County NYC Review

County holds a lot of promise. There's a bit more flair and variations compared to ABC Kitchen, but also lacks a bit of the consistency.

The Palm – The Original, An Original

The first store on 2nd Avenue is (surprisingly) tight and cozy, while oozing with authentic charm. As a steak over, is not to be missed.

Perla Review – Great food, questionable system

Whatever the reasoning behind the reservation madness, it's really quite a shame because the food's excellent, and all of the hoops we had to jump through to get in served only as a distraction.

Pig & Khao Review – Mostly Pig

Captivated by the name, lulled in by the stark logo, Pig and Khao reaffirmed with every dish its name to be more than a simple boast.

Roadtrip Meals – Bouchon Yountville and Bakery Review

Bouchon is perhaps becoming a victim of its own success. The career defining success of The French Laundry has elevated Thomas Keller to such an elite status in the eyes of food enthusiasts that anything but perfection is viewed as a letdown. ...

The Musket Room Review

The Musket Room was a truly enjoyable experience, combining elements from both casual and elite dining into a well rounded and approachable concept. Well deserving of the Michelin Star.

Anassa Taverna Review

From its prime location, this two story restaurant is artfully decorated, with abundant natural light in the day, while putting out an enviable warm glow to pedestrians at night. Greek elements are gently hinted, not in-your-face.

River Styx Review – Which bank are we on?

I applaud the creativity and whimsical nature of River Styx. From the name to the location, it's as bold and daring as restaurants come. If the over-the-top nature can be slightly toned down for the entrees, this would quickly become a Brooklyn ...

The Americano – Brunch Mexicano

I have to give props to brunch at The Americano for being innovative. In a city where there're far too many places to find an eggs benedict, ranchero brought an element of surprise and fun. All of this in a serene dining space on 27th Street.

Telly’s Taverna Review – The Simplistic Beauty of Fresh Seafood & Open Flame

Telly's delivers an enjoyable meal that's simple, and should not be missed by anyone who enjoys charred seafood, especially the octopus. 20 years ago there were lines the stretched around the block. Today while there's not much innovation, the ...

Dinosaur Bar-B-Que Review – To Go South, You Must Go North…and Maybe North Again

The food is as Southern as New York can offer, even if it is on the more Northerly side.

Frontera Grill Review – Worth a Journey?

Frontera Grill lived up to the unreal expectations I had nurtured for years. Being from a culture whose food is masqueraded around everyday, I couldn’t help but muse and hope that one day we might have a champion for Chinese cuisine the same way ...

Fratelli la Bufala Review – Moz and Pizza

All in all, FLB is a great casual Italian eatery that doesn't take itself too seriously, and delivers the goods on pizza, pasta, and drinks. If you're in the Upper West Side, it's a great neighborhood treat.

Il Bacco Ristorante Italiano – Solid Italian on the border with Nassau

All in all, Il Bacco is a fine restaurant. Perfectly situated near the county line, it makes a great meal if you're headed to the miracle mile in Manhasset. Perhaps only by experiencing a good meal will you forgive them for the traffic. . . . ...
