Robert Sietsema at Bowery Diner; Lauren Shockey at Brasilina
This week in the Voice, Robert Sietsema questions whether Bowery Diner really qualifies as a diner: "There are whelks, for God's sake -- just try requesting those in a Greek diner -- served raw or cooked with garlic butter. You'll also find periwinkles, Jonah crab claws, oysters, scallops, clams, mussels, snow crab 'clusters,' and calamari, variously available in cooked or uncooked form."
