Sushi Ichimura

Posted on Apr 4, 2016 in First Bite, Hottest Newcomers, Reviews

Upon walking into the glittering Le Coq Rico in the Flatiron, your hostess will likely ask you if you’ve been there before. A seemingly odd question, considering the sleek French restaurant has barely been open two weeks, until you realize she’s referring to the original; a largely identical, poultry-focused spot in Paris. This is far from being your run of the mill brasserie…

The Best NYC Restaurants of 2016

Posted on Dec 27, 2016 in Best Of, Hottest Newcomers, Reviews, RG's Favorites

From Keith McNally and Tom Colicchio, to April Bloomfield and Jose Andres, there’s no question that the NYC restaurant scene was dominated by heavy hitters this year (who else could be expected to afford such massively exorbitant rents?). And yet, a duo of perennially in-the-wings talents finally found their way onto the mainstage (we’re talking Dan Kluger and Floyd Cardoz), while other, newer names established themselves as culinary forces to be reckoned with; including Frederik Berselius (of Aska) and Greg Baxtrom (of Olmsted) as well as American in Paris Daniel Rose, who took the city by storm with SoHo’s truly phenomenal Le Coucou…

Fall 2016 Restaurant Preview

Posted on Aug 23, 2016 in Best Of, Hottest Newcomers

If you spent the summer away from the city, you probably already have a short list of places you need to visit upon your return; Daniel Rose’s Le Coucou (a surprisingly buzzy July debut) and Floyd Cardoz’s Paowalla (a welcome August addition) quickly spring to mind. But since fall is prime season for big deal restaurant openings, you’ll want to clear plenty of space on your dining schedule soon…

Inside dinnertable, NYC’s First “Reverse Speakeasy”

Posted on Apr 13, 2016 in First Bite, Hottest Newcomers, Restaurant Spotting

There’s nothing ostensibly clandestine about the goings-on at The Garret East. Make your way through the (well marked) doors, and you’ll find the music pumping, the crowds bumping and everyone drinking; in perfectly plain sight. But if — perhaps in a boozy search for the bathroom — you happen to stumble your way past an inconspicuous curtain, you’ll be confronted with a single, discreet buzzer on a wall, enigmatically demanding that you “Push For Food.”

Impero Caffe – First Bite

I was waiting around for Scott Conant to open his long-awaited, eponymous new eatery, Conant…
