An excellent lunch special with Lori Mendorff Klugman. A very pleasant surprise! Faro and Gem salads were excellent. Carbonara was very nice : pasta cooked perfectly as was crispy pancetta, conservatively cheesed and nice egg yolk. This is one of the better Carbonara’s we had in the US. Cocktails and wine list not extensive but […]

We had a lovely dinner with friend las night everything was great except the mains. :: at Ristoro del Cinghiale The starters and bread were really amazing and had high hopes for the steak and ribs, Unforutnatly we received two orders of each.

We had a great dinner with friends at Tocqueville. The Truffled Grits with an egg was outstanding !! Mushroom risotto was rich and creamy. I hear the fish was perfectly executed. The Short ribs were as tender as butter and tasted great. Deserts also outstanding. Wine list was large and focused towards the higher price […]
Tanoshi Sushi is our favorite casual sushi place in NYC. They have 3 defined seatings ay 6, 730 and 9. It’s only 95 for the Omakase menu which the only menu. They do offer a few special items at additional cost after the standard menu. They have a BYOB policy which is a very nice […]
We continued Restaraunt Week at Perry Street. The meal was amazing from service to beverages. We started with the Steak Tartare and Fried calamari. The Steak was served in a beautiful presentation with a fried Quail egg. The Calamari was perhaps the most tender we have ever eaten. The entrees were the Butter Poached Lobster […]
Our first visit to the “New” Union Square Cafe…I wish it were still the old USC !! It has a very corporate vibe to it unlike the warmer local cafe of days past. They have insituted a non-tipping policy which has some advantges to the employees but certainly the extra wages are pasted along […]
Le Bernardin has been around the NYC dining scene for decades. It’s a seafood based restaurant with a meat and vegetable dish thrown in for those guest that come with the seafood lovers. If your not a seafood fan there are much better options at other resteraunts. Proper attire is required in the dining room […]
Very authenic Northeastern Thai food on the LES in NYC. I was delighted by the flavors as well as the moderate prices of both food and wine….I would highly reccomend SOMTUM DER to anyone that enjoys Thai food.
We are big fans of Marea so we decided to try the Chef’s other retaraunt during restraint week. Once we got the food we really enjoyed our meal. The pasta was classic MW excellence ! The only problem with Morini is the hostess and coat check people. They seem to want to turn customers away […]

This is not Tex-Mex but rather the real deal. They produce some of the freshest most authentic Mexican food, I’ve had outside of Mexico. Remember I’ve been to Mexico […]

[flickrset id=”72157603357433508″ thumbnail=”small”] I have dined at the Union Square Cafe several times and have never been disappointed in anyway. The menu is always “Fresh” and creative. Service is friendly and professional.
When I heard one of my Flickr contacts was taking on a new position as Chef at ZUZU Ramen in Brooklyn NY, I knew I had to visit. I loaded up the car with four hardy eaters and set out to try everything on the menu. The Amuse-Bouche of Tataki of Bonito Loin Pickled beet salad […]
