This week, Pete Wells at the New York Times gives Perla, the new Greenwich Village Italian restaurant from Gabe Stulman and Michael Toscano two stars, calling Toscano's menu a "swaggering red-blooded version of Italian food" where the beef tongue is "soft as ice cream at the beach." And in Washington, DC, Tom Sietsema released his annual Spring Dining Guide, slamming O'Learys in Annapolis and the Foggy Bottom Founding Farmers location with just a half star apiece.
Creative Loafing calls Campagnolo mediocre but "definitely fun," recommending the secondi over the pasta dishes.
It's either love-it or hate-it at Frog n Snail, writes David Tamarkin, where the frog legs "should be removed from the menu entirely."
Heidi Knapp Rinella was "pretty delighted" with "innovative touches" at 35 Steaks + Martinis.
