Get Your Goulash On at Korzo Haus

Nicole Lam 6 comments

Though their claim to fame is the fried Korzo Burger, they also have some choice central European fare. On a cold winter's day, nothing is better than the Spicy Hungarian Goulash ($5 small / $15 large). More

It's Time for Kafana's Hibernation Fare

Max Falkowitz Post a comment

If the cold weather alone doesn't convince you, the long walk to Avenue C just might; cold snaps like this call for something like braised beans and sausage, and Kafana, a tiny Serbian spot in Alphabet City, does especially good versions of both. More

Austrian-born chef Eduard Frauneder (the Edi of Edi and the Wolf) has called Alphabet City home for nearly 5 years. When he's not at the restaurant, Edi's tastes range further from home, but he's still looking forward to ending a night of noshing at his new watering hole on Avenue C. Take a look at his neighborhood picks after the jump. More

A Sandwich a Day: Hanger Steak Sandwich at Cornerstone Cafe

A Sandwich a Day Molly Goldman Post a comment

When I hear that a sandwich costs $11, I never dismiss it, but I do question it. A pricey sandwich has to legitimize itself with good ingredients, a hefty weight, and all-around deliciousness. Fortunately, the Hanger Steak Sandwich ($11) at Cornerstone Cafe is no letdown. More

Maggie Hoffman Post a comment

A Sandwich a Day: P.H.O. Real from Sunny and Annie's

A Sandwich a Day Carey Jones 4 comments

Points for any corner deli serving an ambitious (and seemingly infinite) sandwich menu 24/7. But the P.H.O. Real just didn't do it for us. More

The Brunch Dish: Sweet Corn Pancakes at Back Forty

The Brunch Dish Nikki Goldstein Post a comment

[Photo: Nikki Goldstein] Back Forty's brunch menu is one of my personal favorites. Instead of all the usual offerings and a few interesting twists, it's 95% twists with a few kicked-up staples—all fantastically delicious. Even the servers are surprised... More

A Sandwich a Day: Sigmund Pretzel Shop's Smoked Salmon with Dill Cream Cheese

A Sandwich a Day Ava McAlpin Post a comment

I entered Sigmund Pretzel Shop planning to order the roast beef, horseradish and red onion pretzel sandwich ($7), but they didn't have it that day. I wasn't too disappointed, because the intense humidity that day made roast beef seem a little too heavy—their smoked salmon sandwich (also $7) appealed quite a bit more. More

The Brunch Dish Nikki Goldstein 6 comments

[Photo: Robyn Lee] I had a good feeling about brunch at Northern Spy. With their newly expanded dining room, they're more prepared to meet their demand—-but it doesn't mean the experience can come without a wait. So what's the... More

Great New York Burgers I Won't Be Having for Lunch Today

Ed Levine 8 comments

What is it with New York burger joints that don't open until darkness looms? Are they trying to imply that burgers are not to be eaten until late in the day? I'm in a burger-foraging mood today, and I would... More
