Restaurant Critic Roundup: Phil Vettel Gives Next Sicily 4 Stars
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.
This week, S. Irene Virbila finds that Gusto in Los Angeles lives up to its name. On the other side of the country, Devra First did not leave Happy’s Bar + Kitchen in Boston too happy.
In New York, Pete Wells felt at home at Almayass, but the one-star review reflected the food and service. (You should check out how Pete Wells is doing at The New York Times here.)
In Chicago, Phil Vettel gives Next Sicily a whopping four stars for its authentic and delicious food. Check out the rest of the article to find out his favorite dishes.
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.
