L'Annam is a Vietnamese restaurant near Union Square in NYC, it has a great selection of all of the classics. I had some noodles with roast pork, and it was very good. The service is a bit perfunctory, but they were accurate and prompt so not too bad. Room is nothing to write home about, but I'd go there for lunch again.

Pierre Loti Wine Bar & Restaurant (we went to the one in Chelsea) is a Turkish wine-bar in New York, really nice food, though they have "Americanized" the names of Turkish standards so we had to infer what things were from their descriptions. The wine selection was very good, service was nice, it is a small dish place so you build up the size meal you want. Not loud and a comfortable pleasant space.
