Big Nick's Pizza Joint
70 West 71st Street, New York, NY 10023
Can't beat this place for a late night snack. I actually think the pizza is decent, and they have a good tuna and avocado salad. Not a fan of the burgers. Go to the other Big Nick's for that. Solid fries, though.

I commented on this post an hour ago, decided to move it down to her profile change post so I wasn't dirtying up her food review. But then again, what's that's matter right?

Such good soup dumplings. Totally worth the wait. Get soymilk, too, hot or cold.

The Leadbelly
14 Orchard Street, New York, 10002
Before last night, I didn't know much about the Leadbelly except that it was started by the people who run Fat Radish across the street. I had been to Fat Radish and had a good time, so I figured the Leadbelly would be similar. The cocktails were great (cucumber julep, tequila rose etc.), but the dinner menu was more of a health food/tapas situation. We had a slice of beet and goat cheese tartan, plus some salads (including a whole grain and nut dish that reminded everyone of savory granola). We also had an assortment of oysters, which were great. The decor of the restaurant was kind of confusing, because the name led me to expect a 40s Louisiana/Bible Belt-type feel. This was somewhat present in the distressed walls with semi-exposed brick and upright piano, but the large cactus in the corner and terrariums in the bathroom were kind of lost on me. I think I would go back to the Leadbelly for drinks, but definitely not for dinner. They weren't offering anything substantial enough. Oh, and one more thing: Some of the cocktails had jalapeño in them even when it wasn't advertised on the menu. I didn't mind because I like spicy stuff, but I would think that this would be off-putting to some people.

Vanessa's Dumpling House

You know, I don't think this place is so great. At first I was really into it, but everything is just too heavy. I still like the roast pork sandwich, but only because the pancake bread is crispy. I think the dumplings are too chewy.

Maybe my favorite restaurant in Manhattan. Salt baked shrimp. Roast duck. Ginger and scallion lo mein. Spicy eggplant. Try to sit so you can watch the guy at the front break ducks down with a huge cleaver on a massive woodblock. Amazing.

It is very important to discover graceful exits like that in the newspaper business, where it is such an important part of the ethics that you should never seem to be working.

Great dim sum. Make sure to get the special soy sauce and the baby bok choy if they have it.
