If you are struck by a need for spicy cumin lamb noodles while in Greenpoint, you are in luck. There’s a Xi’an Famous Foods location here, and just like all the others, it’s a great place to take your mouth to a very happy place for around $10. If you’ve been day drinking in Greenpoint all day, this is an excellent move (if you can get there before 9 or 9:30, depending on the day, when they close).
