Roberta's Slays the Takeout Game With Garlic Knots, Pizza Bites

ny.eater.com — There's a lot to make sense of here at Roberta's Bakery, as the space is formally called. Thead-turning breakfast program, legit deli sandwiches, and upscale provisions suggest that Roberta's is jonesing to elevate the late-night bodega, one of the last frontiers of affordable, unrefined gastronomy.

ny.eater.com — This all sounds logical enough, but in practice things get a bit murkier, with a complex set of rules dictating when a restaurant actually has to change its formal letter grade, and with certain violations coming at the expense of good taste.

Clocktower is an ode to power, wealth, hard alcohol, red meat, and death. I award three stars: ny.eater.com/2015/7/28/9054… pic.twitter.com/JjwJJbrlUU

Sutton gets especially excited about the meat at newcomer Clocktower, and the fish and chips, too ny.eater.com/2015/7/28/9054…

Ivan Ramen's Cold Noodle Tonkotsu Is a Good Reason to Quit Ippudo

ny.eater.com — Now d on't get me wrong; I have nothing against hot soup in the warmer months. But there has to be a limit, and tonkotsu, depending on how its made, can evoke a fettuccine alfredo over cream of mushroom soup.
Jul 16, 2015

So @ivanramen is serving a cold noodle "summer tonktosu" and it's better than Ippudo in every way. My take: ny.eater.com/2015/7/16/8973…

Sutton loves Untitled more than MOMA, better than "schlepping around the exhibits without booze." ny.eater.com/2015/7/14/8954…

Jul 15, 2015

So 50% of Untitled's dining room is reserved for walk-ins, more than at most Danny Meyer restaurants. Cool, right? ny.eater.com/2015/7/14/8954…
