I'll posto accanto. The best panini with fluffy homemade focaccia. Wine list of the Gods. The staff treats everyone like a regular.

What is your favorite NYC restaurant?
Wonjo! Korean barbecue cooked at your table over white-hot coals ... it's like dinner and a show. And save room for their Kimchi Bibim Bop, too.
