SriPraPhai replacement?

Thanks to everyone for the great suggestions. We went to Chao Thai and enjoyed the food- it seemed to have the complexity of the food in Thailand (something I don't find at most NYC Thai places). I think they made it a bit mild for us because we had our 3 yr old with us... our mistake to not ask for spicy. Next time I'd like to try the special menu board. With all these great suggestions we will need to venture to Queens every weekend! Thanks again!

SriPraPhai replacement?

Having a weekend lunch in Queens and want to try something new... Looking for something like SriPraPhai before the expansion - a delicious hole-in-the-wall. Doesn't need to be Thai.... we love all food... spicy is good but not required. Thanks for any suggestions!

Intimate Relaxed Atmosphere with Great Food?

Looking for suggestions for a relaxed intimate place for a Sunday night 10 year anniversary dinner and maybe a good mellow bar for after dinner drinks. Good food is important but atmosphere is even more important.

We do not want a stuffy fancy place! Relaxed, cosy, intimate, dark... maybe even a little classic NY grunge...

We are spending the night in Soho and love to walk so neighborhood is flexible - just not too far uptown. Ideally a place where we can linger. Raoul's and Spotted Pig have both already been vetoed (because hubby wants to try something new). It does not need to be fancy.

Thanks!

Cheap & tasty eats near Hunter College

Bring your food, the neighborhood is a cheap eats nightmare. There is a small cafe just north of Hunter on the west side of Lexington that has decent soups, sandwiches and so so empanadas but no real seating. They also give a Hunter discount. The Hunter Deli, just beyond that cafe is probably the cheapest place with tables nearby, typical deli fare. Between the two there are two overpriced cafes with salads and sandwiches. There is also a diner on 70th and Lex that is overpriced and does not have great food, but is an okay choice for soup or something simple and a decent place to sit and grade or read. Equinox Gym (Lex & 63rd) has okay salads and entrees that are plain but seemingly healthy and under $10. Good luck! And please post if you find something better.
