    Contra

    138 Orchard St.
    New York, NY10002

    And the pendulum begins to swing back towards Manhattan. For the first time in a long time, a restaurant that you’d typically expect to pop up in Brooklyn has instead decided to settle on the Lower East Side. Contra, complete with its young risk-taking chefs, daily tasting menu, and earthen table ware, is now open […]

    Russ & Daughters

    179 E. Houston St.
    New York, NY10002

    When the lights went out and the water came flooding, we couldn’t help but wonder if this could be it. If Sandy were to permanently conquer lower Manhattan, what would we have missed the most? A bagel with belly lox, cream cheese, tomato and capers from Russ & Daughters, the LES institution of smoked fish […]

    Antonioni’s

    177 Christie St.
    New York, NY10002

    A classic Italian joint in every way, except for the Australian staff and the french fries on pasta. Antonioni’s is different – and awesome.

    Freemans

    End of Freeman Alley
    New York, NY10002

    It’s painful going back and reading a lot of the reviews I wrote two and a half years ago, this one in particular. Freemans was one of my first stabs at a restaurant review. There was nothing Immaculate about my writing skills back then. Although its lost a little of its luster recently, we still […]

    Ivan Ramen

    25 Clinton St.
    New York, NY10002

    So this is it. We finally have our very own Ivan Ramen brick and mortar restaurant in New York City, after years of waiting and years worth of articles about the white guy from Long Island who became a ramen king in Japan. Does that mean we can stop talking about him now? We’re just […]

    Katz’s Deli

    205 E. Houston St.
    New York, NY10002

    As the Lower East Side slowly morphs into downtown Miami, there’s one thing that stands pat – for now at least. Katz’s Deli isn’t just a Classic NYC Establishment, it’s a landmark that deserves government funding at this point. Rumors of its potential “the rent is too damn high” demise return every year, but, thankfully, […]

    Dimes

    143 Division St.
    New York, NY

    And so the transition is finally complete. New York now has each element of the California health food pantheon. It started with the green juice trend. Now we have our own Cafe Gratitude. If you’ve actually been to a Cafe Gratitude in California, you’ll know that I am exaggerating when I make the comparison with […]
