Any price range, just looking for the best of the best here. Have had some pleasure with:
Candle Cafe -- healthy fare, mainly prefer the side dishes
Cafe Mingala -- Burmese, good preparations
Saigon Grill/ Vermicelli -- homogenized to the bland UES tastes but happy to have a Vietnamese spot here -- wish there were more!
Dallas BBQ -- actually OK for a chicken carry-out, and super-cheap!
Garlic Bob's Pizza for a slice of cheese.
