Thumbs in the Bowls...

Server and waitress each served plates and bowls with their thumbs hooked into the bowl/plate!! In Japan, as here, this is beyond Very Very Bad Manners. After that the food was tough to savor. Cod was good but paired with Western rice didn't cut it. Better options in the hood. Take a passs.

Italian Tapas & Wine

The server described the food as "Small Plates." Well, indeed all the dishes on the menu were in small portion. They went pretty well with Italian wine I had (though the wine list had some Long Island wines as well.) The food was Italian and the style was Small Plates. I loved the squid ink risotto and the duck with fig sauce. The home made banana ice cream was amazing. The slightly curved bar table is charming, and you can sit face-to-face with your friends there.

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.
