Every day you can see 7th and 8th graders eating lunch in the yard. Most of these scholars only eat from a small selection of neighborhood restaurants and delis. The following list identifies restaurants in the “lunch-out area” that may be unknown for those who are able to eat lunch out.
1. Awash – 947 Amsterdam Avenue at 106th Street: Awash is an Ethiopian restaurant where the average price of a meal is about $20-$30, depending on the order. The price may deter you from going to the restaurant, but the cost is definitely worth it. The perfect mixture of spices, meat, and vegetables is an experience that you will want to have again and again.
2. Hungarian Pastry Shop – 1030 Amsterdam Ave at 111th street: Hungarian Pastry Shop is a hole-in-the-wall cafe that might turn you off because of the dim lighting, but the colorful artwork will change your mind. The cafe offers a large variety of Eastern European desserts, and strong teas and coffees. The cafe includes many tables, where you can sit by yourself or join in a joyful conversation. Hungarian Pasty Shop has some of the best coffee and desserts in the lunch-out area.
3. V & T Pizzeria – 1024 Amsterdam Avenue at 110th street: V & T Pizzeria is a medium-priced Italian restaurant that offers takeout as well as sit down. The restaurant specializes in pizza, but there are other options such as pasta dishes, too. This restaurant would be higher on the list, but it’s because the food isn’t the best for takeout and every dish is portioned for 2 or more people.
4. Yasha Ramen – 940 Amsterdam Avenue at 106th Street. Yasha Ramen is a Japanese noodle house that specializes in Ramen noodle dishes. Their soups, yet salty, include many delicious flavors of chicken and soy. The decorations on the walls of masks from Japanese culture give it an extra authentic feel to it. Considering the average price of a Ramen dish, Yasha Ramen’s dishes are relatively cheaper because their cheapest soup is only $7.00.
