Los Angeleno moving to NYC

arisp | May 21, 2010 06:24 PM

Hola fellow Chowhounders,

I'm moving to NYC in a few weeks and I wanted to start off my new adventure with some food suggestions. While I've been to NY dozens of times over the last 18 years (my folks live there, but I never did), and I've recently learned quite a bit about the food scene, there are certain cuisines I know nothing about.

Looking for solid places, not over-hyped, not super $$, and hopefully easy to get a reso! Here we go:

Lebanese (or similar middle eastern) - Doesn't have to be a fancy resto
Greek (more for good, greasy gyros, etc, not Milos)
Sushi (been to Yasuda a few times and blue ribbon once - really liked Yasuda)
steak tartare - again, not really interested in going to a fancy french place...
Bar food (a la DBGB)
Where I can buy a good steak to cook at home?
And any other favorites of yours would be awesome!
