Pulino’s, in a quick one-two, punched its way directly towards the top of the list of favorite New York restaurants; with excellent value – lunch special allows for a half-salad and personal-size pizza – cinematic atmosphere and top-notch fare on the northern edge of SoHo.

However, Balaboosta is a step beyond in refinement, taste, construction and delicacy. Our third ‘small-plate’ was a truly world class gazpacho. It featured a cantaloupe base and was embedded with Almond Brittle and Jicama-Mint relish. The mix of the sweetness of the cantaloupe combined with the fresh tomato and hint of spice from the relish make this as flavorful as fresh garden with the lightness of a granita. As we are wont to do, we ordered a second Gazpacho for dessert!

Since 1971 Souen has been the place in NYC for macrobiotic food; with their main restaurants found in Soho and 13th St. off Union Sq. This latest Souen is the third of the chain and, thankfully, it has a completely different menu! It focuses on different styles of Ramen (all organic) and Japanese comfort food.
