In The New York Time's "B" section today is another disturbing story about the downtown Mom & Pop shops and small restaurants heading downhill.
Specifically, they mentioned a small Bangladeshi restaurant called "Taste of Tandoor" near the corner of Church and Warren Streets, which managed to support five immigrant families in the city. Now they're just about broke.
I have no idea about the quality of their food--I've never been there--but they were noted for their $4 lunches! Perhaps any Chowhounds who work or live in the area might pay them a call to help keep their business alive.
