I have not been back to NY in 6 years, so I am sure that most of the places that I used to frequent are gone. Some of the places, I simply don't remeber the names. Anyway, I want to hit all the must-haves. Location does not matter as long as it's within 45 min of midtown. Specifically, we are looking for the following:
Casual Indian (region irrelevant as long as it's authentic and good)
Hole in the wall but amazing quality sushi (I used to go to one off Houston, possibly on thompson)
Italian (used to like Babbo but have heard it's not so good anymore)
Greek (just not in Astoria - that's a little too far)
Any other delicious, non-touristy places would be appreciated.
