As always, the ratings range from stars to bells to beans, but every review offers specialized insight into the food, atmosphere, and service of eateries in each city’s dining scene and the critics eating at them.
At Dirt Candy in New York City's East Village, chef Amanda Cohen wages "war on the 'eat your vegetables'" mentality, "using humor as one of her weapons." "Eating at Dirt Candy can be like going to a child’s birthday party in a country where all the children love vegetables," said critic Pete Wells.
At Lincoln Park Wine Bar in San Anselmo, Calif., the menu is very compact, with no more than nine options on the permanent menu. "The more creative offerings are reserved for the blackboard specials, which changed almost completely over the course of three visits," said critic Michael Bauer.
Denver's Colt & Gray was met with both hot and cold feelings, from one amiable trip and another not so pleasant one.
From the East Coast to the West Coast, from North to South, the weekly restaurant critic roundup is here for all of your dining out needs.
