This Uzbek restaurant is located right in the middle of the diamond district on 47th street, on the third floor of an anonymous-looking building that’s home to a number of diamond dealers. Ideal for a quick but hearty lunch, this place is best known for its homemade fluffy and soft Uzbek bread, lepeshka. If you want to stay light, grab a shurpa beef soup or some classic borsch, or opt for the perfectly-dressed salad Taam-Tov. But if you’re going all out, try the house specialties like the chicken stroganoff or the various lamb chops. Also, keep in mind that this place closes at 8pm, so plan accordingly.
