Places we're curious about

Recommended Posts

Why isn't a crab shack on the LES on my radar? Anyone know about The Boil?

I think I just read something else about it, but didn't even know it had opened.


There's also a somewhat new place on Allen St. called Links that I'm a little bit interested in.

Daniel already posted about it here.

Thought we needed a thread on places we walk by, places we hear about, places we want feedback on without starting a thread about it (yet)...   So last night we walked by Lure Fishbar. I love the l

I went a few months ago. I liked the wings; the potato mochi are good if you don't mind the typical mochi texture. They're served with a sweetish sauce and lots of butter. The place really is small

John Brown's was decent in its Astoria incarnation. We also have Butcher Bar which I have yet to go to.

We've been there twice and thought it was better than we expected it to be. Not a destination place but quite good if you're around there and want a well done bbq.

In Japan he'll only go to Shake Shack.


And Sarabeth's for brunch.

Don't forget Union Square Tokyo.


And Grand Central Oyster Bar, Il Mulino, Nobu, Dean & Deluca, Doughnut Plant... no shortage of great imports for those who wish to avoid the questionable local fare. Too bad there's no Carbone yet.
