I follow mostly restuarant and food related accounts on IG. I came a across a picture of fish and chips and a cool looking drink. I put this place on my list and found a good time to go. When we got there we did not have a reservation and the hostess showed us two menus, like a main dinner seating and a more casual communal table. I liked the casual menu a little better, so we went with that. The drink I ordered was vodka based, it had lemon and elderflower and a splash of prosecco it was so refreshing. The fish and chips were so good. The fish was crispy, it was served with crushed minted peas. That was a nice addition to the dish. I would back and try something else. It’s in Hudson Yards so the views are amazing.
So I have previous dinner post about this place. The food is still good, service still shaky. For some reason they served a large party ahead of our party of two. He did tell us about the wait, but a drink refill or an appetizer would’ve been a nice gesture. We ordered a pitcher of white sangria, cheddar and mozzarella omelet and a turkey burger. They do have unlimited mimosas and bellinis as an option. The pitcher was a better choice for us. The food was good, the burger was seasoned well. I would go back and jave something sweet, like pancakes or waffles. Maybe third times a charm with the service.
I am truly a Bk girl at heart, on a rare occasion I find myself in the Bronx. The menu was interesting, took me longer to decide on sweet or savory. We decided on mac and cheese as a share, so getting the chicken and waffle was an easier choice. The chicken was nicely fried and seasoned. The waffle had a nice crisp and flavor. Mac and cheese was made with shells amd was actually good. I would like to go back for happy hour and wings, my favorite.
I’ve been here twice, once for an early dinner and the other for a late lunch. Their claim to fame is the hero bread which they get from Philly daily. I don’t eat red meat, so chicken steaks with provolone, peppers and onions for me. The bread was good it was soft. I had the Italian cheese fries, they were amazing. They came out first and pipping hot. The next time I tried the cheese fries, not my favorite. They have so many different fries, I will keep trying til I’ve had all of them so far the Italian ones are my favorite. I like hard cider, they have one on tap perfcet compliment to my meal. They just opened one in Brooklyn, so my next trip will be to that one.
I’m in search of great restaurant fried chicken. This was on a random list I found. Apparently they have unlimited sides if you eat in, I had no time and the seating is very limited. I ordered a fried chicken dinner, it came with two sides. I’m always nervous about mac and cheese, so I went with collard greens and yams. They give you any two pieces you want, that was a nice surprise. The chicken was crispy, hot and moist. It was seasoned like my Aunt Sally’s. The collards were okay, better with hot sauce, yams were on point. Next time I’ll try the mac and cheese. They had some smothered turkey wings they looked really good. Definitely worth the trip uptown.
My birthday was on a Sunday this year. Brunch is the best way to celebrate. They had a $20 pre fixe, a main dish and a beverage. I ordered Nutella stuffed french toast and a white peach bellini. It was french bread, it was okay. I was much more impressed with the chicken apple sausage and bellini. They had some other interesting items that were unavailable. I would go back to try something else.
So I love birthdays, anyone’s. They are your special day. One of my classmates turned homegirl celebrated her birthday here. She had been before, knew and loved the menu and atmosphere. She was right. We sat at a pub style table, on one side of the room, perfect for our party size. We ordered drinks, they had definitely had a good variety. I ordered a rum punch, it was tasty. I ordered from the pre fixe menu. I probably could have skipped it and ordered an entrée. We had so many appetizers, I was basically full by the time my main dish came. Potato skins, mozzarella sticks, nachos grande, hush puppies (amazing) and chicken tenders. My meal came with a caesar salad. My main came without my request, I sent it back. It was delicious, it was carbonara. I had the brownie for dessert, it was huge. Served with vanilla ice cream. I will definitely go back.

We have many options in New York for fried chicken sandwiches. I’m in search of at least three really great ones. What I like about Fuku, the sandwich, fingers and fries is all they do. They make a few sides that change, but the fried items remain the same. I was a little hesitant because I’m used to the breast, when fried and seasoned well, amazing. This fried thigh was seasoned well and fried well. Watching them make it, is a nice touch, it was served piping hot. It was juicy, crispy the spread and pickles were the perfect addition. We added a touch of hot sauce, the bun was soft and so tasty, you wanted more. I was honestly surprised that I didn’t want something cool, like lettuce. They offer a slaw, pickled radish I wanted to try the classic sandwich as they sell it. It needed nothing else. We ordered a combo, it came with fries and a can soda. We also had the fingers and smoky slaw. The fries were lightly dusted with a light seasoning that had a slight kick of heat to it. Everything was great, definitely going back.
