If Indian's your thing there are lots of places to choose from on 6th Street between 2nd and 1st Avenues. Mitali (on 6th) is very good, and Royal (on 1st Ave. @ 6th) can be too. <BR><BR>You could try the 2nd Avenue Deli for big sandwiches. 10th is the cross street, I think.<BR><BR>There's also a Polish restaurant on 2nd Ave. and 9th, called Veselka that's very good.<BR><BR>Benny's Burritos (Ave. A &amp; 6th) is around there and that's good too. Cash only.<BR><BR>There's Holy Basil for Thai (2nd Avenue b/w 9th and 10th).<BR><BR>There's Mecca for Southern food (Ave. A &amp; 2nd St.).<BR><BR>There's Two Boots for pasta/pizza with a Louisiana flair (Ave. A &amp; 3rd St.)<BR><BR>Veniero's for coffee &amp; pastries (1st Avenue &amp; 11th Street).<BR><BR>I eaten at them all and can vouch for every one.<BR><BR>

Avenue Q is an adult puppet show. It is hilarious. You will have a ball. The theater is actually closer to Union <BR>Square or Gramercy than the East Village. 15th Street I think? On 18th &amp; Park you could try either Park Avalon or City Crab. Both have music with their Brunch.

A good restaurant in the area is Lan, which is on 3rd at 11th St. It's a short walk to the theatre from there and then a MUST is Veniero's after theatre for coffee and pateries. It is one of the BEST pastery shops in the city. on 11th and 1st Ave. <BR><BR>Have a great time.
