This week in the Voice, Our Man Sietsema falls in love with the lamb burger at The Breslin, while Sarah DiGregorio finds warmth, Scotch, and the best haggis this side of the Atlantic at Highlands.
Sam Sifton also pays a visit to The Breslin, where “yes, the food is good. But it is monochromatically good: it is 10 colors of fat. Excess can become wretched, and fast.”
Ryan Sutton takes a more practical approach to the “gastrodive” that is The Breslin: it’s affordable; it “can fill you up with a single dish.”
Meanwhile, Adam Platt drops in on Maialino, where the food is “served in small, Continental-size portions… Which means that by the time the “secondi” entrees rain down on the table, you might actually have room.”
Jay Cheshes heads to Ditmas Park for a taste of Purple Yam, deeming it worth the trip: “None of the fare coming out of the kitchen… seems tempered to win over nonnative palates.”
Steve Cuozzo praises the view at Robert in the Museum of Arts & Design, which “is worthy in itself of the museum’s epic, four-year struggle to remake the… Huntington Hartford Gallery.”
Gael Greene gets a kick out of Mexican wrestler-themed Casabel, with its tasty tacos and “marvelous gorditas.”
Tables for Two is quite taken with Tipsy Parson, noting how “[Julie Taras] Wallach and [Tasha Garcia] Gibson really know how to put together a menu.”
