La  Brochette - probably some of the best food I've had in the city. Had the sampler and the aged prime special. $79 for the special but it was huge and cooked medium was real juicy. Tapas. Nice atmosphere and good service. Irish coffee and Napoleon for dessert. Expensive but didn't feel like I was ripped off.

I just went yesterday for lunch and I agree, very underrated in my opinion.  Got the spring rolls which were very good and the center cut rib eye which had a nice sauce that comes along with it.  Good service and food was quite delicious.

Lighter lunch recommendations today? Thinking Noi Due but prefer midtown/east side. Doing Reserve Cut for early dinner so nothing too heavy. Thanks

I heard someone say that they're moving out of FiDi. Not sure who the source was though.

Doesn't make too much sense. They're always relatively full, and they're rent isn't even retail, its commercial due to the location.

IMO one of the things that makes it so attractive, is that it is right outside the tunnel. Closest place for all the Brooklyn folks, which is probably their largest base of steady customers.

They're actually empty quite a bit. I was there a lot during the summer for lunch and they were far from full. It's a big spot, and there's a lot of overhead between rent and staff, so they need a lot of business to be profitable. Kosher restaurants in FiDi don't have a great track record. I feel like there have been a bunch that have opened and closed in the past 5-10 years.

No kosher restaurant is killing it during lunch unless your the Diamond Dairy. I've been there about 3 times this summer at night and it was pretty full. Additionally almost all the party rooms were in use when I was there. The tabs from those rooms can easily be a few grand each. And once again don't forget his rent per/sf is much lower than most other kosher locations in NY.

Ya but I think that he only got that insanely good deal on the rent for the first year.

The deal I was referring to was when he took over the venue, he got a great deal because the person before vacated last minute and they offered him a good deal if he took it over ASAP and didn't renovate. Something like that.

Ate at Reserve Cut for the first time.  Generally prefer assortment of apps over a main, so that's what I did.  Some thoughts on the food:
  • Porcini Mushroom -- out of this world, worth the exorbitant $17 price tag
  • Chilean Sea Bass sushi roll -- excellent
  • Lamb Gnocchi -- very disappointing
  • Aromatic Baby Back Ribs -- overcooked, disappointed
  • Toro Aburi - good, not great
  • "Snicker Bar" dessert -- excellent
