The Delicious Dozen

Beauty & Essex

The eclectic pawn shop seen from the street is just a front for the beautifully designed and fabulous bi-level restaurant in the back.

Barrio Chino

Hip, tiny Mexican restaurant with a great bar.

Black Barn

The Thanksgiving menu at Black Barn makes me want to melt, sizzle, crumble and then happily drift off to sleep in the cab home.

Le Coucou

Stephen Starr and Chef Daniel Rose bring chandeliers, chanterelles and champagne to Lafayette Street and, yes, Le Coucou is French.

Cafe Medi

At long last our new restaurant is here! Cafe Medi opens to the public next week and early returns from tasting previews are full of “noms” and “mm-hmmms”.

The Fat Radish

This should not be news to anyone, because The Fat Radish has long cemented its way into the concrete jungle as a haven for comforting and FRESH food.

Lil Frankie’s

Frank Prisinzano’s ultimate neighborhoody, red sauce Italian joint exudes NYC character and has satisfied the cool/casual downtowners and in-the-know, out-of-towners alike.

Hearth

Until now you probably thought gnocchi was food. It’s not. It’s a bellyblanket that is wrapped around a flavor cloud.

Jack’s Wife Freda

Fresh, funky and stacked with fantastic fare this all-day bistro charms the West Village and Nolita at it’s 2 locations.

Speedy Romeo

Pizza is the main character in this story but Chicken Parm and a KC Strip Steak attempt to steal the show.
