Yum yum yum! We just moved into Brooklyn Heights and have been on a mission to try all of the restaurants in our area. We’ve only made it to La Vara for brunch but can’t wait to go for dinner.
Courtney L. must be smoking some good good because the sign posted outside the
business CLEARLY states “Cook’s Tortas” - fix your GPS, girl! Jesus wasn’t on
your side that Sunday, for the devil took over your sight and did you wrong.
Enough with the jokes. CLEARLY the tortas here are NO joke. Birthed from the loins of King Torta on Valley Blvd. and that amazing Torta place that was on 3rd Street/Ditman? - I know a good torta or two. This place met all my expectations, and…
Clearly, the thing to get (for me, and you, too) at CSG are the sandwiches. Breakfast, Reuben, mother-in-law, Jawn, Cuban, turkey club, pork roll– these are my best friends, but my favoritest one is the mother-in-law. That beef and kimchee and the umami crunch of the roasted broccoli– I get it to relive the first instance I took a bite. And, yes, the turkey club is my second favoritest, it is also my hangover cure. I’d pay more than $12 to feel normal, some mornings. I’ve…
Cute place, simple menu, nice drinks, and fried chicken - i’m sold! and at
brunch you can get chicken and waffles! fried chicken was salty and sweet.
crispy, but not greasy. so delicious…and i had to fight my kid for most of the waffles.
The Riff’s Fine Street Food truck was the first stop of the day for me at the 2013 Nashville Street Food Awards. I tried a few of their dishes and loved all of them! I think this is the pinnacle of Food trucks. It was balls to the wall hot damn goodness!!! Can’t wait to catch up to them again!!
I really LOVE this place. My boyfriend took me here for our very first date and I knew I had a keeper on my hands ;) I liked this place so much I took my best friend here for her birthday.
I instantly love restaurants which allow you to make reservations for Sunday brunches. With a phone call a day earlier, I was able to secure a table for 4 at the time that I wanted to have brunch on a Sunday. Nice , friendly hosts. The dining area could have easily been someones living room. It was not too crowded for a Sunday.
I hit the Local Three brunch every Sunday I’m in town. I go to dinner here about once a month.
I was contacted by a rep from the restaurant and asked to come back. I have to say, my experience was completely different. I’m going to be a little skeptical and say that the fact that they invited me back had something to do with the better experience. With that said, here’s my review of Merchants.
Perla is definitely lively in the evenings, though still rather comfortable and relaxed for a restaurant that’s almost constantly packed. While the oxblood colored booths seem regal and very cushioned, the chef’s counter at the back of the restaurant is where it’s at. Sure, you may not get to socialize with the bartenders (who make amazing cocktails, btw) such is the case with the front bar, but the chef’s counter is much more intimate and dare I say, romantic. As…
If I could describe Lucy’s Fried Chicken in one word it would be: *prayer hands emoji*.
One of the best meals I have ever had - and it was vegan. We came for a
special tasting and it was fantastic. We tried everything:
The smoke broccoli soup was tasty and amazing
Artichoke Rockefeller was sophisticated and hearty
Live thee glazed carrots
Matsuri-taki was my favorite - the mushrooms were perfectly cooked and flavored
Great place for a happy hour! I was here for a special charity happy hour hosted by the Garces Foundation and had a great time.
This place is off the chain! Their smorgasbord of craft beers are as wholesome and satisfying as they are diverse.
Hello there Cap’n Crunch pancakes…wanna make out? Oh wait, you just want to make sweet sweet love in my mouth? Yea, that’s totally cool too.
I will say I miss the days of ordering my chicken parm from inside Torrissi Italian Specialties, instead of next door at Parm. That said, Parm is cute restaurant that still nails chicken parm as well many other Italian treats. I recommend getting a hero, it is 12 dollars and should fill you right up. But if you have room, I highly recommend the ice cream cake, as it is totally amazing.
Cheap and delicious. Service is fast. I came here just before they closed down and I ordered the crispy chicken wrap with a side of garlic noodles and devoured both quickly before succumbing to the food coma that made work an afterthought.
I got a gift certificate to this spot for my birthday and we finally got the chance to go tonight. It worked out very well; it was our 5 year anniversary! I read that we’d need a reservation so I called and made an early Saturday evening time.
I love dive bars so this place gets 5 stars from me because it is about as divey as they come. It reminds me a lot of the old Red 7 before it went through a fancy make-over.
Friendly staff, yummy food, and plenty of it. While the cemitas (sandwich on a sweet tasty bread) were marvelous, I’d say the homemade chorizo on the chalupa was the highlight - the chalupas are quite big.
