Staten Island?

Recommended Posts

Visiting Staten Island tomorrow and would love to have a great dinner. I hear there is a thriving Sri Lanken community there.

Flavor is my priority, but it would be nice to eat somewhere with a dining room. Less interested in a take out joint.

Thanks!

Grace

I've only been to New Asha on Victory Boulevard, which is more take-out oriented, but has a delicious crab curry and very good string hoppers and pittu.

This blog gives a good summary of the current offerings, though, and the writer is one of the fixers for Anthony Bourdain's Sri Lanka show for No Reservations, so I'd trust his views on authenticity.

If you're in Manhattan, Sigiri is still very good, though the excellent Nirvana is sadly no more.

From looking on a map, it appears you could walk from the Ferry to some of the places recommended on the blog. Does that work?
