Reopened at last and welcomed by the hordes of eager diners lining up before the restaurant opens at 5 PM and continuing until closing. Definitely order the Peking Duck, expensive but worth it.

Delhi Diner

This new, nicely decorated and quiet place offers really tasty Indian food at moderate prices, as well as friendly and solicitous service.

Iyasare

1830 4th St.
845-8100
This new place in the old space of O Chame is upscale, modern, and features pricey Japanese food in unusual configurations with a new approach to traditional favorites. The Tempura Kakiage is a revelation.
