I went here on a whim with my friend while I was at a medical conference in the city. I have to say, that this place a loads of fun, even if we only stayed for 30 minutes. The cozy antique look of the place was what attracted us, and the menu got us to stay. The middle eastern theme was interesting and the prices were very good. I ordered a chocolate egg cream which was delicious. Also, they tables have chalkboard paint on them which makes eating a lot of fun.
I've visited twice as the first time the meal seemed pretty decent and the service was alright. The second time however, the shrimp in my shrimp and garlic sauce seemed tough, almost frozen. And the mussels that the my friend ordered had sand and mud all over. Perhaps they just tripped up that night, but that was definitely my last visit ever.
This is and NYU favorite. They deliver until 3 AM between 14th and Houston.
The cookies are pretty good and always hot, the chocolate chips are super-gooey.
It's cheap too, something like a dollar a cookie to deliver.
This is a typical small bakery but it's open pretty late and they have a nice selection of desserts.
The flour-less chocolate cake is decadent and very tasty.
It is not expensive, but there are not that many places to sit.
It has a relatively nice interior and the location is great, right on top of Union Square park.
This is one of the many thai restaurants on 9th Ave between 45th and 55th streets.
It it purportedly thai-french fusion.
It was definitely cheap, between 7-11 dollars for an entree.
The interior is of the typical bright orange plasticy variety. The cups and flatwear are from ikea and say so on the bottoms. Quirky that they didn't go to a restaurant supply store.
My friend ordered the fake duck and she loved it. Two weeks later she said it was the best duck she ever had. I told her it was tofu.
The menu and check were music-themed, which I didn't understand. The menu was on a vinyl record and I can't remember how the check came.
I think we were a little ignored at lunch; we were the only ones in there. But it was hot that day and they had good air-conditioning so all was fine.
This restaurant is a little confusing because it extends over into another storefront but it's worth the confusion, I'd say.
The interior is a little small, but the waitresses are very nice and helpful.
The bathroom was not so nice. It was tiny and just not the best.
The food was as good as any other thai-fusiony-style food I've ever had. I got some kind of fake duck and it was good, my friend got a soup that was crazy-spicy. Not for people, pregnant, nursing, or prone to heart attacks.
It was pretty cheap too, I want to say between 7 and 14 dollars for a main course. We got dessert and it was good but not that great, however it was part of a three-course dinner special for something cheap like 12 dollars. Well worth it.
We went to brunch here and it was very fun. The neighborhood isn't the prettiest, but the exterior and interior of Eatery were very respectable.
The prices were very reasonable, I believe ranging from 8 to 12 dollars.
The best part of the meal was the bread at the beginning. It was decidedly not your standard dinner roll. Apparently every day they bake a different "bread" to serve while you order. Ours was some kind of a banana bread with chocolate chips, it was delicious.
I ate at Dos Caminos with friends of the family and a couple of them did not know what they were in for. This is not a restaurant for people who've never heard of a mole sauce.
The prices were a little high, but the atmosphere is very cool. Hammered copper walls and glass and candles: pretty romantic stuff.
I thought the food was very good, and it wasn't maybe on the smaller side as far as today's portions go.
The fun part was getting the guacamole made at your table, at least if you don't already know how to make guacamole. They have varying degrees of spiciness and the cilantro is optional. They make it in a stone pig right at your table and it is served with fresh, if not greasy, tortilla chips.
It is a pretty bumping place, you're probably not going to be eating there alone (or able to get a table) after 8 or so.
I had fun, and the wait-staff is very accomodating (took back an order of lobster something-or-other for extreme saltiness) and knowledgeable. We actually saw a group of the hot, young, new servers doing a tasting of all the items on the menu.
Moghul Express is a little take-out place approximately 1 mile away from its sister restaurant Moghul. While, Moghul the restaurant is a beautiful fine cuisine experience, Moghul Express is quite the opposite. The food is fair for a takeout restaurant, but most would expect more from something affiliated with Moghul. The menu offers Chinese and Indian cuisine and many many sweets, however the sweets are ordinary as far as takeout goes. There are a couple tables for dine-in customers, but if you want to eat in I'd suggest some place else.
This is probably one of the best Indian dance academies you'll find in the tri-state area. The main instructor, former Indian queen of dance Padma Khanna, teaches bollywood and kathak. Her choreography is always engaging and the shows that Indianica put on are beautiful. Also, this is a great community for young children to enter. The instructors are friendly and the people are amazing.
