  • Sao Mai

    Sao Mai

    Sao Mai ("Morning Star"), far from Chinatown in the East Village, offers a Vietnamese menu that doesn’t stray into Cantonese territory, nor does it offer a useless variety of redundant dishes. The pho is probably the best in town, with a light... More on Sao Mai »

  • Joy Burger Bar

    Croxley Ales

    Ask any dude walking around the East Village where to grab some cheap chicken wings and he'll probably point you here. That's because from Monday through Wednesday wings are only 10 cents each and only 20 cents each on Saturday (12pm-5pm) and all... More on Croxley Ales »

  • The Brooklyneer

    The Brooklyneer

    Manhattanites no longer have to cross a bridge to get their fix of Salvatore ricotta, Acme smoked fish, and Mama O's kimchi. Instead, they can head to the Brooklyneer, a new West Village bar and small plates restaurant celebrating the best of the... More on The Brooklyneer »

  • Sapphire

    Sapphire

    Everyone from Jersey folk to Village kids to uptown city kids get down and dirty on the dim Sapphire dance floor. It's not as trendy at the Meatpacking clubs, not as aggressive as the midtown ones-and isn't that a good thing? More on Sapphire »

  • Pavilion Theatre

    Pavilion Theatre

    I always wondered where parents hid the Slope's young adults (did they just roll tykes downhill when they started to outgrow the baby carriages?) until hitting the Park Slope Pavilion on a Friday night. Maybe it's just me, but the adolescent... More on Pavilion Theatre »

  • B Cup

    B Cup

    • There's no sign more indicative that spring has sprung than catching a glimpse of rhubarb on menus, and after the winter New York just faced, we've never been more amped to see it. Chefs swear by the vegetable's chameleon-esque charm in the kitchen: Its flavor ranges from tangy and bitter to bright and sweet, and its cinnamon red markings benefit every plate it touches. Here are just five ways that chefs across town are highlighting the punchy perennial. Crab Salad, Louro, 142 West 10th Street On Monday, April 28, chef David Santos will be... More on Louro »

    • Sometimes our hunger can't be contained within mere brick and mortar, and so we set out in search of the city's many courtyards, patios, gardens, terraces, and rooftops, looking for a place to put food into our mouths while enjoying the weather. A fine time can be had outdoors, whether gazing out at a beautiful vista or eating within the confines of ivy-covered walls. Outdoor dining in New York adds its own intangible spice, even if one of those spices is occasionally exhaust fumes. Here are our favorite places to bask in the airy glow of... More on Birreria »
