Help needed with ultra-rare culinary experience in NY

Knowing, that NY is often considered as a Mecca for those in search of thrilling and blissfully palatable experiences, as a visitor what are my chances in finding a truly obscure restaurants in NY? Restaurants that are devoted to less known culinary intricacies of the world without the decor-al hyperbole and celebrity chefs, restaurants that are less eager to be capitalizing on recent trends, Zagat ratings etc. I'm not looking for a the best Kaiseki nor foie-gras or Beluga cavior laden haute cuisine. More likely, I'm looking for a places that are rather mundane but truly authentic to it's regional, traditional origin without to much international cross-fusions and experimental concoctions. Is there a chance of finding a restaurant serving anything less ubiquitously featured on any menu as stuffat tal-fenek doused with finger-licking gbejniet or cod tongues and perhaps ye'assa kitfo for that matter? If you happen to know any of such place, do suggest. Surly enough, I will not miss the Reuben! New York, New York, I'm already excited!
Thank you, Bundi the omnivore.
