Barbecue | Chelsea, Manhattan

This was almost like being in Lockhart - including the smoke-house smell that clings to your clothes after you leave! Certainly a casual spot (picnic tables/serve yourself) but the food is really good and the portions are huge. We got the pitmaster dinner and have enough meat left over for 2 more meals! Brisket & ribs were delicious - even the white meat chicken is moist. More

Sushi | Upper West Side, Manhattan

I had an amazing experience here. I ordered the 16pc omakase which came with a sashimi starter and a miso soup. The quality of the fish was excellent, some of the best saba I've ever had. They cure their own ikura in sake and soy sauce and it was incredible. The price-quality ratio is unheard of, a similar meal at most other places would've cost between 160-200 where as it was only $120 with tip included. I will most definitely be back soon! More

Contemporary American | Harlem, Manhattan

Belle has been on my radar for some time. I was intimidated to walk in, but once I was in I realized there was nothing to be intimidated about. The staff is all warm, inviting, and charismatic. The chicken and waffles were INSANELY delicious. The best part was probably the banana truffle syrup. Yum. The radicchio salad was warm and nice. The hoho was good too. The specialty drink was underwhelming and over priced. The menu is limiting, more so if you dont eat pork. If they had more options and better drinks I would definitely give it 5 stars. More

I booked for a 7pm seating on Saturday to celebrate my husband’s birthday. It was a wonderful intimate experience right at the sushi bar. Everything was very fresh and flavorful. The tea and water were always quickly filled. It was a very relaxing environment. No loud music in the background. Just 7 or 8 other patrons seated around us. More
