Looking to try something new - 50th b/t 2nd and 3rd

starved | Oct 1, 2002 01:19 AM

I've lived in the area for a few years now and was hoping some local chowhounds could suggest some favorites in the area. I just entered law school and don't have the same budget I once had.

Some of the places I (used to) frequent are:

zarela
la gioconda - italian - great lunch special
mama mexico
luna piena - awesome backarea in the summer
montaparnesse - steak frites
phi lan (a vietnamese place on 45th b/t 2nd and 3rd), columbus bakery on 1st and 52nd
i go to blockheads once in awhile but find most offerings bland
suan (on lex and 65th) thai - is good but a little too far
naples 45 - great pizza

any suggestions for good thai, sushi, burger, pizza, chinese, etc

also, any special dishes

thanks so much
