Yeah, the dosa guy. Love that dude.

Also, I second shntn's post. I love Washington Square Park. It's been under renovations for a really long time now, so parts of it have been closed for years, but it should all be opening up pretty soon. Also, Mamoun's is great, so I'll second that as well. I haven't been to many burger places in the village so I don't know about those.

What I do know, is that there is an Indian foodcart on Washington Square South and Sullivan that is amazing. Really cheap and really delicious.

I am a vegetarian and therefore all of my suggestions are vegetarian. Let this list offset the burger discussion for anyone who is so inclined:

There is a really delicious ethiopian place across and down a little from Mamoun's. Also, Quantum Leap has the best vegetarian cobb salad I have ever had in my life. Red Bamboo is expensive but 100% worth it. Sacred Chow has delicious sangria, and weird food that non-vegetarian people will think is bad but vegetarians think is delicious.

Also the mushroom burger at Shake Shack is amazing.

I love the fake shrimp at Red Bamboo!

Also, shocked that nobody said this yet....POMMES FRITES IS AMAZING!!!!!!!!!! All they sell is french fries and crazy sauces to dip them in. At one point I was going twice a week (class down the block from there). So delicious it's scary

I know this is a touchy subject, but I think John's of Bleecker is the best pizza in Manhattan. They only sell pies though.

The drum sticks at red bamboo OMGAH

And yeah pommes frittes. If you're up in that area you should go to B&H dairy which is an amazing vegetarian polish restaurant which I think is on the same block. THE. BEST. BORSCHT. Better and cheaper than Veselka.

Plus, you can step through the secret door behind the phone booth and spend some of the money you saved at Crif Dogs at PDT.

Who cares about health code violations? Even if there were 44 of them.


Hahaha I hadn't seen that yet. I'm sticking by my story, though. It's some damn good pizza.

Skip PDT and go to Raines Law Room.

I like Raines better too (and I've been to both numerous times). I've been to a lot of those speakeasy-type places. They're pricey but a lot of fun.

I've never used the bathroom there, but if it's anything like the rest of the wallpaper, it's awesome. (Hint: look really closely.)

What a weird place for that NYC restaurant discussion to trail off.

(Edited to remove 'epic' as an adjective after skimming it again. But, still. You guys know your restaurants.)

Ha. That's because you haven't seen the wallpaper at Raines. (I assume, with no evidence to back this up.)

Somehow this has just totally sold me on NY; winter be damned. (Though I will miss In-N-Out, if we're gonna bring this back to food)

Silly question, but where do I find my username/password to check the status of my application on the NYU website? (I just applied yesterday, so totally possible that they send an email and I haven't gotten it yet...)

Yeah, they'll send an email. Don't stress if it takes a little while to come. It'll make it's way to you. Mine took a week (but it was the hurricane sandy week, so take that with a grain of salt)
