But that doesn’t mean there was a lack of dining excitement in Brooklyn and Queens this year. Which is why we’re showcasing some of our favorite, far-flung spots of 2014, from Semilla, a fantastic, vegetable-focused tasting room in Williamsburg, to…

After all, there aren’t too many 1940’s-era dining cars left in New York with glossy, Art Moderne exteriors, which has made it a sought-after city symbol in television shows like “Law & Order,” and seminal movies such as Woody Allen’s “Manhattan.” So it only makes sense that the landmark eatery’s newest executive chef, Amanda Freitag, brings her own star power to bear as a food celebrity on Iron Chef & Chopped…

Unique Indian Fare at Awadh

Posted on Sep 10, 2014 in Ethnic Eats, First Bite, Restaurant Spotting, Reviews

For all of the cuisines represented by New York’s uniquely multicultural dining scene, there’s never been an especially strong showing of Indian restaurants. Especially really regional ones. Sure, there’s a sizable concentration of standard, tikka masala spots in Murray (Curry) Hill as well as a more recent handful of scattered, casual eateries representing the Southern, largely vegetarian side of the country. But there have been precious few places that have examined the more nuanced, hyper-regional dishes from very specific areas of India, making the newly opened Awadh a notable addition to the Upper West Side…

A Rhapsody in White: Obica Pizza e Cucina

Posted on Aug 8, 2014 in First Bite, First Bite, Restaurant Spotting, Reviews

When one of your nearest neighbors is the Italian megastore, Eataly, it takes a lot to stand out with regionally-sourced products and refined yet rustic cooking. But Roman export Obica has flourished for the last 10 years with an especially well-defined mission statement (The World’s First Mozzarella Bar). That’s why, when it comes to their new, sleekly stylish, 120-seat restaurant in Flatiron, they’ve smartly retained a distinct dairy through-line, with their prized and inarguably spectacular DOB mozzarella, flown in from Campania twice a week…

There may be more ramen restaurants than you can shake a chopstick at in New York nowadays, but that didn’t keep residents from eagerly anticipating the heralded debut of Ivan Ramen on the Lower East Side, which finally opened in May. Owned by native New Yorker, who catapulted to fame in Tokyo after opening two wildly successful and respected ramen-yas (an unprecedented accomplishment for a foreigner), Ivan Ramen launched his first stand-alone venture back in the States…
