South Of The Clouds is a casual spot in Greenwich Village that specializes in mixian - rice noodles from the Yunnan province of China. The small menu has five noodle options, which are served dry or in a rich chicken broth that’s been cooked for many hours, along with a few appetizers. We liked almost everything on the menu - especially the spicy bites of fried pork shoulder and the cold noodles with minced pork - and left very full for about $20 per person. This is one of the better new options for a quick and affordable lunch or dinner in Manhattan.

Miss Lily’s is a very sceney spot in Greenwich Village where good looking people can go eat spicy, tasty Caribbean food and stare at each other.
Mermaid Oyster Bar
We love the Mermaid restaurants, but an oyster bar? I guess fifteen or so varieties qualify you, but we were hoping for a deeper raw bar and a little more excitement. Where's the oyster inspiration?
Sticky's Finger Joint
We’ve got to admit that even though we aren’t the target audience for Sticky's Finger Joint, we kind of love this place. It's basically stoner food at it’s best and most ridiculous, with a menu filled with genius chicken finger flavor creations.

Jing Fong is a giant dim sum restaurant in Chinatown that’s great for a big group meal.
Spicy Village is not a romantic date spot. Unless styrofoam dishware gets you all hot and bothered. Take your friends, bring a bottle of wine, and prepare to spend $10 a piece on some delicious Chinese grub.
