Spice is a Thai chainlet in New York. I am a fan of the University Place location. The food is really good and the prices are moderate. The best time to go is lunch because of the specials. The ambiance is modern/funky and casual. The place is relatively small and sometimes you wind up waiting 10 to 20 minutes for a table, but it's well worth it. I recommend the curry duck and thai iced tea. To get there by train take the N or R line to 8th street and then walk to University Place, which is in between 5th Avenue and Broadway. If you have trouble finding it, just ask a NYU student.

The "Knitting Factory" is an awesome venue and not too far away. And, if you like dive bars, "The Blind Pig" is spot I like, it's modeled after a 1930s Prohibition style speakeasy.
