Hi Chow Friends,
I used to live and work on Orchard Street many years ago, at the time it was mostly leather shop, fabrics and the old classic wares of the Lower East Side, but not too much food other then Katz's, Rathner's, Yona Shimmel, Russ and Daughters etc,. I've been living down south for the last twenty years and I've heard that the Lower East Side took quite a few turns since then. I will come to New York for a visit in September and I would like to know what is "cooking" out there, are there any good new places you can recommend in the good old LES? especially on or around Orchard and Ludlow Street.
