Lot 2 in South Slope: A Neighborhood Restaurant That Any Neighborhood Would Be Proud Of

New York Carey Jones 2 comments

The notion that New York is one of the best restaurant cities in the country could mean a lot of things. Could mean the quality of its highest-end restaurants, the constellations of Michelin and New York Times stars—the Riperts and Bouluds and Kellers of the city. But one of the most exciting things, as I see it, is the unbelievable number of very good restaurants—where dishes are inventive and well-prepared, service is friendly and practiced, where you know you'll get an excellent meal and enjoy yourself besides. And Lot 2 in Brooklyn is one of those. More

New York Lauren Rothman 2 comments

When it opened in 1992, Jubilat Provisions' neighborhood of south Park Slope was heavily Polish. Though the neighborhood has changed and is now also home to Latin American immigrants and native-born Americans, Jubilat's extensive selection of housemade, house-cured meats has kept the locals coming in for two decades.

A Hamburger Today Max Falkowitz 12 comments

You love Pat LaFreida; we love Pat LaFrieda (and if you don't know Pat, his new show on the Food Network, Meat Men, will make a fine introduction). He supplies stellar meat to some of the best restaurants in New York City and all around the country, and a good percentage of our favorite New York burgers start with his custom blends. So when Pat offered to take us on a burger crawl of the city to learn how some of our favorite burgers get made, the only questions were, "How many?" and, "When do we get started?" More

Where We Drink: Beer Table

Drinks Liz Clayton 1 comment

It's not exactly a bar. Yet walking into Brooklyn's cave-like Beer Table, there's a welcoming familiarity, something warm and right about the small shared tables and lanternlike light that makes you feel maybe a little less weird about nestling up with a $30 beer. More

Brooklyn: Toby's Public House (a Checkup)

Slice Adam Kuban 20 comments

Clockwise from top left: Toby's is usually packed, especially in summer, when this photo was taken. It still weirds me out when a Slice review gets posted at a pizza joint. The pancetta-mushroom–black garlic pie and a Margherita.
