1.60 Restaurants - New York

339 Greenwich St.
New York, NY, 10013

It's a health supermarket (fruits, nuts, etc) but also a good place for custom salads, hot sandwiches and so on.

Can eat-in or take-out if you want.

Looking for a great Jewish Deli in Midtown go to Ben's on 38th between 7th and 8th. Typical atmosphere (noisy and hurried) but great portions and not priced too badly either.

Calle Ocho
446 Columbus Ave. (Upper West Side)
at 81st St.

Latin American

I took my girlfriend to this place for her birthday. I was a little skeptical because she was the one to suggest it but from the time of arrival I was extremely pleased with the restaurant. The decor is inviting, food was delicious and the service was excellent. Great place for couples or groups. Lots of singles in the lounge area. I had the cuban steak w/ yucca fries, and it was perfect. I will go back to this place again and again.

Corner Bistro

331 W. 4th St. (West Village)
at Jane St.

The burgers are amazing, and they serve beer in 8oz mugs for like $2 or something close - its a fun place, usually very crowded.

646 W 131st St.
New York, NY 10027


This is a great BBQ place. The beef brisket and pulled pork are exceptional. The prices are reasonable for the portions - I have been here with groups and it has averaged $25 - 28 per person. It has a great atmosphere. Minor issue - place is dark, sometimes it is hard to read menu. Restaurant is packed, especially between 6pm - 8:30pm. They do take reservations. and they have takeout. There is Fairway across street where you can chill while you wait. Street parking and parking under the elevated train is easy to find before 8pm within a 2 block radius. Note, some spots have no parking 7a - 7p. Dinosaur is at corner of Riverside Dr and 131st.

32 Avenue A (2nd and 3rd streets)
New York, NY

This is my very favorite sushi in NYC. I've been eating there (as often as possible) for the past 20 years, and I've never, even once, been disappointed. The service is excellent, the atmosphere is pleasant, there's an early bird special, but the best part is that the fish is so, so, very, fresh. The flavor is intensely wonderful. Not a huge selection of fancy rolls for people who are into that, but if you want very good traditional sushi and sashimi, this is the place.

Frankie & Johnnie's Steakhouse
269 W 45th St
New York, NY 10036
(212) 997-9494
Cross Street: Between Broadway and Eighth Avenue

Steak was "ok", but I was expecting better. Service was great, you could tell they were pros. Was a little pricey as to be expected. If you're in the mood for a great steak, this is the not the place to go. Seems to attract a much older crowd.

Grey Dog's
33 Carmine St. Between Bedford & Bleecker St
New York, NY 10014

Homey coffeehouse in Greenwich Village. I haven't tried their breakfast options but have heard its the absolute rave. What I have tried though were there jumbo sandwiches and soups.

You can order combo cold cuts with fresh homemade bread like 9-grain, rosemary-garlic, whole wheat, et cetera. You can also try their Cobb Salads (for the veggie lovers). Combine that with a cup of java and a cookie the size of of your briefcase (okay exaggerating just a tad but nevertheless, fairly big) and you're good to go.

Eat-in or Take-out. Word of warning though, the place can become packed fast.

Il Laboratorio del Gelato
95 Orchard St. between Broome & Delancey
New York 10002

I would say this place rivals Ciao Bella for the best tasting gelato in town. However, like Ciao Bella, you don't know if they're going to have any "cool" and exotic flavours that day or not.

218 8th Ave between W 21st St. & W 22nd St.
New York 10011

Probably one of the best burrito shops in the city. Also one of the few places to grab California-style burritos. Be prepared to spend though as they charge close to $7 per burrito. However, they are filling since they overstuff. They also sell condiments, drinks native from Mexico.

Take-out only.

261 Water St
MANHATTAN, NY 10038-1714

This is the best steakhouse in NYC, end of discussion. It was started by the head guy from that "other" steakhouse accross the river (Peter Luger). They have literally the exact same menu items at almost the same prices. YES, they have those milky 5 ounce slices of bacon. YES, they have that world famous "Luger Style" steak sauce. NO, you dont need to go to Brooklyn for diner! I have been to both restaurants a number of times and I can honestly say that if the food was laid out side by side NOBODY could tell the difference. MarkJoseph's gets the same priority choice at the meat market that Luger's does, so you know how good it will be. If you happen to live in Manhattan, or if Manhattan is closer to you than Brooklyn, then go to MarkJoseph's instead. I can say with conviction that they serve the best bloody slab of cow that you can sink your incisors into. Get carnivorous and eat here tonight!

Cucina Italiana
55 Greenwich Ave (at Perry)
New York, NY 10014
Phone: 212-229-0551

This is a great inexpensive italian resturant. The food is fresh. From inexpensive pastas to moderately priced meat and seafood items. Lunch is a rare treat: pasta dish, soup or salad and soda or coffee for $6.95. The place is small but with the warm weather comes outdoor seating.

Steve's Pizza
110 Trinity Pl. near Cedar St.
New York, NY 10006

In my opinion, tastier than Lombardi's and Grimaldi's. It's located near WTC, and one of the favorite spots for good pizza. It's also a small establishment so you may consider just ordering take-out.

152 West 34th Street, Manhattan, NY (Across from Herald Square Macy's)

Click for full size

Awesome two-floor restaurant to kick back and relax after a day of shopping perhaps, or the movies. Interested in steak, baked potato, shrimp; your favorite selection of beer, and lastly - the deserts!

This location allows you to watch the chefs cook your food on the grills as you wait online.
Definitely worth the wait, and prices are great.

A friendly reminder: the place is always packed, but 'moving'. :-)
