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. ...

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.

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 ...

Le Philosophe Review – Profound Simplicity

I wanted to end this piece with a deep, philosophical quote befitting of the name of the restaurant. Then again, perhaps it's best to keep it simple and stick to the classical descriptors. A hearty recommendation. . . . → Read More: Le ...

Alewife Review – BAR, it says

Had we not come so late in the day, there would be no blog post at all. I’d have blacked out with their $25 all-you-can drink brunch deal and let the lucky dogs find this place on their own. But I didn't - and will most certainly indulge on a ...

Marlow & Sons Review

If you're reading this and your view of Williamsberg is molded after Lena Dunham's Girls, then Marlow & Sons is your archetypal Brooklyn restaurant. Dimly lit, old fashioned bar, uncomfortable seats, ancient furniture (or new ones made ...

eXo Review – Fine Suburban Greek Dining

With a very competent Greek menu, outdoor seating, full bar, and convenient access for Queens residents (right off the Van Wyck), eXo has what it takes to be successful. Though it's not quite destination dining, next time you're in the Flushing ...

DuMont Restaurant Review

Over 10 years ago, DuMont was ahead of its time. Today, it's still an attraction, just not as groundbreaking as it once was. . . . → Read More: DuMont Restaurant Review

Brunch at Mas (La Grillade)

Limiting yourself to a wood fire seems like episodes of Chopped that limited contestants to using the grill, it might be entertaining, but at times misses the mark. For those who enjoy a proper lunch during brunch time, Mas is a good solid option, ...

BLT Prime Review

BLT Prime is a happy medium between those two extremes. The steaks are expertly dry aged on premise, while non-beef items on the menu were designed by celebrity chef Laurent Tourondel. . . . → Read More: BLT Prime Review

Ken & Cook Review – Going Above and Beyond the Call of Customers

I was truly surprised by the food served at Ken & Cook, it goes not only beyond what's expected of a clubby, trendy restaurant, it's one of the better restaurants that I tried this year. As I returned to the crawling traffic on Kenmare Street, ...

Christos Steakhouse Review – Steak goes Greek in Astoria

It's great to know that I can get a great dry-aged porterhouse for two without leaving the borough. To find a top-tier steakhouse in Queens was quite a pleasant surprise, and the excellent appetizers that pushed beyond the normally expected fare at ...
