Best Meat-and-Starch Feed New York 2001 - 145 Luncheonette
Ordering has become more complicated at 145 LUNCHEONETTE since they introduced the English translation of the Arabic menu, but the best meal is still the giant mound of scented rice topped with whatever kind of lamb they happen to be roasting at the moment. The starch component is amplified with a little potato curry dabbed here and there. Ask to have the meal served communally, and you'll also receive a bowl of excellent bouillon and a green salad. The roast chicken is also great at this casual Yemeni hangout.
