The table was rickety and too small. We should have left right away, but we were with a friend who was leaving town the next day, and we didn't want to lose time. I ordered a seafood stew in a tomato-coconut broth; my partner ordered...More

Stopped by for a late night drinks and snacks with friends. The waiter was a stereotype of a French server, if you know what I mean (and he appeared to be French). But, it made me feel like I was in Paris. The hostess was...More

Small restaurant on the border of LES and Chinatown. Menu is a mix of mostly North African and Brazilian selections. The Picanha was nicely cooked but under-seasoned. The couscous was fairly good. Wines were ok but nothing really stood out.

Bursting with an amazing array of sights, sounds, and
smells on every block, a visit to Chinatown feels like
entering a different world. It’s a colorful spectacle
that gets even more crowded on weekends, when families
stream in to enjoy huge dim sum feasts and to stock up
at the markets on Mott Street. To take a break from
