We've been invited to a dramatic reading at a theatre near Bleecker and Lafayette. Our hosts are then taking us to the Noho Star for dinner after. We have managed to never eat at this place in the past, nor have any hounds felt the need to comment on it (I did a search). Since this is a very well known place, I'm taking that lack of interest here as a bad sign. What should we expect? Do we want the Asian or American menu? Anything to especially stay away from? Are there any pleasant surprises?
