Way over in the far Southeastern corner of Greenpoint is Little Dokebi, the second spot from the Dokebi (in Williamsburg) people. This is a great neighborhood spot for Korean and Japanese food ranging from bibimbap to spicy brisket noodle soup to Korean BBQ (grilled either at your table or in the kitchen) to fried chicken to korean tacos. If that roundup wasn’t clear, this menu is big. And the cozy space is perfect for an affordable group dinner where everyone will find something they’ll like.

A tiny little ramen spot on the Lower East Side, serving up some very good soups that aren't as heavy as many others.
Waiting in a line outside of any restaurant seems a bit silly to us, but Tomoe is arguably one of the best sushi restaurants in the city, as you will see by those patiently standing single file out front on most nights. And it certainly isn't the atmosphere that's got people queued up on Thompson Street. The place is a dump.
Toriko is a yakitori spot in the West Village that serves omakase menus focused on excellent grilled chicken skewers.
