Long story short.
Grew up in the NYC area. Lived in the E. Village for a while. Started wandering around the US. Kept wandering and now am returning to the city to visit good friends for the first time in 9 years over Christmas/New Years.
My husband and I are extremely adventuresome eaters. We are also very budget conscience (he's a public school teacher/I'm a graphic designer). Obviously since I've been out of the area for so long I'm not up on all the good eats.
I know this is very vague an open (and I can narrow it down if possible) but any suggestions are welcome. We are more into interesting foods than dressing up. My husband especially likes organ meats. If anyone knew any good Korean or Russian places that would be nice also. We are staying on Ave B right off the park, so anything close to that would also be great.
The only must have on my list is Chinese scallion pancakes ... I know ... this is FAR from adventuresome but I haven't been able to get them all the place I've lived so I have a craving.
