Morimoto Has Officially Entered the Ramen-Ya Fray

Cuisine: | Featured in Ethnic Eats, First Bite, Restaurant

The owners of Chuko — considered by many to be Brooklyn’s best ramen restaurant — are quick to credit their mentor, Matsaharu Morimoto, for their expert noodle soups. But though ramen has remained a staple at every one of his eateries, scattered all across the country, the Iron Chef has never run a dedicated ramen-ya. Until now, that is…

At Haldi, A Michelin-Starred Chef Explores the Cuisine of Calcutta’s Jews

Cuisine: | Featured in Ethnic Eats, Restaurant Spotting

Haldi — an otherwise unassuming space on the corner of 29th Street — is now being helmed by the esteemed Hemant Mathur, an innovative chef who received Michelin stars for the high-end establishments, Tulsi and Devi (the very first Indian eatery to receive that honor in New York). But don’t expect fussy, high-falutin fare at Haldi either…

i Trulli

Cuisine: | Featured in Best Of, Holiday Eats

This rustic, Apulian restaurant will spread their shellfish celebration over not just one, but ten days this year, offering a four-course feast menu from December 17th to the 24th.  You might just want to schedule a repeat visit to try all of the under-the-sea options, as there are four different antipasti, primi, and secondi to choose from.  Why not order the Fritto Misto, Tonnarelli with Octopus Ragu, and Monkfish Osso Bucco one day, and the Wood-oven Roasted Oysters, Fregola with Clams and Saffron, and Swordfish with Bottarga and Breadcrumbs the...

Molly’s Shebeen

Cuisine: | Featured in Best Of

If you’re looking to hit up a new, trendy place in Murray Hill…well, don’t come here.  Molly’s touts itself as being  “NYC’s most authentic Irish bar,” and no one’s debating it.  With the fireplace crackling all winter long and sawdust all over the floor, this 50-year old pub is about as authentic as it gets this side of the Atlantic.  They serve all the usual suspects when it comes to beer, and the food is that of a traditional Irish pub (with some American favorites added in for good measure).  The Shepherd’s Pie is the only way to go if you’re really looking for tradition here, but you can’t go wrong with the Frontier buffalo burger if you’re in the mood for something you can eat with your...

Blue Smoke

Cuisine: | Featured in Best Of

From North Carolina to Texas and back, Blue Smoke serves up BBQ classics from every region. Think of it as Pan-American barbecue with Danny Meyer-stamped hospitality to match.  If you’ve got ribs on your mind (and let’s be honest, if you’re at a BBQ joint, who doesn’t?), then order the Texas Salt and Pepper Beef Ribs, Kansas City Spare Ribs, or the Memphis Baby Back Ribs. Or better yet, pay homage to each region with the Rib Sampler.  For poultry, head straight for the Applewood-Smoked Chicken, smoked “low and slow” over both hickory and apple woods. And the pulled pork is just as enticing, accompanied by pit beans, sesame slaw, and homemade white bread.  And don’t forget to check out the jazz club downstairs when you’re done...

Taproom No. 307

Cuisine: | Featured in Best Of

Looking for somewhere new to take your craft beer-loving bros?   One night at the Taproom and you’ll never go back to your old, reliable dive bar.  Over 40 beers on tap is reason enough to spend a night here.   From their own House Lager to brews, like Koko Brown out of Hawaii, they’re pouring a wide, hard-to-find variety of ales.  The best part?  You can try a new beer every time you go since their selection changes almost daily.  Plus, chef Stephen Durley believes that almost everything is better when cooked in beer.  There’s beer-braised bratwurst, the beer-battered fried pickles, and beer-brined burrata cheese, and that’s just for starters.  Sample Taproom’s tiger shrimp hush puppies or the pulled pork sandwich alongside a few daily beers on tap.  Better yet, ask the bartender to pair a perfect beer with your...

Brunch is more like it at Bar Breton. 254 Fifth Ave., near 29th St. (212) 213-4999. Dinner: Sun.-Thu., 4 p.m.-11 p.m.; Fri.-Sat., 4 p.m.-midnight; brunch: Sat.-Sun., 10 a.m.- 4 p.m. CUISINE: Casual French bistro VIBE: A bit like home OCCASION: Brunch, casual date DON’T MISS DISH: Croquettes de bacalao, Chelsea buckwheat galette, Mont Saint-Michel galette, Red Eye cocktail PRICE: Appetizers $11; entrees $21; desserts $7 RESERVATIONS: Accepted I think Bar Breton should change its name to Brunch Breton. Even Breakfast Breton would make more sense. Because the best dishes on the dinner menu are items you’d order for breakfast. Cyril Renaud, the chef and owner of this new restaurant on Fifth Ave. near 28th St., is from Brittany – or, as the French say, Breton. And Brittany is famous for its galettes. Galettes Breton aren’t dainty or delicate crepes....

Bar menu available till 2 a.m. Whoever heard of a month-long wait for a reservation at a restaurant at 24th and Third? But that’s what you get when brothers Joe and Jason Denton open a restaurant in Manhattan. Most of their places – ‘ino, ‘inoteca, Lupa – have been rustic, wine-focused spots. But at Bar Milano, on the border of Gramercy Park and Murray Hill, they’re challenging themselves and their clientele with upscale cooking...

Olana

Cuisine: | Featured in Reviews

A culinary homage to the Hudson Valley. 72 Madison Ave., between 27th & 28th Sts., (212) 725-4900 Dinner, Mon.-Sat., 5:30 p.m.-1 p.m.; lunch, Mon.-Fri., 11:45 a.m.-2:30 p.m. CUISINE Modern American.

PRICE Appetizers, $11-$18; entrees, $24-$38; dessert, $8-12. RESERVATIONS Recommended. New Yorkers take their neighborhood restaurants seriously. Every new eatery that opens around the corner reinforces the notion that you live in an important culinary zip code. Olana, which launched on the fringes of the Flatiron District two months ago, is a refreshing addition for residents along what has been a lonely stretch of lower Madison Ave. Olana doesn’t strut for attention with glitzy decor. The setting is civilly outfitted with spacious banquettes, red mohair chairs and cherry wood paneling. With...
