Potatopia 378 6th Ave (near 8th Street) 212-260-4100
Looks like another plastic vaguely Asian-ish zippy fast food joint. Food frankly doesn't look great. But it's KILLERKILLERKILLERKILLERKILLER.
If you're into potatoes, as I am, you won't need much convincing to go try a potato-oriented restaurant. A good start is the smashed hit (fried, not mashed) with chicken. Add some tabasco. Ignore the fast-food-ish-looking squeeze sauces. Just eat and be delirious.
I drifted out in a trance state. May look for a sublet nearby.
