Pig Bleecker bills itself as a “barbecue-inspired restaurant” which frankly didn’t instill a lot of confidence in us. But it turns out what this actually is is just a meat restaurant. A meat restaurant serving pretty much every type of American and Italian comfort food you might want to eat. Brisket ravioli, duck lasagne, a whole fried chicken, meatballs - this is a choose-your-own-artery-damaging-adventure, and the ideal place to go when you’re ready to give up all semblance of health for a night. It’s a small space, but manages to have a relatively sexy vibe, especially given the fact that you will probably not feel the sexiest after eating here. Unsurprisingly, they make a very good burger.

Waiting in a line outside of any restaurant seems a bit silly to us, but Tomoe is arguably one of the best sushi restaurants in the city, as you will see by those patiently standing single file out front on most nights. And it certainly isn't the atmosphere that's got people queued up on Thompson Street. The place is a dump.

Clyde Frazier's Wine and Dine
In truth, without a basketball court and Walt Clyde Frazier's involvement, we wouldn’t be talking about the Wine and Dine. The space is massive, the layout is clunky, but the food is pretty good. If you're a hoops fan, it's a must visit.
