"It's like someone created a tiny, unpretentious country club and smacked it down in the middle of Houston. And there's a nice restaurant attached." This is how I found myself attempting to explain Brooklyn Athletic Club to my mother the day after I'd dined at the new restaurant on Richmond for the ... More >>
The top 10 restaurants in Chinatown.
Last week's roundup was heavy on the closings, but not this week. Although there were some high-profile places that shuttered, this week features mostly good news.

In this week's cafe review of Liberty Kitchen, I had a difficult time pegging the restaurant and what it's trying to be. Oyster bar with killer burgers and cocktails? Upscale dinner destination? Casual lunching spot with confusing prices? I ended up drawing my own conclusions -- which you can read i ... More >>

Do you remember the old 11th Street Cafe? I do. My father and I tried to eat there a few times while he was still living in Norhill, just down the street.

The prevailing wisdom on Shiloh Club (1321 Studewood St.): It's a hole-in-the-wall bar where regulars drink Bud Light like water and wouldn't dream of ordering liquor - certainly not the Bubble Gum Vodka special being advertised the other night. Would they? A casual conversation with Cheri Mc ... More >>
