Robert Sietsema at Cascabel Taqueria; Sarah DiGregorio at Seersucker and Peaches HotHouse
This week in the Voice, Robert Sietsema squeezes into Casabel Taqueria, where "the tacos are happily similar to something you might get from a truck parked on Roosevelt Avenue." Sarah DiGregorio sees Brooklyn heating up with two new Southern-accented newcomers: Seersucker and Peaches HotHouse.
Sam Sifton is enchanted by Balaboosta, "a charming and casual Middle Eastern trattoria with Israeli roots. ... The intimate feel to the restaurant is real."
Jay Cheshes finds The Lion more accessible than Waverly Inn or Minetta Tavern: "Like the city's other clubby spots, the food takes a backseat to the scene. Which isn't to say that it's not often delicious."
Tables for Two approves of an expanded Tanoreen: "a place that revels in temptation -- and, even more so, in sating it ... recently moved down this sleepy Bay Ridge block, tripling its seating in the process."
