Let’s call this one what it is – us getting it right the second time around. Maialino is outstanding, and we’re here to revise out initial sour review.
$$$367 Classon Ave.Brooklyn, NY 11238
Speedy Romeo is the best restaurant you haven’t been to. Put it on your Hit List and make the trip to Clinton Hill. Then feel free to thank us. On second thought, thank them.
$17 Prince St.New York, NY 10012
Café Habana is and always will be one of the coolest and (and best) places to eat in New York City. Yes it’s great for brunch, but we like it best during the week, when the crowds aren’t quite so crazy.
$$173 Ave. ANew York, NY 10009
Westville East is the ultimate utility spot, delivering the goods (literally) for breakfast, lunch, and dinner in affordable fashion.
$$310 S 4th St.New York, NY 11211
Shalom Japan is what happens when a pair of chefs from different backgrounds (Japanese and Jewish) meet, fall in love, and start making food instead of babies. This exceptional Williamsburg spot should be at the top of your Hit List.
$$$605 Carlton Ave.Brooklyn, NY 11238
The menu at James may not be all that original, but damn does it deliver the goods. Yes, you’ve seen kale salad and pork belly on every single menu this year, but chill the f*ck out. It’s still good.
$$$End of Freeman AlleyNew York, NY 10002
Freemans ranks among our favorite restaurants of all time. We’ve got a lot of history here, and the food, although not 9.0 worthy as it once was back when we started this site, is still really damn good.
