Culinary excursion to the East Village/LES/Chinatown

seth203 | Nov 8, 2007 11:50 AM

I am interested in going on a culinary journey through the lower regions of Manhattan this Saturday night. I am interested in going to a couple of "cheap" places that make 1 or 2 things exceptionally well. Examples would be: Dumpling Man( very good Dumplings),S'MAC(Mac n'Cheese) or Pomme Frites (Very Good French Fries). could anyone suggest some more restaurants that are designed for 1 thing and 1 thing only?

Ideas are:

1. Crepes
2. cheese plates
3. Pizza
4. ???? I'm having a really tough time thinking of food

Thanks for the help,

P.S. This started when I was in college up at Columbia. We used to go to this place for really good grilled cheese(now closed), then pomme frites, and then the great American milkshake company (now closed).
