Italian Resto MUTZ Is Making Fast Food Feel More Like Home Cooking

MUTZ is giving foodies hearty, homestyle Italian food as an option in a Throggs Neck shopping center dotted with familiar fast food chains. The short menu at MUTZ Fast. Fresh. Italian, which opened in April at 815 Hutchinson River Parkway, is only made up of simplified, best-selling Italian classics, but there was consideration behind it. “When menus are too large it gets complicated for employees and customers”, co-owner, Jessica Sansotta explained during..

Review: What’s Good on Ceetay’s Menu

Honestly? Everything we tried. We’ve been following Ceetay on Instagram for 2 years and their food photos are almost good enough to eat so we made a date to try the real thing. The sushi, noodle, and Asian fusion restaurant located at 129 Alexander Avenue has been the main—if not sole—source of a taste of the east in the South Bronx for more than 5 years. Co-owner Amir Chayon, an Israeli immigrant.. Read More

I Tried Bronx-Based Zone Manhattan Meal Delivery and Here’s How It Went

We’ve introduced meal delivery services on the site before for their convenience and nutritional value. Zone Manhattan wants to add one more benefit to the list: weight loss (or maintenance depending on your personal goals). The Bronx-based business operates out of Hunts Point in The Bronx. Unlike other food subscriptions that have risen in popularity, Zone Manhattan doesn’t deliver a pre-measured list of ingredients for cooking to your door because it does the work.. Read More

Why Jake’s Steakhouse is Worth a Ride to the Top of the 1 Train Line

Morton’s, STK, Peter Luger, and Jake’s? All praise-worthy steakhouses but you’ll find the last of the four off of the final stop along the 1 train route uptown. Jake’s Steakhouse, located at 6032 Broadway, has been a fixture in Riverdale for 15 years. What it lacks in exposure on media’s annually recreated New York City listicles, it makes up for with a great view of Van Cortlandt Park, cozy atmosphere, and well-done.. Read More

La Grata Pizzeria Opens in Port Morris with Affordable Southern Italian

As the landscape of the South Bronx continues to change, news of openings in the area can be viewed with wide-eyed excitement and narrow-eyed vigilance. In the case of La Grata, the latest venture by Somerset Hospitality Group, both might apply. However, La Grata Pizzeria, located at 136 Alexander Ave in Port Morris, promises to be affordable and accessible to locals, with hires from the community like Monroe College students. When they opened their.. Read More

Landin Mac & Cheese Is Melrose’s Not-So-Guilty Pleasure

6 months ago, Landin Mac & Cheese moved to 701 Melrose Avenue. They used to be next door. But, community demand for the savory side dish-turned-main-menu-item for the restaurant called for more space. It also called for Landin’s re-opening ahead of completed maintenance.   The interior is plain, except for mismatched tables and chairs surrounded by the bright yellow walls. Co-owner Sergio Sanchez Jr., who runs the business with his father, Sanchez Sr., apologized..

Late Night Food Crawl to Cơm tấm Ninh-Kiều Bx Vietnamese Restaurant

There’s that saying “nothing good happens after midnight”. The restaurant version of that would be ‘nothing good comes out the kitchen before closing’. You might get reheated pasta, you might get a truncated menu. Anything can happen. But when we found Com tam Ninh-Kieu on Yelp Saturday night at 7:30pm—an hour before close—we made the bet because of its 4 star rating.   It’s the kind of place you’d only.. Read More

Riverdale’s Farm-to-Table MOSS Cafe Is a ‘January Eaters’ Place

Whether you made an official resolution or not, January is a fresh start to make the extra effort to eat healthy. Fortunately, at Moss Cafe in Riverdale, every month is January on their menu.   The organic, farm-to-table kosher cafe and expresso bar has been open less than a year but it already has a loyal base of customers. Funded from a very successful Kickstarter campaign, Emily Weisberg set out to open.. Read More

La Masa’s Traditional Colombian Food Expands Bronx Latin Cuisine & Bellies

Morris Park is one of those neighborhoods where presumably “nothing happens” and residents like it that way. A little over a year ago, La Masa happened. And although the Colombian restaurant is in obvious contrast to the area populated by Italian eateries, it has settled right in. It’s probably because La Masa, which translates to “the dough”, is family owned and operated by husband and wife duo Josh Montalvo and Laura Valdez, who.. Read More

Lunch at The New York Botanical Gardens Hudson Grill

Lunch is probably the most overlooked meal when it comes to dining out. Brunch has made breakfast a star and dinner is an all out event. Lunch is just what breaks up the drudgery of the work day, assuming you even leave work to eat it since so many don’t. But the new full service, farm-to-table New York Botanical Gardens Hudson Grill will make you look at lunch differently.   It goes without..
