This week in the Voice, Robert Sietsema satisfies his craving for Thai at Talent Thai Kitchen, where “the food on the aggressively pan-Thai menu is worth whatever wait you have to endure.” Sarah DiGregorio discovers “what happens when you barbecue duck over an oak fire” at Fatty ‘Cue. (Hint: good things.)
Sam Sifton approves of The Mark, deeming the menu, “so unambitious that it is difficult to fumble… That doesn’t make it a bad menu.”
Adam Platt agrees that, at The Mark, “the entrées are more prosaic.” At Recette, he finds that the “modestly priced… small-plate, ‘urban American menu is full of all sorts of elegant and unexpected surprises.
Jay Cheshes has nothing but praise for ABC Kitchen: “Food that’s good for the planet needn’t be any less opulent, flavorful or stunning to look at. It’s haute green cuisine.”

Tables for Two deems La Sirène “the tiniest, least pretentious, more pleasurable French bistros in the city.”
