Time Out New York recently announced their Eat Out awards for 2009, and two local restaurants made the cut. Two local restaurants, I shoudl mention, that I haven't been able to get to yet, which is pretty awful blogging on my part.
First up, the Critic's Choice award for 'Best Unlikely Marriage' is No. 7:
Eastern Europeans are no strangers to Asian food (see: Jewish Christmas), but at No. 7 the time-honored link surpasses kosher lo mein. Chef Tyler Kord funnels his family’s dual ancestry (he is Hungarian; his wife is Korean) into a madcap mash-up of flavors. Kimchi pierogi, scallion latkes, stuffed cabbage and corned beef (with Chinese mustard!) are among the sundry fare that earned No. 7 the Eat Out seal of approval. In romance as in restaurants: A happy marriage is a beautiful thing.Next is the Reader's Choice aware for 'Best New 'Hood Joint in Brooklyn', given to The General Greene:
Check out these and the rest of Time Out New York's Eat Out 2009 awards here.
Step into the General Greene during brunch and the scene—a sunlit room packed with young couples, groups of friends, moms with babies—will immediately explain why you voted it Brooklyn’s best new neighborhood joint. It’s a comfortable spot with something for every eater: coffee and eggs in the morning, craft beers and cocktails at night, and a much-praised burger. That’s all a regular really wants.
