Minimalist eatery with communal tables—better for group action than anything intimate involving conversation or whatnot. Loud, simple, fast, cheap, tasty. Ideal for quick lunch that won’t sit on your haunches like a ton of bricks. Spicy chicken with noodles in coconut broth. Coconut-crusted shrimp, washed down with mango mojitos. Vast veggie selection, too. Outdoor tables ideal for watching Union Square strollers (and NYU co-eds) getting more and more naked as summer rolls on.
