The Best Dishes to Order at the Cleveland

New York Max Falkowitz 11 comments

When the Cleveland opened in Cleveland Place in Soho last year, it didn't set out to reinvent the wheel. Its latest chef, Max Sussman, keeps that mission intact, but with some exciting ambitions. That means there's trout roe in your cabbage salad and a whole eggplant as a main course. Those and more must-order dishes after the jump. More

Big Flavors in Unlikely Places at Rosette

New York Craig Cavallo 1 comment

Chinatown's pulse beats fastest at Canal and Bowery, where the Manhattan Bridge spills traffic onto the island and, nearby, the diesel engines of buses idle. Few people consider the eastern reaches of the neighborhood, between the Manhattan and Williamsburg bridges, as a dining destination. But that's where Rosette opened at the end of January. More

How to Eat at Crazy Crab, Flushing's Yunnan-Burmese-Cajun Crab Shack

New York Jamie Feldmar 4 comments

The key to a successful experience at Crazy Crab is twofold: flexibility and knowledge. If you're looking for a full-blown Burmese or Yunnanese experience, you will be disappointed, as the menu offers only a handful of dishes from each cuisine. And if you're in the market for a legit Cajun seafood fiesta, then I have to ask what exactly you're doing in Flushing. But if you enter Crazy Crab with a plan of attack, an open mind, and a willingness to make a cross-cultural mess on your plate, you won't leave disappointed. More

New York J. Kenji López-Alt 6 comments

There are plenty of things to love about The Clam, Mike Price and Joey Campanaro's new shellfish-centric seafood restaurant in the West Village . The menu can be a little perplexing in both format and conceit (is this upscale seafood shack food, or is it New American market-driven? Can it be both?), but there are good bites to be had amidst the confusion. Here's what to order. More
