Totally agree with +Adrian Grenier  here - was beyond-impressed with my brunch there a few weeks ago. They serve a MEAN poached-egg toast w/ avocado.

The dynamic combination of flavors in every dish make me love this place, yet not too abstract to be inaccessible. Their penchant for sustainable wines (they even carry our very own SHFT wine) and sustainable foodstuffs is an added bonus. In fact their overall veggie-forward-and-meat-as-bonus philosophy is what makes this spot one of my go-to suggestions in the ever-burgeoning downtown restaurant scene below Delancey.

Couldn't agree more about Speedy Romeo.  And will definitely be adding the other spots to my where-to-eat-when-traveling list.  Thanks, +Adrian Grenier

Mary Chung Restaurant
464 Massachusetts Avenue, Cambridge, MA 02139
Mary Chung is honestly one of my favorite places of all time. It sort of of makes me want to move back to Boston...at the very least, anytime I'm remotely in the area I willingly go way out of my way to have lunch there.

These are the items that you must order: 1) Suan La Chao Chao (I dream of these on the regular...one of the best dishes you'll ever have). 2) Peking ravioli (these are amazing and the sauce it comes with is even more incredible - no where else makes it like that) 3) Dan Dan Noodles with Shredded Chicken.

Every time I stray and try something new, it's generally not worth it, and I think some people who have reviewed this place poorly did so because they aren't ordering the 3 gold-standard items. Last bit of advice: though heat level can vary, you probably want to go with people who can handle spice!

Ordering Types 

So accurate.  What is it that's so annoying about high-maintenance ordering?!

Also obsessed with this place!

Speedy Romeo
376 Classon Avenue, Brooklyn, NY 11238
One always needs a solid neighborhood go-to with great food. This is that spot. Blocks from my house, I can always rely on great flavors in my mouth. And it impresses guests when they come visit; especially the xenophobes afraid to leave Manhattan for Brooklyn.

De Lorenzo's Pizza
1007 Hamilton Avenue, Trenton, NJ 08629
This is more of a pit stop than a destination-worthy spot (then again, Trenton's, like, not exactly a destination...). The pies are nice and saucy (though I'm of the no-such-thing-as-too-saucy mindset) but the dough just isn't crisp enough. In fact, it veers dangerously close to cardboard-esque territory as a result (the crust isn't really worth eating unless you're using it to scrape excess sauce off the tray...). But if they could amend that dough situation, things would go from good to awesome.

The mussels here are always fresh, delicious and uniquely-prepared (love the Parm, Bisque, Thai, Acadian..) Fries are also fantastic. The service has been generally good, but the last time I was there, the host took a list of names for the bar and outside, even though these areas were half-empty. He then didn't notify us about seating after 30 minutes of us waiting for no reason. But when we approached the manager, we were seated at one of the empty tables immediately. The processes was confusing and extremely unprofessional, but the food was solid.

The clams with black bean sauce here is probably the best version around. You're going to want to eat the rest of the sauce with a spoon even when the clams are gone. And the Dungeness crab with sticky rice? Awesome. That rice is straight up addictive. I also recommend the salt-baked shrimp with chili.

This place seriously knocks it out of the park every time. The specials are ALWAYS worth ordering (had the fried chicken last night - so good), and the classics (condiments with roti, duck laab, duck with roti, jungle curry skate) are incredible. I've been back for dinner here probably more often than anywhere else -- which is really saying something -- and it's good for any occasion (date, parents in town, etc.). What makes it especially unique is that its really the first upscale, American-style restaurant that uses Thai flavors authentically, but it an entirely new way. Harold: nice work.
