Restaurants

  • Tortaria

    Tortaria

    Don’t be alarmed that this place is a partial offshoot of Caliente Cab Co., one of the city’s most notorious (and notoriously bad) margarita mills: The food at Union Square’s Tortaria is about a zillion times better. Not that it attempts too... More on Tortaria »

  • EN Japanese Brasserie

    EN Japanese Brasserie

    There are more than 40 locations of this izakaya-style restaurant in Japan; it¹s too bad not more of them have made their way to the United States. Executive chef Koji Nakan cooks some of the most refined Japanese food in the city, taking humble... More on EN Japanese Brasserie »

  • Sao Mai

    Sao Mai

    Sao Mai ("Morning Star"), far from Chinatown in the East Village, offers a Vietnamese menu that doesn’t stray into Cantonese territory, nor does it offer a useless variety of redundant dishes. The pho is probably the best in town, with a light... More on Sao Mai »

  • Lit Lounge

    Lit Lounge

    Marquee and Tenjune aren't the only places to dance in this town (but you're not there for the dancing, are you?). Lit offers stellar DJs spinning anything with a good pulse (though they tend towards the New Wave, and have for years),... More on Lit Lounge »

  • Croxley Ales

    Croxley Ales

    Ask any dude walking around the East Village where to grab some cheap chicken wings and he'll probably point you here. That's because from Monday through Wednesday wings are only 10 cents each and only 20 cents each on Saturday (12pm-5pm) and all... More on Croxley Ales »

  • Sapphire

    Sapphire

    Everyone from Jersey folk to Village kids to uptown city kids get down and dirty on the dim Sapphire dance floor. It's not as trendy at the Meatpacking clubs, not as aggressive as the midtown ones-and isn't that a good thing? More on Sapphire »

  • Rodeo Bar

    Rodeo Bar

    With the exception of a mechanical bull, Rodeo Bar has found a way to incorporate every joyous, grandiose Texan stereotype into one building. Positioned at the center of the room above the bar, for example, is a large oil tank painted red, white,... More on Rodeo Bar »

    • Spring made an impact on our dining decisions this week, and we finally felt ready to cast off the heavy meats of summer for the produce and seafood we crave in the warmer months. The best things we ate this week include a platter of artichokes, a whole-roasted fish, and a cookie, for good measure.Kinpira at 1 or 8, 66 South 2nd Street, Brooklyn, 718-384-2152 This sleek Williamsburg sushi joint does a well calibrated mix of traditional and modern raw fish offerings, but don't skip the foresake the soup and appetizer part of the menu just to...

    • Better Than: Soul food with an emphasis on screaming, shaking, censor-free soul. You knew the evening would be special as soon as the mac n' cheese came around. Before Kelis took the tiny stage at the McKittrick Hotel--made all the tinier by her 12-piece, brass-ridden band--concert-goers were more or less asked to take a seat and dig in. Dishes started making their way through the crowd, and various small plates were put down, licked clean and whisked away only to be replenished at a moments' notice. Duck confit on toast?
