Sadelle’s – Review

Posted on Dec 15, 2015 in Hottest Newcomers, Reviews, RG's Favorites

Smoked fish with a schmear on bagels and babka. Doesn’t exactly sound sexy, right? That’s what I was thinking when I contemplated venturing to Sadelle’s on a recent Saturday night. But the lure of dinnertime caviar service at a cool, new downtown spot was just too strong a pull to turn down. Because while it may sound surprising, caviar options are few and far between. Afterall, caviar’s not exactly lowbrow…

L’Amico – Review

Posted on Nov 16, 2015 in Hottest Newcomers, Reviews

O-Ya – Review

Posted on Jun 30, 2015 in First Bite, Hottest Newcomers, Reviews, RG's Favorites

I’ll be honest: I thought I would hate O-Ya. It gave me anxiety right from the start. I mean, it’s not everyday that you have to put a credit card down for a mere two-top reservation. (Not to mention the $100 per person fee if you cancel within 24 hours.) In fact, the cheapest ticket to entry at O-Ya is $185 for an 18-piece “sushi” omakase. And if you’re really hungry or a glutton, you can splurge on a 23-course meal for a whopping $245 per person…
