I'm coming into NYC this weekend to play culinary catch-up. The trip is purely to follow up on recent recommendations found on this board. Here are some notes I've taken in the last 6 months, which I need to clean up in order to maximize a short stay. Please keep in mind I'm looking to keep it simple. I've done most of the high end places so I want to keep it basic. For that reason, the Bangladesh food cart on 45th and 6th will be my first stop.
Bahn Mi (Veitnamese sandwich) I never heard of it. But it has rec'd more ink that any other food item. I need one place for the best one and maybe a little more detail on how to order and what to expect.
Burrito's - Again alot of passion on this one. I never realized they were worth such devotion. What's the final word?
Grand Sichuan - More a question of what to order. I read about the sour string beans w/pork. I need the rest or an order for a hungry party of two. Oh, would I be comfortable with a 14 month old. (no can of worms, please)
Spanish/Cuban - Cuban sandwich. Need the one best place?
Thanks for the help. I assure you every response will be pursued and appreciated!
