Under Review–Sietsema At Harbour; DiGregorio At Andy’s Seafood & Grill


This week in the Voice, Our Man Sietsema swims over to Harbour, although he isn’t sure enough of his fellow New Yorkers will follow suit, while Sarah DiGregorio tries to stomach stinky tofu at Andy’s Seafood & Grill.

Jay Cheshes is less lukewarm about Harbour, with its chef Joe Isidori, who “cooks like a prodigy despite having spent most of his career hidden away in the Donald Trump machine,” deeming the food “so often thrilling.”

Bruni reminds us all that Peter Hoffman was the city’s preeminent locavore back before the term existed (when Dan Barber still had his training wheels), and allows Savoy to keep its two stars.

Adam Platt doesn’t think California transplant (and one of People magazine’s 2004 “50 Most Beautiful”) Govind Armstrong’s Table 8 fits in very well in New York, but admits the Cooper Square Hotel guests will probably like it.

Despite being able to get a glass of Prosecco in the bathroom, Restaurant Girl is also unimpressed by Table 8 after being barely distracted by “sauteed scallops over wilted spinach and the grilled baby chicken served alongside a red wine-braised short rib hash and cipollini jus.”
