Rex Huang has a decade on most of the people in his line of work, and that's a good thing, because having less time for self-exploration keeps him focused. He left behind a career in business for the burners, getting his start in the business when he asked for one day to prove his worth as a stage a ... More >>
We eat enough to put the fat in Fat Tuesday just about every day of the year, so suffice it to say we're not following up that day of feasting with 40 days of fasting. And in our never-ending gluttonous soujourns, we've enjoyed a handful of dishes around town this week, including a fig and cheese sa ... More >>
We've combed the city once more for a list of cheap eats, tasty dishes under $10 meant to get you to your next paycheck. This week's roundup includes a dish ideal for weathering the polar vortex, a Chinatown mainstay, and a good, cheap burger that doesn't come from Shake Shack.
Our edible escapades this week took us up to the Bronx and out into Brooklyn with stops in Manhattan in between. We were particularly enamored of noodles -- they were tucked into a curry, swimming in a bowl of ramen, and covered in spicy red sauce. We also found a steak tartare worth loving and an E ... More >>
Multi-course degustation journeys have proliferated in this city over the years, and while an hours-long feast can make for a unique dining experience, the expense can take a toll. Lately, some niche restaurants have offered a solution: four- to five-course menus that don't break the bank and change ... More >>
Another week, another stretch of gluttony. As we've eaten our way through numerous NYC establishments in the last seven days, we've loved cold noodles, sausage and grits, and a Japanese ice cream parfait. Here's what we've been digging around town.
We're not even gonna talk about this weather anymore -- at this point, we're so sick of being snowbound that we simply refuse to be, well, snowbound. We're going out and eating, come (frozen) hell or high water. If you're in our (admittedly very cold) boat, consider defying the storm with one of the ... More >>
Eating out gets really expensive really quickly in New York City, which makes it a tough place to subsist if you're scraping by until your next paycheck or trying to save a few bucks. If that's you this week -- perhaps you lost a Super Bowl bet? -- check out our round-up of cheap eats, a list we'll ... More >>
A number of transplants are making waves in the New York City restaurant industry of late. David Bowien brought us Mission Chinese, an outgrowth of his successful San Francisco pop-up. Andy Ricker planted Pok Pok here, the first satellite market outside of his home city, Portland, Oregon. And Matt L ... More >>
The ball's about to drop on 2013, but we're sneaking in one last big list, one that feels particularly celebratory (and, um, apropos going into a season where we could all use a little liquid courage to combat the post-holiday blues and the cold). That's right, it's our best new bars list. Presentin ... More >>
Just a few more hours before we ring in 2014. Already feeling nostalgic for 2013? Take a gander at some of our biggest food stories of the year, and relive the last 12 months.
With tens of thousands of brick-and-mortar restaurants and even more kiosks, delis, and roadside stands where you can grab a bite to eat, there's no place in the world like New York City when it comes to food and drink--you could spend your entire life eating and drinking here without conquering all ...

Hi there, remember me? I'm Feral Hostess Cat, one of Laura Shunk's 10 worst people in NYC restaurants. I work the door at Chez Bowery, that new pseudo-casual, nose-to-tail-artisanal downtown comfort food joint everyone's just dying to try. Before you write me off as a cold, callous bitch from hell ...
