While walking to work this morning, I noticed that the immediate area where I work is getting ANOTHER Indian Bistro, this time, it's the chain Cafe Spice. I've eaten at the University Place location, but wasn't altogether impressed. I'm surprised that they picked this location - especially with the large number of Indian Bistros on 56th street b/t 5th & 6th alone.
Even with that grouping, it's very difficult to beat the deal of the Indian Fast Food (so they've called themselves)cart that's usually on 53rd & Park. Quick, cheap, and pretty tasty (though their bread leaves a lot to be desired. Rice is decent enough though).
Also: has anyone in the area tried the Taco cart on the corner of 6th & 55th? Saw him yesterday but stomach wasn't up for Mexican.
