Time Out New York – 2008 Eat Out Awards. Vote Now
What’s the best food guide book of New York? You know how I feel about Zagat’s, and the Michelin Guide isn’t extensive enough. Personally I like the Time Out New York Guide the best. Why? It’s got great coverage in all neighborhoods and price ranges, it’s easy to use and the results are based upon a survey by the people for the people.
Here’s some of my picks:
Georgiaâ€™s Eastside BBQ
Fette Sau – In Williamsburg. They serve their BBQ by the pound!
Best new fast food
Go! Go! Curry
I haven’t tried Zen Burger or Maoz, but Five Guys is one of the go to spots in Midtown for fresh burgers especially with their long list of special toppings.
Best neighborhood bistro
I like Bar Tabc. It’s a friendly fun bistro in Brooklyn with a great brunch menu and awesome drink specials. On the corner of Smith and Dean, it’s got great outdoor seating which is key during the Spring and Summer.
Best pastry-chef-run restaurant
I’ve only tried the desserts at P*ong but the food looks and smells amazing.
Best new Spanish restaurant
El Quinto Pino
It’s not true Spanish, more fusion but the food is creative and refreshing. The space is also quite impressive, especially downstairs in the ‘grotto’ area.
