Elise Kornack and Anna Hieronimus are the only employees of their business, so spending a lot of time in their shoebox-sized, yoga-studio-cum-restaurant Take Root (recently reviewed favorably in the Times) was going to be a no-brainer. Here's where they eat near their Cobble Hill restaurant. More

The Vegetarian Option: Dependable Middle Eastern at Waterfalls Café in Cobble Hill

The Vegetarian Option Lauren Rothman 1 comment

My favorite kind of restaurant is the neighborhood restaurant: a place right down the street that's short on frills but long on coziness, serves down-home but excellent food at fair prices, and where the quality never seems to suffer no matter how many decades old the restaurant is. Waterfalls Café is that kind of restaurant. More

A Sandwich a Day: Smith St. Cheese Steak at HBH Gourmet Sandwiches

A Sandwich a Day Molly Goldman Post a comment

You want to be careful when labeling a sandwich a "cheesesteak." Doing so cues certain expectations of a particular type of sandwich. But since the Smith St. Cheese Steak ($12) is in Brooklyn, not Philly, I neutralized my expectations and decided to go with the flow. More

Sugar Rush: Chocolate Cake at One Girl Cookies

Sugar Rush Kathy YL Chan Post a comment

An slice of plain chocolate cake is surprisingly difficult to find in NYC. Flourless chocolate cakes, molten chocolates, triple chocolate cakes, chocolate cakes with layered with buttercream and others with ganache and whipped cream: sure. But just plain chocolate cake? Rare! Luckily, they turn them out from time to time at One Girl Cookies. More

A Sandwich a Day: Slow Roasted Pork at Rucola in Cobble Hill

A Sandwich a Day Max Falkowitz Post a comment

There are good sandwiches, and there are great sandwiches. Then there are heroes. No, not those heroes. I mean sandwiches so good you take a bite and think, "wow, this is heroic." These sandwiches were born on a sandwich planet with far higher gravity than ours; a mere skip on Earth takes them into flight.The Slow Roasted Pork ($12) on Rucola's lunch and brunch menus is just such a sandwich.

TGI Fry-Day: Cod Fritter Falafel at Mile End

TGI Fry-Day Jessie Pascoe Post a comment

Mile End's dinner menu is not for the faint of heart. A compromise among these hard-hitting carnivorous entrées and, well, a romaine salad, is the cod fritter falafel ($11), which gives traditional falafel a run for its money. Shaped like falafel, these cod fritters have a light, crisp crust (no grease!) with a flaky fish interior. You'll wish for plenty more in your order. More

Staff Picks: Early Spring Dishes We Love in New York City

The Serious Eats Team 6 comments

Spring is happening in New York, and we couldn't be more excited (no, really look at slide 1—we're really excited). Tender, green vegetables are the order of the day, and we've already started chowing down. Of course Spring still has a long way to go, so we haven't devoured all our favorite veggies yet, but these have made a fine start to the season. Click through the slideshow to see all the early seasonal dishes we've loved lately. More
