An interesting perspective. Even though I really enjoyed Lean In, I can't say I don't feel this way sometimes.

LOVE this Doodle!

Happy Hungarian National Day! Our doodle is inspired by the cockades many Hungarians wear today to celebrate the 1848 Revolution.

"Lots of people think kids are done with Facebook. No way, says Facebook: Kids love Facebook!  But, let’s say Facebook was concerned — maybe just a little bit — that the kids were no longer alright. Where should it go to find them?

If you say Snapchat, or Instagram, or something along those lines, you might be sort of right. But you’re mostly wrong. The best place to find kids on the Web is +YouTube."

Amazing chocolate chip cookies and crazy-indulgent hot chocolate with marshmallows. Bright, cavernous, modern space that's always buzzing with people. Great spot for a gab session with a friend or a casual first date. You really can't go wrong.

Okay Mexican spot but nothing to write home about. Big space with a private upstairs area that can be rented for events (includes dance floor and bar). Big downstairs bar. Food is generic. Could be a decent spot if you're in a pinch in Midtown -- also, good live music.

The Bowery Ballroom is a great venue for a show. The downstairs bar area is cozy and dark, with lots of seating along the outer edges. The main stage, upstairs, though, is my favorite. The room is small enough that it feels intimate, and the balcony is great (if you can manage to get up there). Sure, it'll be packed, but with a venue so small, you'll be sure to get a great view and feel like you were part of a special experience.

So if Maps had a 3.5 stars option, that's what I'd give Kipos. The decor and ambiance are great - very festive. Some of the food is great - calamari, Taramasalata, eggplant - but some is just okay (the scallops and shrimp that our server raved about weren't particularly well cooked and the orzo was kind of tasteless). That said, I'll definitely come back here for the lovely atmosphere, and get some small plates (I think this is where they shine) and a fresh salad.

Yama has fresh fish and good sushi at relatively reasonable prices - that's why you go. That said, it's incredibly cramped, with tables about 1 foot apart (you'll feel like you're dining family-style with strangers; the bonus is that you might make some new friends). The ceilings are also low, so if you have claustrophobia, definitely do not go here. Also, the waitstaff is borderline rude, so if you're sensitive, this is not the place for you. If you want quality sushi and don't care about the atmosphere (or like crowds), this is a good spot for you. Somehow my friend and I keep coming back -- I guess we're gluttons for punishment. That being said, I think the novelty has worn off for me.

This place is a bit hit-or-miss, but the atmosphere is wonderfully lively (this can mean long waits, but turnover is pretty quick), and it's 24-hours, so that's a big bonus. The pollo a la plancha is delicious and relatively healthy, with heaps of quinoa and a really tasty sauce. The desserts here are incredibly delicious. And I love the diner-y feeling here. Definitely go if you're in the neighborhood and you're looking for a quick, hearty, tasty bite!

I really wanted to love this place (I love Korean food, and was happy to see this space refurbished), but to be honest the food isn't great (not bad, just not amazing). I like the no-nonsense, Chipotle-style quick ordering concept, and the service was friendly. Prices were reasonable too. That said, maybe I'm spoiled by Koreatown in NYC, but the food here was just okay (I got the kimchi stew). I'd definitely go back to give it another shot, since it's one of the only Korean restaurants in town as far as I know, but only if I had a serious BiBimBap craving.
