New York Venues: Bowery Ballroom

    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.

    The only thing that is keeping Rubriosa from being one of NYC's classic Italian restaurants is time. Let's eat vodka sauce pizza while we wait.

    We are huge fans of Michael White, and are grateful that he's finally opened a spot downtown. As long as you don't under-order on pasta you'll leave happy.

    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.

    Il Buco

    Even some of the hottest restaurants have empty tables on "off" nights, but the fact that Il Buco is routinely slammed is a testament to the quality of the food and the unique character of the space. You won't find another place in town quite like this.

    Checking back in on Parm, now that the hype has died down. Three years later, the sandwiches are still excellent, and the novelty still makes up for the rest.
