The Capital Grille

The balsamic rubbed steak was to die for. I have to go back for it again.

Le Colonial

We went there for dinner and the food is mediocre and extremely EXPENSIVE for Vietnamese. I don't care if you are in midtown or downtown. The food does not justify the price at this place. We ordered the beef noodle soup and it was a third of the size what you get from any other Vietnamese places. Then the spring rolls and duck are below expectation. You can actually get a better meal at any other VN rest for a fraction of the cost. I have to say the decor of the place is really nice but still not worth the high price for Vietnamese food. You better off eating steak at Peter Luger for the price you pay here. I felt I got ripped off.

bang-for-the-buck LV steakhouse - Circus Circus Steakhouse?

Circus Circus Steakhouse is extremely over-rated and expensive! You can get better steak for less at Peter Luger's in NYC. But if you are looking for steak in Vegas I suggest going to The Capital Grill.

I loved the pho at kim's. It is perfect. You know the reason why some food are so flavorful is because of the amount of MSG, or sauces with MSG!!! Keep it simple guys.

New Vietnamese Restaurant in Brooklyn Heights

Great food and it is not expensive at all. Much better then Le Colonial Restaurant on 57th St. That place is over-rated and extremely overpriced. Kim's is a nice place where you can get good food and good services. I loved the summer rolls...I mean you can't really mess that up. Also the pork chop rice is pretty good but I prefer to have it over cold rice noodles. I guess anything over cold rice noodle is a good choice if you want to stay away from the oil and msg. Also the curry soup for appetizer is pretty good. Wish they have better drink menu, there are not much exotic choices. But overall it is a fine addition to the area. Will frequent this place.
