When I heard Mie Jakarta had closed down, I was heart broken. But now another Indonesian restaurant has popped up in the same location so my heart has healed!
The space is still small, although it looks like they might be opening a basement level in the future. The bathroom is located downstairs, where you have to go outside, down the stairs, into the basement and all the way back. It's a little odd.
The menu showcases typical Indonesian meals such as Gado Gado (steamed vegetables in peanut sauce), Satay Ayam (skewered grilled chicken with peanut sauce) and Beef Rendang (beef curry). I loved that they offered three types of chili sauces (aka sambal), including my favorite - Belacan, which is a sambal with shrimp paste so it's a little more potent and salty. Each dish ranges from $6-$10 and none are heavily portioned so ordering family style is a good way to go! We ordered several apps and entrees and between the 4 of us, the bill came to $47.
The one thing I wish they could add to the menu (which Mie Jakarta offered) are some traditional Indonesian drinks but could also be a dessert time, such as Es Cendol. Sky Cafe is still new so I'm hoping they might add this in the future!
This spot is CASH ONLY so don't forget to come on an empty belly and plenty of dolla dolla bills in your wallet.
Watching a show at the Beacon Theatre is an experience in itself. The venue is small but gorgeous and makes you feel like you're stepping back in time.
There is no bad seat in the house, the seats itself pretty comfortable, the acoustics are great and the staff are great at dealing with the large crowd.
Isn't that all you need from a venue when watching your favorite comedian?
As a fan of self serve froyo, glad there's finally a place in my hood! The dessert options in this area are very limited to only what's in the freezer aisles of the shops so very happy to see Funkiberry on my way home now. Right in time to beat the summer heat!
The place is bright, clean and the young staff are nice. Plenty of froyo options (a big fan of their pistachio and cappucino) and they have the typical selection of toppings and sauces.
Credit/debit cards accepted, no minimum.
Visiting Bareburger is the one place where you can order your burger to your liking in every way. You don't need to be that awkward, weird person asking for substitutes or omitting toppings. How many places will let you have an ostrich patty on a tapioca rice bun with grilled pineapple, fried egg, sharp cheddar, brisket bacon and curry ketchup*? Think about it people.
If you're not in a booze mood, go with their milkshakes. I usually go with chocolate but one of these days, going to go a little crazy and mix some flavors up. Chocolate & raspberry perhaps?
The place itself is lovely and welcoming. Plenty of tables for groups big and small. The tvs show cartoons, which I find highly entertaining and distracting. If Scooby Doo is on the screens, I ain't talking to no one.
Convenient location, right on the corner of Court and Atlantic. Given what a fat ass Iam when I eat here, I often do the 15mn walk to Atlantic Terminal. But if that's not your thing, it's a short jaunt to the various nearby subway stations.
*Disclaimer: I have not tried ordering this. Just go simple with your burgers.
I'm a fan of Lobster Joint, both in their LES and Greenpoint location. This particular (and original) location however is much nicer because of the large garden in the back! There's nothing like biting into a lobster slider on a picnic bench with friends in the summer!
The staff are friendly, food comes out fast and stuff is delicious! They are all about great deals, whether it's for brunch, lunch or happy hour (4pm-7pm, Mon-Fri). I've been here for all those and have never been disappointed.
If you come for brunch, go with the Lobster Benedict! That plus a cocktail will start your weekend on a delicious note. For lunch, they have several great combo deals so you can't go wrong. For happy hour, order all of their sliders. Seriously. I usually have fries for a side but decided to try their onion rings and was happily surprised. The batter to onion ratio was perfect!
If you're a sports fan, they do show games at the bar so you can get your sports and seafood fix. I appreciate that they don't have a tv in the backyard so you can enjoy it without people (like me) swearing and shouting during one of the soccer matches.
It's been a while since I've eaten in the Financial District but after small bites and libations on the Yelp's 10th Burstday boat cruise, Phil H needed food asap and the Yelp app wasn't showing us anything promising. Problem is, at 10pm, Wall Street is a quiet ghost town. We knew something on Stone St would take care of us and we quickly decided on Route 66 upon seeing the word BBQ!
The waiter who took care of us was awesome and checked on us constantly. Although, I must note it wasn't that busy (only a few other tables besides us) so if the service had been slow, that would've been messed up. But he was awesome. Don't remember his name but I do remember his accent.
The menu is full of classics, which I appreciate. Sometimes fancy shit isn't good shit. To start, we had the Toasted Corn Crush and yes, it was very addictive. Needing all the meat we could get our hands on, we shared the Have It All. It's all their items from the pit plus a side. The two different ribs, smoked chicken and brisket were exactly what we needed to fill the gap in our stomachs. Tender, moist, full of flavor and messy. The sweet potato fries were good but nothing memorable.
Being a bbq spot, the place has that typical rustic, wooden decor and drinks are served in mason jars. The space is nice and big so it's an ideal place to hang out with your finance bros and hoes.
Is it the best bbq spot in NYC? Personally, no but it is a great option when you find yourself in Wall Street and longing for finger-licking good food.
If you love all things local and pickled, Brooklyn Brine Co has you covered! I have been a fan of their pickled goods for a while but I had no clue they had a storefront until recently, all thanks to Peter D!
The storefront itself is tiny but packed with the stuff you see in most of the stores that sells their stuff but also pickled things that you can't find elsewhere. They have a fridge of the stuff they're trying out to see if it's a success. Did you know they make their own preserved lemons? Yup. Now you know where to get it when it's time to make a Chicken Tagine!
Shop local, eat pickles and...that's all I got.
Despite the desolate location, it's a great bar and one that I would call a destination bar (in a good way). If you need one bar for your group of friends to chill for the night, Dirck the Norseman is the way to go.
This just ain't any bar. If you head to the back, you can see their in house brewery through a visible glass! It's like farm to table but in this case, it's more vat to tap? I know I'm get the brewery terms wrong but you get my point. Whether you want to sit at the tables in the back, around the bar (shaped like a triangle!) or tables by the large windows in the front, you will be comfortable all night long. The space is large, inviting and marvelous to look at.
Being a brewery-bar-gastropub spot, you hope the food and drinks are good. Oh and how they deliver on those! The beers (or cider in my case) are offered in different sized glasses from a regular pint, to a 0.5L stein to a full litre. All in reasonable prices! I can't speak much for the food, as all we had was the fries (huge portion, comes with 2 dipping sauces!) and they let me surprise the bday girl with their chocolate espresso mouse. But I spotted a pit roast so I will be back to try their meats!
Dirck isn't the easiest place to get to, given that it's not that close to any subways, but it's worth the walk over.
What a fantastic way to celebrate 10 years of Yelp! I wouldn't have the bestest friends if it wasn't for Yelp NYC so I was all in for this event!
The boat itself is awesome, especially the top deck, which gave us the best views of the best city. The breeze kept us cool and the music from the great dj kept our feet moving. The food was awesome, I have been a fan of Rosamunde for a while since Ron C had a UYE there a long time ago, so I was happy to get a bite of their brats again. I appreciated that they even had a vegan one, even though I am not one myself! As a tequila drinker, I was happy as pie to see a Paloma on the menu and I stuck to it all night.
Much love and gratitude to the Yelp crew, food peoples and the staff of The Zephyr for hosting a fantastic night out on the water!
