Burrito from Haab in Williamsburg. Should I call Guinness or something?

Quebec City rules at many things, including public art.

So glad this place has opened - having a movie theater within walking distance is pretty much a must for me. Great screens and sound, comfy chairs. Matinee prices for some shows. Popcorn could be better - but overall always a really pleasant, low-key experience.

After hearing about this place forever, I finally made it down to this Chinatown location, which I've heard is a bit roomier than the other Manhattan locations. The food is from a Western region of China, and has a very different flavor profile than your average NY Chinese restaurant - think lots of cumin and almost pappardelle-like noodles. We got ours with spicy ground pork - hearty and comforting. We also tried the lamb burger, which was decadently delicious, and a salad with cilantro and sesame dressing that provided a welcome light counterpoint. You order at the counter - and grab a seat either along the wall or at the large communal table. Now I want to come back and work my way though the rest of the menu.

The best place to see a show in Brooklyn - does indeed have a very Bower Ballroom, old-theater kind of feel. Sound and sightlines are terrific - love the upper balcony with the stair-like seating. Also has the best line-up of any venue in the area.

Obviously the art here is world-class, though I often feel like the annotation for the special exhibits is a bit lacking - can be overly academic without really pulling together the story being told. Also, since the redesign, the space provides some cool new views from the top floor, but overall, it feels very cold and doesn't flow very well. But for modern art, this is the best it gets in NYC. Film program is fantastic as well.

Cute new restaurant with a sweet staff in a really under-served area of Bushwick. Southern menu is hit and miss - we found a few dishes to be way too salty. Also the beer wasn't cold enough (or the room, for that matter). But prices are reasonable, and if I lived closer, I imagine I'd be back for a few of the dishes, especially in the winter.

Oh, Knitting Factory. After seeing a gazillion shows when it was in Manhattan, the new space can't help but feel like a little bit of a letdown. The booking is great, and sound system is pretty stellar, but the boxy room is just awkward, and the bar area up front seems to always fill up with an obnoxious crowd. Fortunately, the sound is pretty protected.

I used to work near this place, and there's not much else in the area that serves as a casual, just-slightly-better-than dive option. Drinks are meh, as is the beer selection, but it can have a fun crowd and the fireplace is great in the winter. Had some great times in big front booths as well.
