Department of Health Letter Grades, Contextualized

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.

The Clocktower Bucks All the Trends and Is Better For It

ny.eater.com — The setting for such largess is Ian Schrager's New York Edition Hotel, located in the MetLife Tower on Madison Square Park - which commanded the title of world's tallest building back 1909. Today, it commands the title of very expensive place to sleep.

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…

Untitled Reconfirms That No One Does Museum Restaurants Like Danny Meyer

ny.eater.com — The folks to thank here are Michael Anthony, who also runs Meyer's Gramercy Tavern , and chef de cuisine Suzanne Cupps. Together, they're serving some of the city's most accomplished vegetable-forward fare at very reasonable prices.

Danny Meyer and Michael Anthony do museum dining right. Untitled is really, really good: ny.eater.com/2015/7/14/8954… pic.twitter.com/WznxchJFmh

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…

Russ & Daughters Cafe Slashes Its Caviar Prices

ny.eater.com — One of New York's most high-profile caviar restaurants has cut its prices by up to a third, a rare occurrence for such a luxurious product, but a necessary adjustment in this case.

Santina's Breakfast Cements Its Status as the Restaurant of the Summer

ny.eater.com — That's not to say we need a 30-course tasting menu that begins at 6 a.m. and ends before the financial markets open, but given the ubiquity of buttermilk pancakes and pain perdu, it would be a bit more fun if more restaurants pushed us outside of our comfort zones in the AM.

I don't normally eat breakfast, but when I do, I choose Santina. My first morning food review: ny.eater.com/2015/7/7/89016… pic.twitter.com/gEgdm9021L

Not generally a big fan of eating bfast out (beyond eggs and bacon, anyway), but @qualityrye makes a compelling case. bit.ly/1HdEj4N

Of course @qualityrye was right and now all of my bfast meetings will take place at Santina. ny.eater.com/2015/7/7/89016…

Alder's (imminent) closure is yet another reminder that avant-garde cuisine, however accessible, has long had a rough go of it in NYC.
