Croissants revisited (SOHO)

D&D didn't make their own croissants until about a year ago. They are a totally different animal now.

Low-key pub with great burgers and beer

I ate at BH Burger on W. 43rd, just off Times Square yesterday. The burger was terrific and the beer selection was excellent.

Croissants revisited (SOHO)

Dean and DeLuca now make their own croissants, and they are as good as anything I've encountered in Manhattan.

Why isn't Jungsik receiving more attention?

My husband and I loved our dinner there. It's definitely a special-occasion restaurant, but it was his birthday and thus qualified.

best spaghetti bolognese?

Bolognese means that it comes from Bologna, which is in Emilia-Romagna. That said, Bar Pitti on 6th Avenue and Bleecker is a Sienese restaurant and is dependable and often wonderful if you order the specials. No reservations unless you have a big party.

Chicken Biscuits NYC?

Jacob's Pickles' chicken and biscuits are phenomenal. You can either get them with sausage gravy or mushroom gravy. And unlike chick-fil-a, you won't be supporting anti-gay causes by eating there.

Best Donuts in NYC

Dough is FAR superior to Doughnut Plant. The latter's creme brûlée is very good however, as is their coconut cream.

Best Bread in NYC?

Silver Moon on the UWS. Especially their rustic baguette. And for a treat, their chocolate-orange bread on weekends.
