PS450

I feel a bit pedophile-ish having drinks in this joint. After all, it sounds like a New York City public school and not some semi-swanky lounge in this non-neig...

Evergreen Shanghai

This place is deceptively large. From the outside it seems like a dinky Chinese joint, but the doors open to a cavernous interior filled with lunching dorks of ...

Pinocchio III

I cannot tell a lie: I think this biatch is closed. Good, they shouldn't have been sticking their nose into the crap, take-out sushi business anyway. &n...

Subway (Murray Hill 2)

I hope to God this is the last Subway I ever have to review. Just thinking about the slimy turkey, semi-stale bread and limp lettuce is sending me into a bo...

Tandoori Club

As occasionally happens, this place closed before I had a chance to review it. Shame, as it had cheap, take-out Indian food that wasn't half bad. Although t...

Café Metro (Murray Hill)

It's always good to have a standby. You know, the place that is perfect in pinch and has never made you violently ill. Because, more often than not, your st...

Chef’s Express

For some reason the word ''merchant'' always makes me think of a sea shanty or a big floating barge filled with rusty, old junk. That's the fun thing about ...

Sunflower Diner

I guess I never realized how full of youngins this neighborhood is. I suppose it's just a matter of not hanging out in the area much, or maybe it's being ol...

Quiznos (Murray Hill)

Why does toasting make sandwiches so damn good? I mean it's a pretty simple concept, but one that like catapults the normal sub into the stratosphere. Now a...

Subway (Murray Hill)

I swear this is the second-to-last Subway at which I will ever eat. How do I know that? Because there's somewhat of lag between Mr. Hipster's dining experiences...
Cafe Zaiya

Cafe Zaiya

All I can picture when I think of this place are those weird, Japanese pink rice balls. They honestly kinda freak me out. Luckily that's not all that's going on...
