Their flat-rate brunch for $12.95 is a great deal. The food was not WHOA, but for those prices it's worth it. It's small, but it feels intimate. I came from brunch on a Sunday and noon, and we got seated right away. I'll be back, it was definitely good.

Hey Yelpers... Google+ Local is definitely worth checking out. Collaboration with Zagat? Yes, I'm in.

it just launched, so I've just been exploring! but so far, it looks really awesome. I love that it offers input from friends -- my friends know what I like. plus, the 30-pt Zagat scale is so much more thorough than any other review site.

The book nerd in me is going into overdrive -- Anna Karenina is one of my favorites, and this looks superb. What do you think -- can Kiera Knightley pull off playing the leading lady?

The Tumblr Meet-Up I went to this week reinstated my love of Housing Works...
reviewed:
Housing Works Bookstore Cafe
126 Crosby Street, New York, NY 10012
Get lost in House Works' floor-to-ceiling book displays, in their spindly staircase or even in their tantalizing cafe menu. For the hipster-esque independent bookstore lover, Housing Works is not only a place worth visiting, but it's a place worth nesting in, curled up with a good read and a steaming cappuccino.

As if their wide selection, great prices and old-timey ambiance weren't enough, their mission statement is in allegiance with fighting AIDS... so your know your money is going towards a good cause.

My favorite part about Housing Works? It's one of the only places in NYC where I stepped in at felt at home right away.

Cafe Habana
17 Prince Street, New York, NY 10012
This is a cute corner place in Soho that is DEFINITELY worth checking out on breezy summer evening in the city.

The grilled corn... the grilled corn! It is so, so, SO good. I know grilled corn is a dime a dozen during NYC in the summer, but their inclusion of chili pepper and lack of mayo makes this the best in the city.

I got the Pollo Mirado -- it comes with spicy spinach, and I just mixed the rice, chicken and spinach all together with some of their green salsa. It was the most perfect meal. Admittedly, I tried a bit of the fish tacos my friend ordered and thought they were sub-par, but the Pollo Mirado is very delish.

I will be back.

Do not let the schlep from the L train hold you back -- this place is awesome. I dreaaaam of the Eel Donburi, which consists of the most perfectly tender and generously proportioned eel I've had in NYC. The chicken wings, as mentioned, are also really great. I'm not a huge wings person, and even I couldn't resist a few. We also ordered the Gindara Saikyo Yaki -- the waitress said this blackened cod is a delicacy. She warned us the portion is tiiiiny (it really was), but the flavor was out-of-the-ballpark impressive, so it was worth it. I knock 'em a bit because even after a $62 bill, my date and I were still not totally full. This place is tapas-style, and if you're looking for a super-filling meal under $100, this is not the best option. That said? Great, great, GREAT Japanese food -- it's refreshing to see a place focus on Japanese food BESIDES sushi.

Either the unicorns adorning the walls of this tiny little ice cream shop have totally cast a magical spell on me... or the ice cream from Big Gay Ice Cream Shop really is THAT good. If you've never been, the people behind the counter will tell you to try their bestseller, the Salty Pimp. The Salty Pimp is awesome, but I must insist that American Globs (vanilla soft serve, pretzels, sea salt and chocolate dip) is the way to go. The salty/sweet combo combined with the perfect crunch -- mm, it really doesn't get more satisfying. The have a daily milkshake flavor, and holy gods of Saturday, their Horchata shake is to. die. for. They also have a really great mango popsicle. I knock a star for lack of variety. Sometimes you want more than a chocolate/vanilla concoction. And honestly, I feel like they could do so much with more flavors. Dude, froyo is a sham. Treat yourself to some real 'scream.

They're not kidding: this is literally some of the best pizza in Brooklyn. Tip: Get the veggie slice. It doesn't matter what season it is or what veggies are adorning your slice, it WILL be good. Guaranteed. Best's thin, NYC-style pizza is fantastic -- sure, a bit pricey if you start adding toppings (knocked a star for this), but frankly, worth it. Big slices (one's enough for this lady), fresh ingredients, the best crust probably ever. Their sandwiches are good, too. The pickled veggies they put in their Italian sub and their salads are unparalleled. The meatball sub -- omg the gooey goodness. Fantastic. Also -- we get delivery from here often, but this place is significantly better if you eat in store. It's almost always luke warm/cold-ish after delivery; when you're salivating at the thought of eating this stuff, it sucks to have to stick it in the oven.

Greenpoint needs a sports bar. And if you want something a bit more intimate (and a little less "typical sports bar") than Red Star, Keg & Lantern is your place. This place -- with its seriously wondrous aluminum can-adorned wall -- always has a fantastic selection of seasonal beers priced super reasonably, and while the environment can definitely get fun on "game day," it never gets douchey. They have plenty of TVs broadcasting a variety of games, so every fan is happy. Plus the have an intimate back room where they'll broadcast other important events (read: presidential debates), so it's awesome they're catering to the neighborhood in that way (also good for parties!). At Keg & Lantern, you'll get a mixture of old Polish men from the 'hood, plus your typical Greenpointy yuppies (I mean that lovingly -- guilty as charged). Definitely a place to check out, even if you're not looking to watch the game.

This place... just, no. In this neighborhood, there are so many restaurants in such a concentrated area, that there is really no excuse to go to Hot Kitchen. We started with their pork dumplings, which, OK, fine. They were decent. I mean, I've definitely had better (definitely), but I've had worse, too. Between the poorly-textured tofu and entirely bland sauces of the Ma Po Tofu, it may have been one of the worst Asian-style tofu dishes I've eaten in New York. The tofu tasted like chunky egg whites, and the sauce that encompassed it was literally Chef Boyardee-esque. ...and then there was the catfish. Charging $22 for this restaurant "special" should be criminal. Sure, the presentation is impressive - sizzling and bubbling above its own intoxicating flame, it surely looks delicious (and frankly, that was the most enchanting part of our meal!). But again with the BLAND. The word "hot" is in this restaurant's NAME... you'd think they know how to do spices and flavor. You'd think wrong. Please avoid. Not good at all.

Don't be fooled by the line that is doubtlessly filing down the street outside Friend of a Farmer on the weekends: it is bad and overpriced. I'm not sure why the brunch crowd hypes this place enough to wait in line, because $16 for a skillet of an incredibly runny egg -- and I say "an egg" because I truly think that's all the food I got -- mushed up with some cheese is seriously heinous. I give them a couple of stars because, of the small amount of food I got, the flavors were "there." They have no idea how to appropriately incorporate spinach into an omelette, and I think there was a grand total of one sliced mushroom in my "spinach and mushroom" omelette... but at least the potatoes were spiced well? That said, the lackluster service (I get it, I get it -- it's brunch and things are busy, but no excuse) did not make up for the mediocre food. They're sassy and can't even get an orange juice on the table in a timely manner. Skip/

Not hugely into biking, and scared you'll feel intimidated walking into a local bike shop? Fear no more, Silk Road is all the awesome with none of the pretention. Yes, stuff's expensive... but that's biking. If you buy a bike from Silk Road, you get 10% off accessories for up to three months afterwards. Take advantage of that! Besides that, they're very helpful, very nice and very lovely people. The store is small, but well-stocked. You won't leave disappointed.
