Suggestions near Mt. Sinai Hospital

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.

  1. 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!

    64 E 97th St, New York, NY 10029

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

    1. 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).

      2. 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 JalapeƱo 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.

        1. 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?
