Revolution House Serves ‘Easily One of the Best’ Meze; My Tho’s Crawfish Are Pretty Damn Pleasing

• Brian Freedman writes the “charm” of the “deep-fried frizzle” of “funions,” one of the “bar-food-type dishes” at Old City’s Revolution House is “irresistible.” Though the eggplant parmesan “failed to rise above the level of pretty good,” the babaganoush, with its “simple mash of smoky roasted eggplant brought to vivid life with aggressive hits of lemon juice and garlic,” he assess as “easily one of the best meze below Broad Street right now.” [PW]

• “Wispy glass noodles” “easily upstaged” the “unremarkable broths” in My Tho’s soups. Adam Erace says they are “not nearly as moving” as those served next door at Pho 75. But the “sweet and succulent” Cajun-spiced crawdads left him “damn pleased.” [Citypaper]

• Winberie’s in Wayne may not be “as casual as some places, it’s not uptight either,” Marilyn D’Angelo writes. But as far as being a palce to brunch with kids in tow, it offers “items that any child, young or old, would enjoy.” [Patch]

• Midtown Lunchers check out Wedge + Fig and discover “a particularly intriguing layered cheese called Five Counties” in the “impressive selection of artisanal cheeses,” and delighted by the “generous portion of smoked salmon” on the Svenson sandwich. [Midtown Lunch]
