First Look: Gaonnuri in Koreatown

Chris Hansen 4 comments

Gannouri, a new Korean restaurant on the 39th Floor of 1250 Broadway in Koreatown, seeks to offer a fine dining atmosphere but its menu isn't jockeying for space with the new wave of high-end Korean restaurants. In fact, the eclectic selection of Korean pancakes, hearty stews, and meats grilled at your table may remind you of other ground floor K-town staples. More

First Look: Swine, Porky Small Plates and Charcuterie in the West Village

Sam Levison 5 comments

"We're not trying to reinvent the wheel here," says Chef Phil Conlon of his newest home. "I think of this as the kind of place I'd want to eat and drink at on my day off." Expect accessible, friendly food: bar snacks, charcuterie and salumi, and plenty of meaty (both literally and figuratively) entrées. Or, as he puts it, "things that taste good." More

Jodi Lapidus 12 comments

If you ever said to your plate of pancakes, "I wish this were more spherical, and bite-sized, and in 13 different flavors," dinkies might be just the thing for you. What exactly are dinkies? We tasted them all, from the cute to the WTF, to find out. More

Sugar Rush Kathy YL Chan Post a comment

Whimsy & Spice's Honey-Lavender Shortbread is sold in packs of six, each shortbread a classy three-biter measuring a perfect two-inches in diameter. It comes very close to the ideal shortbread in that it's neither overly buttery nor too heavy with the flower. More

Sugar Rush: Bircher Müesli at Peels

Sugar Rush Kathy YL Chan Post a comment

I've never been a milk-and-cereal type of person. But müesli? Oh yes! I usually make it at home, or order it at restaurants on occasions. Peels, however, is one of the few places I know that makes a version you can just pick up to-go. It's pre-packed and stocked next to all those glorious pastries and cakes, $7 for a filling serving.

Sugar Rush: Mont Blanc at Lady M

Sugar Rush Kathy YL Chan Post a comment

Mont Blanc generally has three elements: whipped cream, chestnut puree and and meringue. Lady M's version of the Mont Blanc ($9) omits the meringue, something which would ordinarily be unforgivable, but can be overlooked here simply because of the abundance of chestnut puree, an element most places are stingy with.

Baoguette: Great Vietnamese Sandwiches in Murray Hill, Possibly the Best Banh Mi in NYC

Ed Levine 50 comments

A banh mi (the word itself means baguette in Vietnamese) is essentially an Asian hero sandwich. The classic is filled with pâté, slices of what can only be described as pork loaf, pickled vegetables, fresh coriander, jalapeño slices. It's dressed with fish sauce, mayo, and hot sauce (usually Sriracha) and served on a warmed baguette. Could the chef-driven banh mi shop be a rising trend? More
