Send Your NYC Restaurant Questions to 'Ask the Critic'

On this week's Ask the Critic, Carey recommended some East Village and Williamsburg go-to restaurants to fill up before a night of drinking:

Rather than a warmed-over $1 slice, why not pregame with pizza at one of the city's excellent sit-down spots: Kesté or Motorino? And rather than a midnight Big Mac, why not start with a respectable burger? Whitman's is in the heart of the East Village, and they've got burgers for your every mood

See all her picks here.

Have a question of your own you want answered? Email with the subject line Ask the Critic to submit your question. All emails will be read, but unfortunately not all can be answered. We look forward to hearing from you!
