spicy. See yelp

Among the best sushi places in the city, and perhaps the best value
at lunch. There is a reason people start to line up 20 minutes before
the doors open. It's only open for lunch Tue-Sat (1-3). The sashimi
lunch always has an interested assortment of fish including some
toro. Menu --

This is a very good Raman soup place located near the Times Square
area. For $10 the Sapporo Ramen Special is a complete meal. It's
usually very busy --an mostly Asian who know. The restaurant is
Chao Chow Restaurant (CLOSED)111 Mott Street, Chinatown
Yes some say it's lacking in decor.. but it may have the best noodle
soup in Chinatown. Try the seafood noodle soup (yellow noodles)
or duck noodle soup. Duck alone is also great (Chao Chow Style Duck).
The Crispy Bean Curd Shrimp (deep fried bean curd with shrimp in
the center) comes with an excellent dipping sauce.

(Zagat rating of 24) David Chang started his restaurant dynasty
with Momofuko Noodle which was originally in the smaller Ko restaurant.
The pork buns are a must have dish here. The Momofuku Ramen receives
mixed reviews. See

Green Bo 66
Bayard St (between Elizabeth St & Mott St) New York, NY 10013 (212)
We consider the crab and pork soup dumplings here the best in NY.
Scallion pancakes also wonderful. But has it started to go downhill?

The Pho soup still remains consistently good here. Try the # 1 with
Beef Brisket and Fresh Eye Round. You want the eye round to be rare.
Some will order in the side and then put it in the soup to cook.
Their summer rolls with shrimp and peanut sauce are very good. Pho
Bang has branches in Queens and many consider those branches superior..menu

205 Allen St., New York, NY nr. Houston St. (212) 777-3200
Three locations for Mole now -- The Lower East Side, The West Village
and in Williamsburg, Bklyn(see
web site for other locations). Night time can be too noisy since
place is so small and tables are very tight. See menu

When Anthony Mangieri left this spot and moved to SF, Motorino's
Mathieu Palombino took over the spot including the wood burning
oven. Now you can get toppings on your pizza and if you want them
cooked more, it's OK to ask for it. There is an excellent lunch
prix fixe for $12 that includes a pizza and a fresh salad with mesclun.
Pizza has an airy (puffy) charred crust. Yelp (3 1/2 stars) ---

--NYC Restaurant Week debuted in 1992 when it was developed as a
one-time culinary event to welcome the Democratic National Convention
(DNC) to the City. Over the past 19 years, NYC Restaurant Week has
grown tremendously. It has expanded to include both lunch and dinner
offerings—three-course, prix-fixe meals for $24.07 and $35,
respectively—and extended to two weeks (including Sundays for some
restaurants) in both the summer and winter. Check NYCGO
