    Boutique Eat Shop is a chic NYC restaurant with eclectic decor and a hip ambiance. Their food isn't too bad either with a number of standout dishes. These include the pork belly with actual bits of watermelon for a refreshing dish. The lamb chops with creamy polenta have great texture. The lobster ravioli comes slightly spicy and you can taste each of the flavors. To round it off, you must try the ... read more >

    Dancing, décor and different chic is what you will find at 1 Oak NYC, and they have my eternal gratitude for the smoking area. This club doles out $18 mixed drinks, but give them a break, they have to pay for that expansive, raw oak flanked space and expensive sound system. The VIP area is set apart and features a central fireplace (roaring fire included) and a giant Roy Nachumm nude. It is a grea ... read more >

    Paul Kirk is co-owner and a Pit Master of National repute; he is also responsible for the rubs at Rub. Hundreds of awards under his gun-belt, he is the "Kansas City Baron of Barbecue". Rub is a significant arrival for Manhattan BBQ fans - a message from the BBQ Gods. Homesick Houstonians and displaced denizens of Memphis are bull-rushing this joint every night. The menu reads like a death warrant ... read more >

    The brain-child of Mark Thomas - Cafeteria, situated in popular Chelsea, started off shaky, but has found its footing and patrons can't get enough of the croissant French toast, mac 'n cheese (3 types), meatloaf and chicken pot pie. Locals are finicky and staff here, run a tight ship. Cafeteria is good for breakfast lunch and dinner, is both hip and comforting; the milk shakes are thick and the de ... read more >

    The fiery Szechuan food and addictive steamed Chengdu dumplings at Wu Liang Ye sees diners regularly returning for second helpings. The deep fried, battered prawn (in their shells) are enormous and chillied noodles are tangle of tingling taste steeped in chile oil vinaigrette. Their website says "Autbentic" Sichuan Cuisine but I am pretty certain they mean authentic, and this is how it tasted for ... read more >

    Omai is sleek and shares in the same understated yet stylish aesthetics of Nam – they are both very chilled and if you are looking for effortless eating, this is as it should be. They offer a similar menu, so you will certainly get more of the same, and it is always consistently fresh. The rice paper-wrapped confections are one of their raison d'être and in a freezing NY winter - coming out of the ... read more >

    Grand Sichuan is notable in that it supplies the Chinese Embassy with meals for meetings when the United Nations is in session. It is also notable for its authentic Chong Qing Hot Pot and this is what sets it apart from the shabu shabu rest. If you don't like it spicy, order half/half and sample the best of both worlds. Duck tongue, pig blood, duck feet, pig intestines are fantastic for exotic foo ... read more >
