San Matteo -- my one recent experience was not a good one, undercooked, underdressed pizza and meatballs that were cold in the middle. For real Italian pizza plus a few specialties, a few tables but mostly takeout, I love Little Luzzo's on 96th between Lexington and Park.

    Little Luzzo's
    119 E 96th St, New York, NY 10029

    San Matteo
    1739 2nd Ave, New York, NY 10128

      Tre Otto at Madison and 97, for pasta but not pizza (I think their pizza bites..)

            Also, Lexington Social - Lex and 103. Wine bar with tapas. Easy atmosphere.
            Is ABV opened - when i walked by on Sunday it still had brown paper on the windows?

              Brown paper has come down and they were doing business apace last night.

              The folks behind Earl's Beer and Cheese just opened a wine bar called ABV on Lexington and 97th that I will probably check out tomorrow, but in the meantime I recommend Earl's as a solid place for a sandwich and a beer. Right by Moustache, there is good Senegalese at La Galette, Thai at Gong and Mexican at Jalapeño Deli. Maharaja Palace is the local Indian joint and not half bad. Little Luzzo is the place to hit up for pizza. If you order delivery, check out Cafe Ollin and Milk Burger.

                Earl's Beer & Cheese is nearby. It can get quite crowded but they often do have a few good beers on tap and the food is pretty good (I love the grilled cheese sandwich that has the pickles on an english muffin).

                  I just had that sandwich last night. This place is great, and the same owners now have a bigger place, ABV, around the corner (which I haven't tried).

                  If you like good Mexican, try E Paso Taqueria on 97th between Madison & Park. Also good for takeout, including excellent desserts is Champignon on Madison between 96th & 97th. Best of luck!

                      Yes and it's way more than tortillas -- terrific, authentic Mexican entrees.
