Robert Sietsema at Mile End; Sarah DiGregorio at Bromo Satay House
This week in the Voice, Robert Sietsema samples the "deeply scarlet, slow-smoked beef brisket" at Mile End. Sarah DiGregorio checks out Bromo Satay House, where "generally, the meat and fish are delicious, while anything in a broth is not."
Sam Sifton awards two stars to Prime Meats for food that "is executed with a rare degree of excellence, from the salad with its silky nap of dressing and perfect, peppery greens to the complementary textures and deep flavors of the chicken." [NY Times]
Ryan Sutton isn't impressed with Pulino's, declaring that "[t]here are many good pizzerias in New York. Pulino's is not one of them. Chef Nate Appleman's Left Coast, arugula noodlings just miss the target." [Bloomberg]
Gael Greene braves Penn Plaza to sample the goods at Lugo Caffè, where she enjoys "mostly delicious Italianish food for New Yorkers -- excessive, occasionally a bit over-the-top, as in the good but not-very-Italian meatball pizza." [Insatiable Critic]
Tables for Two files on K! Pizzacone: "That every bite tastes like run-of-the-mill pizza isn't the most upsetting drawback. Paying a premium to eat a cone of pizza in the nucleus of touristdom makes even the most confident native feel like a chump." [New Yorker]
