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: Blue Hill, Tomoe Sushi, Momofuku Noodle Bar, Mundo Café and Restaurant, and the Commodore.
Blue Hill, current rating: 9
“The WARM bread sticks and butter (which I cannot put into words how creamy and room-temperature good it was) were fantastic, and kept coming, much to my parents chagrin because we really did want to save room for the three courses we knew we were going to have in addition to wine and coffee. Seriously — suck it, Olive Garden — these are the best bread sticks in Manhattan.” —gna207
Tomoe Sushi, current rating: 9
“The oysters cooked in tin-foil appetizer is quite honestly one of the most delicious things I have ever put in my mouth, and believe me, as a food addict, a lot has been put in there!” —ladyz
Momofuku Noodle Bar, current rating: 6
“I would have babies with this noodle bar if I could … The pork buns blew my mind, and everything else on the menu similarly blew my mind.” —australianfoodlover
Mundo Café and Restaurant, current rating: 7
“Prices are Manhattan-high and food is Astoria-middling” —JDS
The Commodore, current rating: 3
“When the DJ starts spinning, no one’s too shy to dance. On the down side, the cocktail service is a mess and the sound system is reminiscent of the AM radio on a rusty old beater.” —Little
