Re: “Here's how to get the most out of your Pounce Cat Café experience

What a bummer way to review an awesome place, welcoming staff and happy kitties! Also, providing a social service!! They even have a Speed Dating night which you didn't include. The included drink is coffee, tea, beer or wine - and being honest, eating is not the point of going to a cat cafe. I'm not sure you were the best "animal lover" to choose to review the place - the point is it's a novelty, its FUN and the girls are doing a great job managing demand with their online reservation system.

Re: “La Hacienda King Street has closed

All La Hacienda's are really bad Mexican food...Horrible trying to improve to bad....They don't know any better...Even the owner hasn't a clue what real Mex is...There isn't a good Mexican restaurant within 1700 miles, so who cares?

Gee, regarding your comments, this doesn't sound promising for the cafe. We have reservations this week and I'm sure it will be delightful.

Re: “Joseph Jacobson's barbecue dreams are coming true with Wild Hare Smokehouse

Suggestion to Wild Hare. Will you be doing your own Corn Beef and Pastrami in house? If you are, please also offer these by the pound as well. That way I can eat a Rueben there and then assemble another couple of sandwiches later at home when the vegans are sleeping. Menu looks great and I will definitely be over to try it out.

Re: “Former Westendorff reopens as Stella's Greek restaurant on Mon. Jan. 23

I'm nervous. The Westendorf was horrible. Probably one of the worst meals I ave ever had. I was wth 3 other people and we all were in agreement. The service was bad too. Some jerky "hipster". I had written a review on Yelp saying this place can't stay in business long. A few months later , they were closed. I also happen to be friendly with a couple who moved here from Mahattan,who own a two very successful restaurants. One on the UES and one on the Lower East Side. He is a chef by trade,so when I try a new restaurant, I run it by him and his wife. When I told them about my awful meal I had, they said I was not nuts. I also have had the pleasure to meet Nathalie Dupree at some functions I have attended. We both attended Cordon Bleu in London, so we chat about food and she too has been in agreement with my views on food. So I think I know a little something about food.

When I read it was going Greek, I said " oh oh". Being from NYC, we know Greek. NYC has great Greek and bad Greek restaurants. But what they have are great GREEK DINERS. They offer great Greek food at great prices, plus anything else you want. We could use a Greek Diner here. It would do gang busters here. I had read when The Westendorf had closed it was going Greek. I had my reservations. I will try it and I hope I will be proven wrong. The real owners are not here. There is a difference. I only wish them success. I'll have a place for good Greek food.

Good luck, Chef Nico... I hope you've researched the hell out of what has cursed that otherwise-prime location for years to overcome it.

Re: “The smoky meats are promising, but some of Swig & Swine's dishes could use improvement

You must have gone on a bad day. While I kind of agree with the judgement of the wings and the ribs, the brisket and smoked turkey were to die for. I could barely move the brisket from the platter to my tray and ended up using my hands because because it was falling apart and unbelievably juicy. And the turkey... I'll start by saying I'm not really a fan of turkey - but this, this was something else. There was so much flavor and it ended up being one of my favorite meats. And the pork belly. The pork belly was amazing. Looking at it I wasn't too sure, but after taking a bite I was hooked. The only thing that was a bit dry to me was the ribs. I can't even comment on dessert because I couldn't save room for it with all the delicious meat in front of my face. The sides were good (we chose baked beans, mac n cheese, and coleslaw), the baked beans were definitely the favorite. I would highly recommend this place as it is some of the best BBQ I've ever had.

Re: “The Edwin S. Taylor Fishing Pier's new Pier 101 restaurant will be a nod to the old Pavilion

Sounds like pretty much the same kinds of things that Locklears served. Hope it's good.
