    Quick, delicious Greek diner, where the ingredients are fresh and Nick himself puts them together. We had the souvlaki plates with a combo of chicken, beef and gyro, and the meats were savory and perfectly cooked and atop a fresh salad with feta. A great deal for only $9. He also makes the bread and most everything else from scratch. Breakfast is served all day. All the meals were under $10 and the burgers look pretty killer too.

    I was at a corporate event that used a Think Escape party bus and found the service to be about as good as it gets. The driver was courteous, funny and very careful on the roads and the vehicle was completely top-notch. But they went over the top by helping me recover a lost cell phone (apparently a bit too much party on the party bus). After they found it and I communicated that I was unable to retrieve it in person, they sent it to me via post. Awesome service.

    Recently, during a randonneur ride which passed Fairfield I had some serious issues with my tire and dropped in at Ray's for a quick fix. In a few minutes the team of guys there had my bike up and running - new tire, tightened up the spokes and got things sorted. They were really courteous and helpful. It was an unexpected and fantastic level of customer service and the shop had all kinds of excellent, top-notch gear. I was in a huge hurry to get back on the road, and they helped a ton. If Fairfield was a bit closer to home, I'd be delighted to make this my regular shop.

    These bikes are clearly stolen, the guy's a jerk and the place is a firetrap. Enjoy!

    Sure, it's the coolest coffee shop in, what? like 10 blocks. Problem is, I live across the street, have been frequenting the place for a couple months and the staff STILL takes the wind out of my sails. One day I go in and dude is completely nice, the next, the barista who condescends to serve me is totally icy and horrible. (This morning I waited for five minutes so two baristas could  check out some dude's fucking iPHONE APP!) The coffee is fine, but why the attitude? I want to like you. Why don't you want to like me? At least the Pizzaiolo dudes are friendly.

    I had one of those nightmare scenarios where I needed a shirt printed in 24 hours for my boss, and, after calling around Brooklyn, Andy was the only guy who was competent, quick enough and fairly priced.

    I was blown away by this place: the baked goods were fantastic, the folks behind the counter were welcoming, and the vibe was spot on. They even made good bagels. Actually nearly-good-as-H&H-in-New-York good! I loved this place enough to come out of Yelp retirement to give it praise.

    The service was spot-on, the ambiance was cozy (maybe even too cozy, given the loud, drunk birthday lady seated about 2 feet away who was sweating her way through the seven-course tasting with wine pairings) and the food was of a high quality. It was perfect for a nice dinner on the trip north, even if it missed the mark on some small things.

    Based on the suggestions of other Yelpers, we went with the Chef's tasting menu, opting for the smaller tasting menu of four courses. The food was mostly excellent -- fresh dishes that finished with a main of duck, everything in French preparation. A few points that took away from the experience, though both were minor, so I offer them as more of a heads up:

    -- Weirdly, the servings were just too damn big. We had the four-course tasting and it was A LOT of food. If you went up to the seven course tasting, you'd either die trying or waste a lot of food. Its a bit strange to complain about serving sizes being too big, but in this case, it was over the top, even though the food quality was very high.

    -- The atmosphere was great inside, but the courtyard, where the server first tried to seat us, was dim and resembled a mini-mall. This was weird, since the inside seating was so cozy.

    -- There was something else that is a bit more ineffable...but, comparing  the major national reviews from 5 years ago to our experience, it seemed a bit like a restaurant whose star is fading.

    What a drag! I had to spend the week in New York for work and stayed here for 5 nights. Luckily, the $400/night room was on the bossman's dime, or I'd have been livid with the lack of service and experience overall. First, the hotel lacks any kind of distinct personality -- the lobby looked like a 80s Las Vegas renovation. The rooms were smallish (not horrible though, or unexpected for New York) but the problem was there were ZERO amenities included in the price. No free internet ($16 a day!!!!!). No free gym ($12 a day!?!?!). I feel like you could do much better for the price, even in this part of Manhattan. The one star? That is for the kabab cart out front.
