I am an LA based Chowhound. My brother has recently moved to NYC to attend the French Culinary Institute. I am coming for a visit soon. I want to take him out to some impressive, but unexpected meals. We have both done all the usual foodie meccas (Babbo, Daniel, Nobu, Craft, Acuavit , Blue Ribbon, Jean-Georges, 71 Clinton, etc...) before.

I want this trip to be five really unusual meals. Either neighborhood places, old stand-bys, authentic ethnics, cheap dives, or just plain under appreciated places...I want him to have something to think about beyond all the "classic technique" he'll be learning in school.

Any ideas?
