I'm visiting NYC in a couple of weeks and I'm looking for some great places to eat. I used to live in the East Village 5 years ago but am totally out of the loop now.
I need recommendations for the following:
Best Indian food, best brunch, best hipster/trendy place, best dim sum, best lunch spot downtown and any places that are really outstanding in general.
Also, I used to live above a restaurant called Esperanto (I think that was it's name) on 9th and Ave C. Is it still there/good?
Thanks in advance for all your help!
