so a friend is coming into town for his birthday. he lives in charlottesville, va and wants to eat 'ethnic' -- 'anything Indian, Southeast Asian,
Japanese, or of course really good Italian' -- since he can't easily get exotic food down there. he prefers to go out in the hell's kitchen area or the uws since that's where he'll be staying. i know some good places but wanted to see if anyone on the boards feels particularly passionate about anywhere in that neighborhood that falls under these categories...
also, one of my suggestions is wondee siam, but i haven't been since they renovated -- does anyone know if the smaller (better, according to these boards and my experience) one is big enough for a large-ish (10 ppl) party?
thanks for your help!
