I feel like there hasn't been a ton of new restaurant talk lately so I'll start it.
Surfish (on 5th Ave). Holy crap is that place good. The bf and I have been several times (sometimes with others) and this place is now one of our favorites in the neighborhood. The only downside is that they have a very limited bar--wines and sangria are it, I think. One night we had a bad waiter, but the food was still great.
Spice (on 7th Ave). Eh. I was so hopeful for this place but the one meal we've gotten (tried a couple of different curries) was super bland.
Kiwiana (on Union). I haven't been to the restaurant but I've been to a dinner that he cooked (and some of the recipes on the menu there) and I'm excited to try it. Curious to hear what others think.
I'm interested to see what happens at Johnny Mack's after the changes.
Anybody know if the soup guy (he was in the 7th Ave Uncle Louie G's spot last winter) is close to opening anything around here?
What else has opened recently? What am I missing out on?
