From TimeOut New York:
Whether you’re craving an artful tasting menu, a soul-satisfying platter of crackling fried chicken or simply a great bloody steak, there’s a New York restaurant that will satisfy.
One of my favorites is Mile End, in Boerum Hill, Brooklyn. Reasonably priced (for New York), eclectic, and usually SRO.
From NYT’s Dining & Wine:
Beautiful and earnest young people in architect eyeglasses sipping wine and eating chopped liver on pletzel like a canapé.
