Reviews of New York City’s most popular (and least popular) bars and restaurants.

Tuscan Square

Tuscan Square

[CLOSED] Sandwiches as long as a baby’s arm–and almost as tasty. But like all baby-arm eaters, you’re gonna pay, and pay dearly. The amazing turkey…

Turtle Bay

Turtle Bay Grill & Lounge

Is a place really a grill if nobody eats there? Is a place really a lounge if there is absolutely no lounging going on? Regardless…

Tupelo

[CLOSED] Sometimes those accidental finds turn out to be the best places around. I certainly had no expectations when I ducked into this little hole…

TSE Yang

TSE Yang

[CLOSED] Tse Yang loosely translated is: pretentious, overpriced midtown bullshit. Again, we say that there is no way to make gourmet Chinese food. Chinese food…

Troy Turkish Grill

Troy Turkish Grill

[CLOSED] Didn’t Troy belong to the Greeks back when it was Troy? Sure those rascally Turks burned and Nazied their way into the poor Greeks’…

Triple Crown Ale House

Triple Crown Ale House

If you need to eat dinner before a Knicks or Rangers game, you basically have your choice of three or four places within walking distance…

Trio French Bakery

Trio French Bakery

[CLOSED] I felt like George in the soup Nazi episode trying to order a sandwich in this joint. There was a line of about six…

Trinity Pub

Trinity Pub

Addendum [hey, things change] It is very seldom that I am overwhelmed by drunkenness. Not my drunkenness, mind you, but the drunkenness of others. There…

Trilogy Bar & Grill

Trilogy Bar & Grill

[CLOSED] With the demise of Dakota, Trilogy takes over as the ultimate UES ughfest. Pushing the stereo to decibels not heard since theater owners first…

TRI Bakery

TRI Bakery

[CLOSED] We’re not quite sure what’s going on here. Apparently this place is a bakery during the daylight hours, serving great bread and stuff, but…

Tovar’s Restaurant

Tovar’s Restaurant

[CLOSED] Hola! Welcome to New York City’s most authentic Mexican joint–so authentic, in fact, that you may want to brush up on your Spanish. While…

Totonno’s Pizzeria Napolitano (UES)

Totonno’s Pizzeria Napolitano (UES)

[CLOSED] If you’re a fan of brickoven pizza, then this is your kind of place. Consistently packed, and constantly recommended, Totonno’s is the king of…

Toto Music Studio

Toto Music Studio

[CLOSED] Who knew one could have so much fun at a place with no liquor license, in a nondescript office building in the middle of…

Tortilla Flats

Tortilla Flats

Imagine, if you will, a drunken, adult version of Chuck E. Cheese’sin which you’re the main attraction. Yes, it’s your turn to make a complete…

Topaz

Topaz

Cheap Thai. You gotta love that combination. Subterranean cheap Thai. Less good, but still okay if you’re desperate for pad see yew. As far as…

Top of the Tower

Top of the Tower

[CLOSED] So, you want to impress a date? A piano bar, great river and city views, tables filled with multi-national chatter and drinks galore —…

Tony’s Di Napoli – Upper East Side

Tony’s Di Napoli – Upper East Side

[CLOSED] Whoever said quality over quantity has never talked to Tony, ’cause he’d knock that schmuck’s nose right off his face. Tony believes in family…

Tom’s Gourmet Cafe

Tom’s Gourmet Cafe

[CLOSED] The term “gourmet” is used way too loosely these days. What the hell makes something “gourmet?” Is it a matter of using expensive ingredients?…

Toasties East at 48

Toasties East at 48

Toasties, by look and feel alone, is what you kind of imagine your ultimate sandwich joint to be. It’s a little bit white and space…

Toad Hall

Toad Hall

It’s like SoHo’s version of a sports bar. There are TVs and munchies on the bar. There are a bunch of people smoking and milling…

Tír na nÓg

Tír na nÓg – Penn Station

We could have all sorts of fun with this name (especially with a word in it that rhymes with hog), but we will refrain in…

Tio Pepe

Tio Pepe

Arrrriba! Sorry, I have to start all my horrendous Spanish/Mexican reviews with some trite Spanish cliché. It’s a problem, and I’ll work on it (look…
