Le Miu. Went there last night.
Just check out the menu here.
We spent rather more than we’d intended. But it would have been worth it if
we’d spent twice as much. Quite possibly the best sushi I’ve ever had in New
York. Make sure you order the salmon toro, and the fluke. Nothing too exotic:
no sign of the freshwater obscurities one used to find at Jewel Bako, say. But
friendly service, magnificent food, and an unpretentious atmosphere make for
the best addition to the East Village dining scene in a long time. When my wallet
recovers, I’m definitely going back – and next time I’m sitting at the
sushi bar, because that’s what this place is all about.
Zum Schneider. Seems to think that
it can prevent eviction by sending a petition to the Supreme Court of New York
City. Huh? Would like some background on this.
e Vino. Can’t get enough of this place. I still think the original, on 1st
and 10th, has marginally better coffee. But the wine here is wonderful, as is
the food, and the atmosphere and service are spot-on. Can’t imagine going anywhere
for a drink or a coffee or a snack else if I’m anywhere near Union Square.
