Restaurant Review: THEP Thai

Score: 6.6/10

I don’t know what it is about Thai food and New Yorkers, but New Yorkers love Thai food. Personally, I think the vast majority of Thai food in New York City is only slightly higher in quality and taste versus your lousiest Chinese takeout, except that it’s far more expensive. This place was no different. And yet, there is something trendy about it that keeps attracting impressionable, ignorant New Yorkers to it, again and again and again.

Restaurant Review: Candle 79

I came here for vegan brunch because… vegans.

We sat in a comfortable booth.

I had the cranberry apple french toast for fourteen dollars. It was okay.

Overall, vegan food is still pretty depressing. Worth mentioning is that this place is really popular and was packed when we got there, which was around lunch time.

Score: 5/10

Restaurant Review: Tony’s Di Napoli (Upper East Side, NYC)

Tony’s Di Napoli is a chain of Italian restaurants similar in vein to Carmine’s. We mainly came here because it was one of the few restaurants my level 9000 vegan friend can eat at.

The food is served family style (big plates to share). We ordered the primavera and a seafood pasta in a wine sauce. It was okay.

Service was fine.

The room was very large and noisy. We went to the one on the Upper East Side. Not sure if the other location is as loud.

Score: 4.5/10 Not a great experience. In my book, Italian food of this kind ranks similarly to southeast Asian food; simple, straightforward, not complex or thoughtful, mainly good when I get a craving for it. I will avoid coming back here if I can help it.
