I love eating in New York. Always looking for cool different restaurants serving great ethnic foods or great new York specialties. Any recs near Penn station would be great! Nothing fancy, hole in the walls are great. Price doesn't matter. Thanks

  1. Penn is probably the crappiest dining area of the city.

    That said, nearby:
    To the West
    Grand Sichuan

    To the East
    John Dory

      Isn't Koreatown within walking distance of Penn Station?

        How could i forget? Sure is!

        Not my expertise. Lots of threads on this board will help you; do a search.

        1. re: Philly Ray

          Yes! I like Madangsui for Korean BBQ.

          The new Gaonnuri for the view, maybe? Do a search on here for reviews.

          Near Maysville is the new Korean place by the chef at Danji. it is called Hanjan. On the same block is also Hill Country, IIRC.

          Near the Breslin also is The NoMad.

            The new Num Pang is around the block too,

            Num Pang Nomad. 1129 Broadway (Btw. 25th & 26th St)

              Num Pang Nomad, what a tongue twister! Say that 3 times fast...

              1. re: kathryn

                Mmmm, Num Pang: BBQ brisket and blood orange lemonade, please!

          2. re: thegforceny

            Yes, in general you will need to walk either to 6th or 9th Avenue, and down to the 20s.

          3. Adding to the chorus for Hanjan and Num Pang. Have heard good things about Don's Bogam, and for something a little different, would suggest Pars (Persian food), which I believe is on 26th St.
