Jadis is a cozy wine bar on the northwest corner of the Lower East Side, and it’s good for a date or a girls night out. Or if you’re a bunch of guys in the market for affordable wine, comfortable couches, and some dark, laid-back ambience, it’s perfect for you too. Why not? Jadis is a neighborhood spot, and it doesn’t get as crazy as the rest of the LES.

Blue Ribbon Fried Chicken
Blue Ribbon Fried Chicken seems primed and ready to be reproduced and franchised all across the country. Whether that’s the actual plan or not, we have no idea. America could only be so lucky. Watch your back KFC. The Bromberg bros are coming for you.
Good Enough To Eat
The Upper West Side may not be flush with noteworthy dining out options, but they certainly have one meal on lockdown – brunch. Good Enough To Eat has been an institution up in these parts for a good 30 years, and a spot we'll happily go to for simple, heavy handed home cooking.
The Commodore is bad. Bad because merely looking at the food here will jack up your cholesterol thirty points, and worse because everything is so good that you’ll crave it all the time.
