The Restaurants of
Lorain Avenue

Mexico, Lebanon, Italy, Germany, Cambodia -- the names read like a World Cup semifinals bracket, and you'll find them all on a half-mile stretch of Lorain Avenue, where some of the city's most adventurous kitchens work elbow-to-elbow. Beginning with the authentic Mexican cuisine of Luchita's at West 117th and meandering westward, this culinary crawl unfolds like an Olympic Village cookbook: There's the foul medames of the Sahara, freshly crafted cannoli at Caffé Roma, barmaids bearing schnitzel at Der Braumeister, and what might be the city's best pad thai at Phnom Penh.
