Dinner with the Parents

    $$$

    L’Artusi

    228 W. 10th St.
    New York, NY 10014

    An absolute classic. It hardly gets better than L’Artusi, and that’s been the case for a long time.

    24 Minetta Ln.
    New York, NY 10012

    All too often, we find ourselves playing the role of hype-squashers, injecting some much needed reality into a situation when people are falling over themselves because a celebrity chef just opened a restaurant with a master pizzaiolo and an indoor water slide. We don’t particularly like being the ones to point out flaws amidst adoring […]

  3. Mas

    $$$$

    Mas (farmhouse)

    39 Downing St.
    New York, NY 10014

    One of our go-to destinations for Fine Dining in NYC. Mas is incredible.

  4. Marea
    8.8
    $$$$

    Marea

    240 Central Park S
    New York, NY 10019

    Marea definitely needs some good Infatuation press…they haven’t gotten much love lately. Makes you wonder if people around these parts have even heard of it. I mean, it’s only been awarded Best New Restaurant in America by the James Beard Foundation. While we haven’t yet logged enough hours on the road to make that kind […]

  5. Charlie Bird

    $$$$

    Charlie Bird

    5 King St.
    New York, NY 10012

    Charlie Bird means New York. Or at least that’s what the introduction on the restaurant’s website says. There’s a Beastie Boys quote up there too, just in case you needed some extra convincing as to just how New Yorky this place is. Tough to argue with that. Now, obviously, no one thing can truly embody […]

  6. Maialino

    $$$$

    Maialino

    2 Lexington Ave.
    New York, NY 10010

    About a year and a half ago, we wrote up a less than glowing review of Danny Meyer’s then brand new Roman trattoria, Maialino. We had high expectations due to Meyer’s flawless record, but flaws were found, and verdict was levied accordingly. Steinthal actually compared the place to every great band’s worst album. Ouch. But […]

  7. Betony

    $$$$

    Betony

    41 W. 57th St.
    New York, NY 10019

    God, we’re getting fancy. Not long ago we would have prefaced this review with a “you know, we don’t typically eat like this” disclaimer, followed by some remark about how Momofuku is awesome or something. These days, I’m not sure we can get away with that. Too many tweets from Daniel, and let’s just all […]
