Raising a Glass to In Vino in the East Village

Posted on Jul 28, 2015 in All Things Wine, Restaurant Spotting

There may be a high intimidation factor when it comes to wine, but the vibe couldn’t be any more relaxed at In Vino in the East Village.

A New Start for Neta

Posted on Jul 16, 2015 in First Bite, Restaurant Spotting

Nick Kim and Jimmy Lau helped make Neta a star in the city’s already stacked sushi circuit, bringing their staggeringly high-end restaurant experience (at Masa and Bar Masa, respectively) to bear. But when the pair departed last year, to open their own, equally elite kaiseki spot, Shuko, it left Neta in a potentially awkward position — should they stay the course with $50 morsels of caviar-dotted toro, without the firepower of their two sushi celebrities, or find a way to set themselves apart?

Restaurant Spotting: Tito King’s Kitchen

Posted on Jul 7, 2015 in Restaurant Spotting

East Village stalwart, Jimmy’s No. 43, has long been about more than great beer — although with up to 50 hard-to-find bottles and 14 unique drafts on tap, it certainly has that, too. But owner Jimmy Carbone is equally devoted to food, whether he’s hosting an annual Cassoulet Cook-off, or welcoming in edible pop-ups, such as Revolving Dansk & their Danish-style hot dogs. Which is why he recently joined forces with King Phojanakong, the talented chef/owner of Kuma Inn and Umi Nom, to create a permanent, in-house eatery dubbed Tito King’s Kitchen — effectively making Jimmy’s No. 43 a full-on, 7-day-a-week dining destination…

Posted on May 20, 2015 in First Bite, Restaurant Spotting, Reviews

Chicago may be considered one of the next great food cities, but it recently lost a bunch of talent to New York.

Posted on Apr 15, 2015 in Drink Spotting, Restaurant Spotting

There’s no doubt that cider is on a serious upswing, especially considering the recent launch of Wassail, which is dedicated to the fermented apple beverage. But that doesn’t mean that beer is losing any ground as an increasingly respected wine alternative, and World of Beer — an upcoming, 5,000-square foot temple of suds — only cements its supremacy…
