Tawla
review by Luke Sykora

First, ask for two orders of flatbread. Soft, warm and yeasty-rich, with a crisp wheat-bran crust on the bottom, the loaves will disappear alongside an order of the rich, tangy fava-based ful medames. Ful is a transnational dish, a spread prepared in various ways from Lebanon to Egypt. ...Read the full review

This small restaurant in Oakland’s upscale Rockridge neighborhood boasts possibly the Bay Area’s most eclectic wine list.

O Gaveto
review by Gabriella Opaz

As a gentle breeze carries mouthwatering aromas of salt and sardines grilling over hot coals, a pescador (fisherman) sits on a wooden box mending and patching green mesh to the sound of the sea. A long line of assadores (grill masters)—often the restaurant owners—stand terrace-side gripping worn ...Read the full review

Among the many food courts that have popped up across the city in the last few years, Urban Space Vanderbilt is our favorite. It’s easy to get to, within sprinting distance of Grand Central Terminal, and it brings together ...Read the full review

Absinthe
review by Daria Frum

Classic dishes like Tsar Nicoulai caviar and steak tartare call for a glass of Champagne, like the Sainte-Anne Brut from Chartogne-Taillet. For brunch, go for the chive-potato cakes topped with shredded duck confit, wild mushrooms, poached ...Read the full review

Stems & Skins

A natural wine oasis comes to Park Circle, in what has been called the Brooklyn of North Charleston.

Glasserie
review by C.G.

A restaurant located in an old glass factory, Glasserie is well worth the trek to the far reaches of Brooklyn’s northernmost neighborhood, Greenpoint.
