Hao Noodle first opened up a few years ago on 6th Avenue, serving excellent Chinese dishes like dumplings made of an egg crepe sitting in a chicken broth, or mung bean jelly in a spicy Sichuan sauce. They now have a new location on 14th Street, just at the edge of Meatpacking, with a slightly different menu featuring a large section of single-serve skewers. There’s no liquor license yet, but this place would work well for a nice but non-sceney meal in Meatpacking.

Zizi is a Middle Eastern spot in Chelsea that’s a great option for weekday lunch or any type of casual dinner.
Socarrat Paella Bar
No bigger than a subway car, Socarrat packs the majority of their patrons on bar stools around a communal table. The idea here is that they do paella the way it's done in Spain, as one big family. In such a small space, keeping the drool inside your mouth while you wait for your food is no easy task.
