New York City has some of the best ethnic foods in the nation.
New York City’s 10 Best Ethnic Cuisine Restaurants (10 to 6)
10. Spanish. Casa Mono. 52 Irving Place; Gramercy Park. Select from their tapas menu or order an entree. Casa Mono serves dishes from all corners of Spain and has received numerous positive reviews and awards over the years. Don’t miss out on their good selection of Spanish wines.
9. Russian & French. Petrossian. 182 West 58th Street; Theater District. Perhaps the most expensive on our list, but the food is exquisite. Top of the line food, liquor and service. Anything mixed with French cuisine is fantastic, but always come with a hefty price tag. Don’t skip out on their famous caviar, it is sold nationwide.
8. Thai. Land Thai Kitchen. 450 Amsterdam Ave; Upper West Side. This Thai restaurant may be the coziest restaurant in the city. Most tables are seated for two, so if your party is more than two, expect to wait. Recommend pad thai, dumplings and spring rolls to try. A popular destination with great food.
7. Peruvian. Pio Pio. 1746 1st Avenue; Upper East Side. The Matador combo feeds four and gives you a good slice of Peruvian cuisine, at a great value of about $30. The chicken, green sauce and fantastic sangria are a must. There are three other Pio Pios in Manhattan, but this one is my favorite.
6. Indian. Tadka Indian Cuisine. 229 E 53rd Street; Midtown East. This casual Indian restaurant is a great place for lunch or dinner. The food is delicious and rich; the naan is fluffy and made to perfection. Good prices and generous portions. Order delivery on a rainy day in NYC!
