- At Korean-Uzbek Elza Fancy Food, or Cafe "At Your Mother-in-Law," in Brighton Beach, Kuksu is "a cold noodle soup with beef, sliced egg, pickled cabbage and cucumbers, sesame seeds, and dill": "Cold and spicy, it was completely refreshing, especially with the fresh dill. I loved it. It tasted something my mom from a parallel Uzbek universe would make." [Bionic Bites]
- Octopus at Zoe: "One of her best dishes is an appetizer of tender octopus arms in a curvy salad with flat-leaf parsley, the Middle Eastern and North African spice paste harissa, a dab of super-thickened labne yogurt, and a strew of sharp-tasting green olives." [Fork in the Road]
- The new version of the Choinkwich at the Big Gay Ice Cream Shop: "The Treats Truck still provides the cookies but it's bigger than before and instead of caramelized bacon, they are using a made-just-for-Big-Gay-Ice-Cream version of Bacon Marmalade." [Eat to Blog]
- The polenta with caramelized onions at Schnitzel & Things: "The texture was nice, smooth and creamy, and most importantly it was good comfort food." [Midtown Lunch]
