I'll be arriving alone in NYC on a Wednesday evening in late June. Staying at 90th and CPW. For that night, I'd hope to find someplace in walking distance (Broadway is close). I'll go elsewhere and with friends on the following nights.
I love almost anything foreign, though near home (Washington State) I can easily get good Thai & Japanese. I also would exclude French, since I spend months every year in France. Cocktails or "the scene" also irrelevant.
I'd appreciate some local suggestions.
