Recently a new Italian restaurant named Luca opened up
on 1st Ave. around 89th Street on the east side. The
food is lovingly prepared to order and it is
reasonably inexpensive. Try the potato crusted salmon
for around $15.00, it's delicious.
Also, for quality and inexpensive Japanese food try
Tokubei on 86th between 2nd and 3rd. The food is a
bit nontraditional, but nonetheless, delicious.
