Rintintin is a bright brunch spot on Spring Street in Soho that’s pleasant enough for your friends to spend time in, but not too nice for your friends to feel weird about getting a little drunk in. It’s usually crowded, but they take reservations (if you’re a planner) and have seats at the bar while you wait for a table (if you’re not). This place feels a little like a bar and has decent Mediterranean food like baba ganoush or a burger that comes on on pita.

Most everything on the menu at Charlie Bird is fantastic. They do service and wine better than almost anyone else.
Ed's Lobster Bar
We’ve put this one off long enough and it’s time to come right out and say it – we don’t love Ed’s Lobster Bar. It’s all reasonable ocean fare, but none of it leaves us anxiously awaiting next time.
David Burke Kitchen
David Burke Kitchen is not the place to have an incredible farm-to-table experience.

Ultimately, we are sure that Boulud Sud is some kind of Mediterranean culinary stroke of genius, just like the critics say that it is. But this is the kind of restaurant best suited for people who still keep an actual Zagat guide in their house.

A good spot for your weekend brunch rotation, but don't rely on it for dinner. Jack's Wife Freda does not get better when the sun goes down.
