We have full faith in the culinary opinions of our stalwart critics, Adam Platt, Rob Patronite, and Robin Raisfeld, but sometimes what we really want to hear is what the average diner has to say. So we turn to nymag.com’s restaurant user reviews for guidance. This week: Barbuto, Pulino’s, Daniel, Del Posto, and Il Buco.
Daniel, current rating: 9
“I ordered for dessert a vacherin which was done in two levels — strawberry & blueberry with amazing thin wafers of sponge and these little honeycomb straws. Then they surprised me by bringing another little chocolate dessert and if I wasn’t done, then came the petit fours — no wonder this is one of the world’s top ten restaurants.” — energybash
Il Buco, current rating: 7
“My husband and I spent part of our dinner arguing whether il Buco is the best winter or summer restaurant. We finally agreed — summer in the wine cellar, winter in the dining room.” — nycl
