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.”
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.”
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.”
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.”
