Yo, NYC Hounds - How about some suggestions for week day lunch on 9th Avenue? We fondly remember Manganaro's and Hero Boy, but its been nine long years since we've been back to our homeland. We've been through quite a gourmet drought.
Yes, we have the weather and the sand, but we also have the aging, hurricanes, and the absence of anything remotely resembling top quality ethnic cuisine (except for Cuban)!
How are the Greek places on 9th Ave that we've seen on FoodTV? What are the best Italian places on 9th today? Any other great places?
Will it be difficult to get down to Ground Zero from the 9th Avenue markets during mid-day M-F? We'd like to do the NYC Transit thing if possible.
Thanks for any advice.
