As Fantasty said elsewhere, it is Friday afternoon…so let's try this and see if it works. I have a new game with very strict rules. "Best…": this means not somewhere which is okay, or which you

But Wilf said: "If there's nothing much good in any category for this area, forget about it. Only looking for things you'd actually recommend someone who likes eating and drinking to go and do."

If you're thinking of the one on third avenue, it's on the wrong side of third avenue.

Is Hasaki any good?

Some date insisted on going there once. It was OK.

I went there on Thursday. Yeah, it was OK. Not bad for the price, I guess. Ended up being around $195 + tip for two, including a lot of sake.

Based on a quick first visit, Villa Cemita in the old Bagel Zone space on Avenue A looks like a good addition to the neighborhood. The cemitas are huge, stuffed with good, fresh things--plenty of hoja santa. Reminds me of El Paso up in Harlem. Other plates coming out looked nice. Freshly made salsa with the chips.

Dinner tonight at Cooper's Craft & Kitchen - a sports bar on 2nd Ave. $1 fish tacos on Monday nights. Also had the brussels sprouts and steak tartare. Fish tacos were a little bland (had to dump hot sauce on them). Brussels sprouts and steak tartare were not amazing, but certainly better than they need to be for a place like this. Washed it down with a glass of cider. :D The bill came to $33 + tip. Not bad at all.

I dropped in on Zaragoza.

Still got it. Huitlacoche quesadilla. En route to East Berlin @169 Ave A, which has been approximately 87 different places since I started going. And yet Zaragoza is still Zaragoza.
