The National Bar and Dining Room Review

wonder who the restaurant is trying to attract, food-tv crazed fans or people who appreciate good food. The National is a mediocre restaurant at best, and when your mussels are raw, you tend to not have a favorable impression. . . . → Read ...

Geisha Table Review – Take Geisha, add a table….

Geisha Table is good enough, but restaurants that are good enough seldom stick around in Manhattan. Maybe they ought to turn it into Geisha Grill that serves Yakitori only, now that's a name. . . . → Read More: Geisha Table Review – ...

Sweetwater Review – Williamsburg Classic

Sweetwater is like your favorite pair of faded jeans: it won't impress a date, but it's damn comfortable and always a quick and convenient option. In other words, a neighborhood restaurant that won't break the bank, where you can sit out in the ...

Upstate Review – Beer and Oysters

My visit to Upstate shows us once again the biggest problem with oyster bars in NYC today: the wait. No wonder new oyster bars are popping up here and there. Upstate makes a great neighborhood destination, a place to placate an oyster deprived body, ...

Naruto Ramen Review – Upper (way upper) East Side ramen is actually quite good

For a neighborhood joint, Naruto Ramen is very good. If there was one in my neighborhood, it'd get my business at least once a week. Your bowl of noodles probably won't compare with quality you'd find at Hide-Chan or Ippudo, but that was never the ...

Red Hook Lobster Pound Review – Within the Proximity of Water

seafood on 3rd Ave just doesn't feel as good as seafood in Red Hook. As I explained in the beginning, it's irrational, but for what its worth, it made the meal memorable. . . . → Read More: Red Hook Lobster Pound Review – Within the ...

Veritas Review – Wine Centric Dilemma

The new Veritas is a dilemma. I cannot afford the fine wines, and I was underwhelmed by the food. If you're like me, then there are better alternatives. In fact, there are a few within the block. . . . → Read More: Veritas Review – Wine ...

Fish Restaurant Review – Go Often, Go Early

Simple name, routinely buried in Google searches but incredibly memorable to people in the know. To make it even more memorable, there's an ongoing $8 special of 6 Bluepoint oysters and a house drink (wine or PBR). No limits per table, no special ...

Restaurant Yamaguchi Review – Authentic Japanese Fare off the LIRR

Finally, the sushi and sashimi. At quick glance, it was disappointing to see that the main entree came with the imitation wasabi. As for the sushi, the rice was too soft and were clumped in areas where the chef used too much pressure. The fish ...

Carastina Trattoria Review – A Midtown Italian Alcove

What this little trattoria needs now is a strengthened menu, one that pushes the traditional somewhat. Classic flavors need reinventing once in a while, and with that, Carastina will truly be a neighborhood gem. . . . → Read More: Carastina ...

Pearl Oyster Bar Review – Simple Delicious Seafood.

With so many Mermaid Oyster Bars popping up around the city, Pearl unfortunately was not the oyster destination I was seeking. What I found instead was an above average seafood restaurant, that featured a damn good dessert. . . . → Read More: ...

Mai Cuisine – A Calorie Watcher’s Dream (it goes down easy too)

Touted as as both authentic and fusion, Mai Cuisine is something of an anomaly. It has the traditional menu of sushi, sashimi, and rolls for those not willing to trade in the calories. . . . → Read More: Mai Cuisine – A Calorie ...

Hunan Kitchen of Grand Sichuan Review – Why did I come here?

Hunan Kitchen of Grand Sichuan is a solid Chinese restaurant, but is nowhere near as good as Sifton makes it sound, and compared with its Flushing neighbors, really doesn't have a reason to stand out. . . . → Read More: Hunan Kitchen of Grand ...
