A few years ago i had taken a very good friend out to eat in Manhattan. She was with her daughter, who was about 10 or 11 years old at the time. Instead of going to the movies i decided to take them to Jekyll&Hyde's Theme Restaurant. I figured my friend loves to eat and it would entertain her daughter as well. The entrance to this theme restaurant of horror was very cool with actors dressed as ghouls. Once the doors open, we were placed in what appeared to be a small room. And that's when the ceiling slowly dropped with spikes moving down apon us. My friends daughter placed her hands over her face thinking this may be the end. I remember her grabbing my leg and hiding her face. And just as the spikes were nearly on top of us, the doors open to the main part of the restaurant. That was very cool!! My friend and her daughter couldn't believe all the Ghouls and Monsters walking around inside. It was packed but we got seats after half an hour. Once we were seated our menus were brought to us byThe Black Widow. It looked like she had on a wedding gown with tarantulas crawling all over her. While we were waiting for our food we happen to notice this amazing Horror show being performed with flashing lights and sounds like aFrankenstein movie. This place made my friend and daughter date a perfect evening!! After we finished eating we decided to look around. They have several floors and each one is different from the other. My favorite was the room that remind me of a library. With books that covered the walls and having to push on some of those books to find the bathroom. Very cool!!!!! So here's the deal. A date with a mother and daughter, $45.00 for dinner, good food and a horror show!!! I'll go again!!!
The Regency is a very nice hotel. The staff is very friendly and the rooms are comfortable. The only complaints I have are room service, internet connectivity, room size. The room service was expensive which can be expected. But add on top of that a charge per person and % on top of that. You can get internet connectivity for an extra $14.95 a day. In today’s internet enabled world this should be free. They days I did pay for internet connectivity Netflix streaming played with minimal buffering through my laptop. The room was a decent size but for the prize it could be larger. Let’s talk about the positives of the Regency. Once again I must mention the friendly staff. Then there is the location. You are two blocks from Central Park. Two blocks from the subway. Also if you want some good take-out I would suggest www.gourmetpark.com which is a two minute walk from the Regency. The one big reason we chose the Regency was because it was pet friendly. Our dog got better treatment than I did. They had a dog mat, bowls; dog treats, and dog bags (for when we walked him through-out the day). He got the royal treatment. All in all if the Regency is in your budget it’s a wonderful place to stay.
I love Malachys! I have been going there for a while now and have got to say that this place is so comfortable that it has become a regular after-work or pre party spot. The bartenders are awesome. The drinks are cheap. The clientele is friendly. Buy-backs happen. What's not to love? Well... If you are looking for a club or lounge or some other hoity-toity establishment where drinks cost 14 bucks, then don't go. I can't make this clearer: This is an Irish Pub! An old one at that. And that's what makes it feel like you just stopped by your friends place for a drink after work. Bring friends and get your drink on. Here's what you NEED to know. The drinks are great! The food is great (get the burger, chicken fingers, mac-n-cheese, or ribs are favorites)! When there is an event at the park or later on the weekends, the place gets packed. Now for my Favorite part: Dorian!!! She's the bartender on the weekends and is amazing! Besides making one of the best darn Irish Coffees this side of the pond, she is hilarious and should have a column in some major publication. You can never get tired of her welcoming smile and the "How you doing sweetheart?" Go early, Stay a long time! Welcome to Malachy's!!!
First off, I'd like to make a point that this page is about Momofuku Milk Bar, not Noodle Bar, or Ssam Bar. Majority of people here are posting about noodles and pork buns. You are all in the wrong place. Milk Bar is a small place that only sells baked goods and desserts. Before making reviews, pay some attention to the place you're posting about. Frankly, it's pretty embarrassing to read someone post negative reviews on pork buns at a place that doesn't sell pork buns. Review: I've been to Ssam, Noodle, and Milk Bar. Milk Bar is unique in their desserts. Their crack pie is amazing and literally like crack. You won't be able to stop eating one even though you should because it's mainly butter and sugar. Their compost cookies are also really good. Their cereal milk, which is what they're known for, is a unique idea, but at the same time a bit overrated. It's pretty pricey and is just sweetened milk pretty much. Overall, the place is very unique and the desserts are pretty tasty, just a tad bit pricey.

If you're looking for some reliable cooking, and want to feel like you're eating in Mom's kitchen, Sarabeth's doesn't cease to satisfy and comfort. Known for its vast brunch selection - with everything from Buttermilk Pancakes to Eggs Florentine, Benedict, Scambled, to Papa Bear's Oatmeal, you'll probably have a hard time choosing just one item to order. The portions are extremely generous and taste like they're made with love! Expect loong lines for brunch/lunch hour (especially Saturdays and Sundays) where you could wait upwards of 45 minutes. It's also a tourist trap for anyone visiting the Upper West Side so plan your meal time accordingly and make sure your wallet is loaded with bills. Dinner time is much quieter and manageable with home style comfort food and, on Thursday nights, you'll also get to take in some JAZZ. All in all, a reliable winner. The food is scrumptious, the prices are high and the service is attentive.
I just started working in the area of this cozy restaurant...I had never paid much attention to it, as to be honest, its quite small and not much to look at from the outside but once you get in, you won't want to leave. I took my girlfriend here for the first time, a couple of weeks ago, and from the moment we walked in the door, we felt so welcome and taken care of, we would just look at one another every once in a while and smile...the loud and hilarious bartender, the extremely charming owner, the friendly staff and then the food! well, words can't describe. my girlfriend had this mustard chicken, which doesn't sound like much, but wow did she love it and obviously i did too. i had the paella, the spanish rice with seafood and chicken and it was amazing. i would definitely recommend this spot and remind people not to judge a book by its cover.
i was passin buy after one hell of a night at the lower east village me n' a couple a friends we usually get pizza or falafel by @ this area but this time it was different we saw this cosi place called philly's cheese steak so i said lets give it a shot guys we walk in i saw this huge selection of cheese steaks sandwichs n' what really amazed me there was chicken cheese steaks and egg roll cheese steak i was like WTF egg roll cheese steak plus there is fresh wings, chicken fingers so we were like ok lets get 50 peices of wings n' each one of us got a cheese steak sandwich but me i had this amazing egg roll cheese steak n' guys from that night i grapped the menu on my way out n' i became addicted to this S@|T!!!!!
Yes, you are coming here STRICTLY for the burger. Don't expect some fancy schmancy high class place because it is most definetly NOT that......but....BUT....the Bistro Burger is worth coming here at least once...I went yesterday with my girlfriend, and we were given a table very quickly, no lines at all....the tables are all scratched up, and the benches are straight up wood, the burger is served on plastic plates...lol but again it is sooooo good. Not the best place for a first date...lol You might even meet some characters, as we did yesterday with the drunk hockey fan from D.C. who ordered us a round of lemon drops and was just hilarious to listen to....but back to the burger...lol yes it's that good.
After reading rave reviews I decided to try the restaurant. Their signature dish is the duck. I really, really don't like duck - or at least the way I've had it prepared so far. I decided to try the duck. It was good ! Crispy on the outside and tender inside. My sis had the steak which was fabulous. Cherries Jubilee wasn't prepared how I expected but turned out to taste wonderful. The service was attentive - just the right amount. We did feel a little rushed towards the end of the meal. This seemed silly to us since half the restaurant was empty. Other than that one hiccup it was great. I am going back next week with some out of town visitors. Try it out! :)
