Every week, I document another dish that impressed and satiated me during my food adventures around New York CityEast of Sixth Avenue, Bleecker Street is where restaurants go to die. With the abundance of college students and tourists coming through here, you’d think this stretch of Greenwich Village would be prime real estate to open a food business. But unfortunately very few of the fast-casual concepts survive. Since I’ve lived in New York, I have seen more turnover on this street than anywhere else.
So when I saw a new place called Manousheh recently open on this block, I didn’t pay it much attention. I figured it would last a few months and then something else would come and replace it. Except this time I tasted the food. And if everybody else does too, I think it will be here for a long time.
My search for the best dumplings in New York continues….
As I was leaving Shu Jiao Fu Zhou, someone spied me taking photos and politely told me how great the place was and that he comes there every day. Not sure if that was a plea for me to give it attention or a warning to not make his tiny Chinese spot over-run with foodies. I wish I had that much power.
Either way, I’m glad I discovered it and I agree with that guy. The place is great.
