I’ve been going to Bond Street for about 10 years now. Opting for the downstairs lounge as friends of mine have worked there, I’ve always had a good time. Not to be cheating on my East Village sushi mainstay, Takahachi, but Bond St. takes it to another level entirely. My last two visits with my […]

The food at Jin (252 Broome Street between Ludlow & Orchard Street) is way too good for just a single visit, so after a few months away, I went back for a second review. Luckily the Happy Hour special was still in full swing when we arrived. From 3:30-7pm during the week, there are several […]
Although I sing the praises of Takahachi, Fu Sushi is another great sushi spot in the East Village. It’s normally not packed to the gills, the staff are friendly & they serve up great food. I’ve been there a bunch of times, so basically here’s a rundown of what’s on offer.
I’m going to start by saying that this is a post about the lounge downstairs at Bond St (6 Bond Street between Broadway & Lafayette) & not the restaurant upstairs. The food comes from the same kitchen, but the dining experience can be as different as night & day (more on that later). I’ve been […]keep looking »
