Haewondoo – highly regarded Korean bbq – approx $30pp
Bhim Cafe – new himalayan joint. on 37th rd. there are 2 floors, if you are worried that it looks small. This was the location of himalayan fast food. this seems like the most adventurous of the group. would be interesting at like 4pm.
Anzuelo Fino – Peruvian on Northern/86th http://www.eatingintranslation.com/2009/01/el-anzuelo-fino.html
Terazza Number 7 train bar/cafe – although they serve no food… could be a cool place to hang out and meet people.
eh, lets throw a monkey wrench in the system and add la portena to the list too.
