February 25th, 2013 · 5 Comments

Remember the Salvation Army store on the corner of Bedford Avenue and North 7th Street?  Above, and below, is what is left of the building that desperately needed to be gutted…. finally.  Rumor has it that Apple owns this building, and many others throughout NYC.  When I discovered this info I had to ask, “Is an Apple […]

Fushimi Revisited

January 20th, 2012 · No Comments

I promised to re-visit Fushimi so here I am, and I must say; as much as I dislike sparkly bridge and tunnel venues, this is not one that I completely dislike.  Honestly Fushimi is kind of fun, and something different, especially here in Williamsburg.  The decor, which is definitely over-the-top and Miamiesque, is cohesive and […]

All’s well at Allswell

January 9th, 2012 · No Comments

If, based on the unexceptional façade, you commit the error of relegating Allswell to the limbo inhabited by mediocre restaurants with nondescript exteriors, my recommendation is not to be fooled by appearances and step inside the joint before making final judgment.  After all, Allswell is, in my opinion, one of the […]

Fushimi eh?

December 19th, 2011 · 1 Comment

On the corner of North 10th Street and Driggs Avenue, Fushimi – the most recent incarnation in the ceaseless cycle of opening restaurant/lounges in Bloomburg – is being hastily erected.  Never one to rain on somebody else’s parade, I typically exhibit nothing but enthusiasm at the prospect of discovering an unspoiled […]

Meaty Balls are delicious

July 16th, 2011 · No Comments

The Meatball Shop on Bedford Avenue is an instant classic, and I do mean instant.  On opening day there was a 45 minute wait for seating, at 6:30pm.  Just one week later, on a Tuesday of all days, I tried to grab a table at 7:30pm….and what do you know……an hr wait for seating.  Owners […]

Well you can’t expect EVERY new establishment to be the sh#t can you?  One of Williamsburg’s newest bar/restaurants opened it’s doors a few weeks ago right on the corner of Bedford Avenue and North 9th Street.  The bar is called TRIX.  What an odd name.  After nosing around a bit I discovered that the name, […]
