A Sandwich a Day: Pork Belly Grinder at Aberdeen Tap

Chicago Sarah Song 4 comments

The open-faced pork belly grinder at Aberdeen Tap in West Town is a two-handed, I-wish-I-had-a-dinosaur-jaw sandwich, that is unapologetically tasty and daringly large. More

South Side Eats: Check out the Saturday Lamb Sandwich Special at Small World Inn

Chicago Titus Ruscitti Post a comment

Small World's history goes back a few generations. It's been a local haunt for drinks, chit chat, and Yugoslavian food, specifically the countries that eventually became Serbia and Croatia. More

Does Reservoir Raise the Bar on Uptown Bar Eats?

Chicago Lindsey Howald Patton 3 comments

Reservoir opened last year with an ambition to take its food up a step from Uptown's everyman vibe. Yet there's an odd combination of high and low-brow going on that could be a kink in the concept or just a mission to appeal to every craft drink-loving patron who might wander in. More

The cool-kid-yet-laid-back feel from the decor is present more than ever in the bar's new food. And more importantly, the menu is perfect for beer-drinking (and/or possibly hungover) football and basketball season. More

Eat This Now: Fire Chicken at Dancen

Chicago Nick Kindelsperger Post a comment

There's not much from the road that would convince you to give Dancen a try, let alone that it'd have something on its menu as fantastic as fire chicken. More

The Bar Food's No Slouch at Post Office, a Whiskey Bar in Williamsburg

New York Paul Yee Post a comment

The food at Post Office, a whiskey bar in Williamsburg that makes a mean cocktail, is comfort-food simple but surprisingly good, and the bar's crowd is much more civilized than many of its neighbors. More

Bar Eats: Cocktail Bodega

New York Nancy Huang Post a comment

The fresh-pressed juice and smoothie cocktails at the recently opened Cocktail Bodega are meals in and of themselves, but its eclectic menu of international street eats is also worth a look. Designed by Roblé Ali of Bravo fame, the short menu is a whimsical melting pot of flavors from the Americas, the Caribbean, and Asia, all served up cafeteria-style in checkered paper and red baskets. More

New York Nancy Huang 2 comments

Barraca, a newcomer to the West Village and sister restaurant to taperías Rayuela and Mocando, boasts late-night Spanish tapas and sangria until 3 a.m. daily. Chef Jesús Nuñez, formerly of the modern Spanish restaurant Gastroarte, takes a traditional approach to the cuisine here, offering items popular on most tapas menus such as Patatas Bravioli, Croquetas, Pan con Tomate, and Gambas al Ajillo.

Apps Only: Southeast Asian-Inspired Bar Food at Ducks Eatery

New York Ben Fishner Post a comment

The Southeast Asian inflected food at East Village newcomer Ducks Eatery is adventurous and playful without being overwrought. I stopped in last week to see what a meal of their small plates would look like. More

Bar Eats: Some Great Small Plates (and an Uneven Burger) at Prospect

New York Nancy Huang 2 comments

Opened just a few months ago in the heart of Fort Greene, Prospect already feels like it's been around for years, a familiar face in a neighborhood that's rapidly growing in the wake of the Barclay Center opening. The place has all the makings of the modern Brooklyn restaurant—reclaimed wood, local art, artisanal cocktails, plenty of locally sourced ingredients—but any presumption of pretentiousness is quickly wiped away with the warm greetings of a very friendly staff. More

New York Nancy Huang Post a comment

One of the hardest hit neighborhoods during Sandy, parts Red Hook have slowly been springing back to life, reopening restaurants and bars in bits and pieces. While places such as the iconic Sunny's Bar are still closed, others are open, albeit with limited services or menus. The beloved dive bar Brooklyn Ice House is one such place More

Bar Eats: No Name Bar in Greenpoint Moves in a Thai Direction

New York Nancy Huang 1 comment

Word got out quickly when Greenpoint favorite No Name Bar started "secretly" serving ramen noodles out of a tiny basement kitchen earlier this year. Now the still-nameless bar has swapped out its ramen menu for a Thai one created by a spunky woman named Nam, who also runs Am Thai Bistro in Flatbush. More

Bar Eats: Waterfront Ale House

New York Nancy Huang 2 comments

With its huge barbecue platters, hefty burgers, and meal-sized appetizers, Waterfront Ale House unabashedly serves up the style of "go big or go home" classic American pub fare not suited for dainty eaters. Still, it's not the size of the plate, but the little touches that make good food great—and this longstanding bar has perfected just that. More

A Sandwich a Day: Duck Ham at Terroir

New York Dana Abu-Dayyeh Post a comment

Although I have enjoyed many of the dishes on Terroir East Village's menu, I find myself returning to their Duck Prosciutto Sandwich ($11) time and time again. It's duck breast cured with orange zest, coriander, and thyme to make a very ham-like piece of charcuterie. More

Apps Only: Toby's Public House Isn't Just About the Pizza

New York Ben Fishner 1 comment

I tend to explore restaurants that I've never been to in this column, or places I've only visited once or twice. It's not usually a forum for me to rave about my favorite after-work bar, partly because my favorite after-work bar doesn't usually serve great food. Not so with Toby's Public House. More

Bar Eats: Huckleberry Bar in Williamsburg

New York Nancy Huang Post a comment

One of the first cocktail dens on a stretch of Grand Street now flush with bars and gastropubs opening left and right, Huckleberry Bar has stood the test of time as a neighborhood favorite. Open since 2007, the bar has seen many incarnations of its drink and food menus, but the focus has always remained the same: seasonal libations and simple eats with a classic Americana flair. More
