A Hefty Pastrami Burger for a Hefty Price at Jeffrey's Grocery in the West Village

A Hamburger Today Noah Arenstein 18 comments

The Pastrami Burger at Jeffrey's Grocery is great, but its $19 price tag is hard to swallow. More

The Monte Cristo Burger at Umami Burger Is Better Than You'd Expect

A Hamburger Today Noah Arenstein 8 comments

Designed in collaboration with Ink chef and former Top Chef champion Michael Voltaggio, this burger is topped with Busseto prosciutto and Gruyère fondue and served on a French toast-ified bun dusted with powdered sugar. A first glance it seemingly appeals solely to gluttonous masochists and lovers of a good culinary mashup. Sadly, I am both. More

Umami Burger in NYC Misses the Point

A Hamburger Today Noah Arenstein 53 comments

Umami Burger just doesn't hold up against similar burgers in its price range. While the Manly Burger is a solid choice, the Original lacks balance and highlights the problems with making "umami" an end in itself. Like someone overloading a dish with bacon or fiery chilies, the end result is one-note and, frankly, misses the point. More

13 Great Breakfasts in the West Village

New York Linnea Zielinski 4 comments

The West Village is one of New York's more receptive neighborhoods to lingering breakfasts, from busy coffee shops to lazy cafes, no shortage of all-day bistros and a wealth of bakeries. So where do we go to start the day while we're there? That depends on the mood: doughnut or croissant, French scrambled eggs or Cuban heuvos rancheros? More

NYC: Burger Joint Can't Meet High Expectations

A Hamburger Today Noah Arenstein 44 comments

If I placed Burger Joint head-to-head, Burger Week-style against its most obvious competitor, Shake Shack, I can't see myself recommending Burger Joint. While I may return to the Greenwich Village location once the bar area is finished, the original location is best left as a novelty. More

First Look: All of the Cocktails at the Greenwich Project, NYC

Drinks Maryse Chevriere Post a comment

The latest from the folks behind the Mulberry Project and the Vinatta Project, this newly minted Greenwich Village spot is debuting with a cocktail list that aims to strike a balance between the accessible and the geeky. "I needed to come up with drinks that fit the season of, 'it's April, spring is here, but oh yeah, it just snowed last week,'" says cocktail director John McCarthy. His current solution for the season's bi-polar weather antics: focusing on vegetal and herbaceous flavors. More

Obsessed With: OatMeals, the World's First All-Oatmeal Bar

New York Erin Zimmer 17 comments

When I heard about the grand opening last month of OatMeals, the world's first oatmeal bar, I was equal parts jealous (idea stealer!) and uncontrollably delighted. More

A Sandwich a Day: Baked Salmon Pita at Taboonette

New York Kathy YL Chan Post a comment

At Taboonette, the newly opened offshoot of Taboon in Hell's Kitchen, pita sandwiches are the focus of the menu. There are classic kebabs and chicken shawarma, but I'm partial to Baked Salmon ($8.75), a filling number that still manages to be light and fresh. More

NYC Quintessentials: Arturo's Coal-Oven Pizza

Slice Adam Kuban 14 comments

Wood-fired ovens. Neapolitan pies. Fancy and inventive toppings. Neo-NYC-style. A Roman invasion. Amid these major and minor trends in pizza NYC's coal-die oldies soldier on. Same as it ever was, same as it ever was. So it is at Arturo's on Houston. More

Sugar Rush: The Hot Chocolates of Amorino Gelato

New York Kathy YL Chan 1 comment

At Amorino Gelato on University Place you'll find not one, but ten different types of hot chocolate on the menu. My personal favorite? The Hazelnut. More

Sugar Rush: Ekmek Kataifi at Village Taverna

New York Kathy YL Chan 2 comments

It's not the most attractive of desserts, especially with that candy red cherry on top. But push aside appearances, and this Ekmek Kataifi at the relatively new Village Taverna is surprisingly good. More

Daily Slice: Artichoke Basille's Meatball Pizza

Slice Lauren Rothman 7 comments

Like many of Artichoke's pies, the meatball slice is big, cheesy, salty, and greasy, but not in a bad way. If oily, rich, and filling while being plenty flavorful is what you're looking for, it'll do you just fine. More

Percy's Pizza: A Dollar Slice That Doesn't Suck

Slice Adam Kuban 1 comment

The problem with dollar slices is that you almost always get what you pay for. Sometimes not even that. Of those I've eaten around the city, the best I could say about the best of them was that they were cheap — and probably good for after-bar scarfing. But Percy's Pizza, a newish dollar slice joint on Bleecker amid all the bars and jazz clubs, might be the best dollar slice I've had. More

Sugar Rush: Spiced Caramel Panna Cotta at Otto

New York Kathy YL Chan Post a comment

At Otto there's always one dessert on the menu that isn't primarily gelato-based (though there will always be a gelato or sorbet component!). I dropped in over the weekend and was delighted to find Spiced Caramel Panna Cotta ($8) as one of the current fall offerings. More

Sugar Rush: Fig Mousse Cake at Gotham Bar and Grill

New York Kathy YL Chan Post a comment

The current seasonal special is a Fig Mousse Cake. It's pure in flavor, light and borderline foamy, topped with matching gelée. It rests on a thin cake layer that bears an uncanny resemblance to the much-loved Chinese sponge cakes. More

Fantastic Croissants, Sandwiches, and More at Mille-Feuille

New York The Serious Eats Team 4 comments

We loved the croissants at Mille-feuille Bakery Café when they first opened, but the more we go back, the more we're convinced this little café is truly special. More

NYC Quintessential: John's Pizzeria of Bleecker Street

Slice Adam Kuban 9 comments

Every city needs at least one older-than-old restaurant with a certain kind of cultivated rakishness — hard, straight-back wood booths that don't encourage lingering; graffiti-carved walls that conjure visions of 1950s hooliganism; grumpy signage. More

Sugar Rush: Almond Butter Financiers at The Adore

New York Kathy YL Chan 2 comments

The Adore has been around for awhile, and those familiar with this tiny French-Japanese tea salon/cafe/lunch spot tend to be loyal, myself included. All breakfast pastries and sweets are made in-house, and it's one of the few places in this city that offers a wide selection of Mariage Frerès tea. More

Date Night: El Charro Español

New York Jessica Allen and Garrett Ziegler 1 comment

By all accounts El Charro serves a mean sangria and snappy margarita. We're less sure about the nachos, on the menu, perhaps, to please the kids; and the music, a mildly disconcerting medley of Three Doors Down and Stevie Nicks. But the vivid cooking and utter lack of trendiness have their own charms. El Charro is best for: a date to el país viejo. More

Lunch To-Go: Fredi Sandwich Bar

New York Kathy YL Chan Post a comment

It only takes one visit to learn that the bulk of the business at Fredi Sandwich Bar is take-out orders and deliveries. More
