Empire Steak House Review – A Familiar Sizzle

Is there never enough porterhouse to go around for the city or are we moving towards saturating the Peter Luger derivative market? Not with this meal at least.

Tanoshi Sushi – Holy Grail? Not Quite

The bill, without alcohol, came to just over $100 per person after tip, making it pricey for a regular neighborhood meal. Meanwhile the quality is not quite good enough to be considered destination dining.

Rotisserie Georgette Review

It is this unique front-of-house role that allows her to oversee the restaurant both inside and outside the kitchen, and in the case of Rotisserie Georgette, it works beautifully.

Circolo45 Review

I was genuinely impressed by Circolo45. It's a huge risk to revamp a restaurant months into operation, but seeing and tasting the results I'm glad the team made that critical decision. This is destination dining, for which the street is now ...

Sushi Dojo Review – The Culmination of Dedication and Passion

For Dave Bouhadana, his journey actually starts with learning the language, and absorbing the culture, and physically moving across the world. If you ask me, Dave's path requires a lot more commitment and passion. Therefore I cast my prejudice aside ...

Desmond’s Steakhouse Review – New Classic

There's a lot that Desmond's is doing right. With the location, it's an ideal destination pre or post game/theater. The only thing to do now, is to properly age the steakhouse, because in the minds of diners, the steakhouse also gets better with ...

Thalassa Review

In times like today it's unlikely to see these large scale restaurants that show such passion about the food. Recent years fine dining have mostly been on a smaller scale, while big box restaurants seem to forget what's on the plate Great authentic ...

Jeanne & Gaston Review – A Secret 14th Street Garden

Jeanne and Gaston is a pleasant find of a place, utterly unassuming next to the bars and madness. When every square foot is a kidney sold, the sincere luxury of a garden whets the appetite for the perfect summer/fall meal. A nice neighbourhood go-to ...

The NoMad Review – Making the Mark on North Madison

All in all, the meal was certainly more than adequate, and showed a creativity above and beyond the call of duty. However, at $79 a bird, expectations are accordingly raised. With that said, NoMad is a beautiful space, with dishes you could talk off ...

Day Trip Meals – The Supper Room at the Glenmere Mansion

At this point of the meal, many guests chose to move outside for a relaxing drink, or to smoke a cigar as they watch the sunset. I mentioned in the beginning that one of the benefits of Glenmere is its proximity to New York City. At this point this ...
