Weds & Fri

Wed & Fri are the best after-work parties in NY. Al B. sure knows how to throw a party. Each and every week you are bound to be impressed by Old-School Salsa dancers tearing up the floor. Beautiful people, great drinks and of course the best music. Not to mention the dinner is good too. Been going since day 1 and like so many others i've become addicted. Have been on pleasure and on business and each time has been a success.

Lansky would be proud, but wouldnt speak so easy about this place

PROS-> Cool idea. Good menu. HUGE MARTINIS. Prix-fix menu is a good value for $25. CONS-> Dont go for late night. Waitresses tacks on extra dollars for convenience of them brining you food/drinks and then you tip. They say its tax, so explain to me how 2 order of their awesome frenchfries come out to be $12 when the menu says $5/each...AND THEN YOU TIP? Real turn off they way they seem to pull a fast one. Late-night crowd is lame and cheesy.

No longer scary, no longer pretty, no longer hip

The altekockers of Ratner's were wise to cash in on the LES gentrification, but at this point the LL represents everything wrong with the nightlife scene in the neighborhood. Finding the door used to be fun, weird, and vaguely scary: now with the "L" -- which looks like the one on Laverne's monogrammed sweater: coincidence? -- half the fun is gone. Doormen? Eww! The furniture has been reupholstered with ugly Orchard St. faux-tapestry fabric. The bar is now a cross between the old Alva, a Hyatt piano bar, and a Seaman's Furniture. The actual deco-style bar remains lovely but the crowd, honey, is OVAH! Milk and Honey has taken its place as the worthwhile place to go.

Some Hints:

  • The best reviews give a clear sense of why you liked or disliked a restaurant, bar, or store. And that means details. Mention specifics dishes, type of crowd, pros and cons...
  • If it's helpful to compare one place to another, go for it.
  • Come up with clever, funny, pithy subject lines, and write in the first person.
  • Don't forget to read the user rating guidelines and rules.
