It’s no Siberia, but the Café Tibet has to have one of the coolest locations in the city. It’s perched directly above some exposed outdoor train tracks but that hasn’t stopped the owners from turning its front patio, so small it can accommodate only two tables, into a shady, breezy retreat festooned with fake flowers. The menu includes inexpensive Tibetan specialties such as tingmo (steamed bread) and momos (beef, chicken, or veggie dumplings that can be topped with hot or very hot sauce), as well as rolls that are prepared at a tiny, three-seat sushi bar in the deli next door (Himalayan Sushi Inc.). Best part since the deli is connected to the café via a passageway, you can grab cheap Russian beers out of the fridge and crack them on the patio. Not a bad way to kill time while waiting for the train.
