There's a new Thai on the corner of 5th Ave and 6th St. There's no sign yet, but the menu bears the name Thai Sky. It looks totally gringoed out, but after last night's positive experience in Manhattan (see my Galanga review), I'm not writing it off until somebody gives it a try.
Just up the street, 432 5th Ave, I believe, is the not-yet-open Edessa cafe/bar/lounge with a cool orange awning.
And on 7th Ave, close to the 15th St Olive Vine is a Moroccan place called the Kasbah Cafe. I wanted to try it this past Saturday evening, but they were closed. Perhaps they only serve lunch.
