Hot dining spots nearby

Where's a hungry student to eat on a night on the town? Mainly somewhere somewhat international - Japanese, Chinese and Mexican. Here's where some of the strollers down Locust Walk like to dig in.

  • ZACHARY LODNER, COLLEGE, CLASS OF '02 "Genji's the spot. The sushi is awesome."

  • NATHAN THOMPSON, COLLEGE, CLASS OF '99 "I guess the New Deck. The menu's not bad and you can enjoy a beer with it."

  • JULIE FITZPATRICK, COLLEGE, CLASS OF '99 "The White Dog. It's a nice place to eat. I like the atmosphere. It's comfortable. If your family's in, it's a nice place to go."

  • DAFINA STEWART, COLLEGE, CLASS OF '01 Actually, I like Won's. It's on 40th Street. They have good food and the service is pretty good.
