Epistrophy, a restaurant where the owner plays Jazz for you

Dining Epistrophy Restaurant Avocado Toast

SoHo is a neighborhood with some of the most amazing businesses and stories! We found Epistrophy, a charming restaurant, where the owner plays Jazz music to his clients! How awesome is that!?

Luca and Georgia came to NY many years ago for a quick 3 months experience. They worked in a few bars and coffee shops before moving back to Sardinia. On the side, Luca also played Jazz music for some extra cash – he plays the trumpet!

After a while, they couldn’t get New York City out of their heads, decided to come back and in 2005 opened Epistrophy – a restaurant with Sardinian-inspired recipes.

A huge portion of the restaurant was actually built by Luca and his former boss and friend, Leo. Luca explained that:

“Every year we revamp the place without losing it’s soul. This way, our customers won’t be upset and we maintain our essence.”

The dishes we tried were:

  • Quinoa Salad with kale, beet, squash, chickpea, avocado and radish
  • Avocado Toast
  • Vegan pasta with vegetables
  • For dessert, a banana muffin with fruits

We can’t forget about the beautiful rustic décor! Just like we enjoy it, with beautiful metal and wooden tables, a gorgeous full bar, and a cute waiting area that reminds us of a home.

For the lovers of the traditional 20’s-30’s Jazz, every Sunday night they offer live music!

And the coolest things is: every 1st Sunday, Luca himself plays too! I mean: How cool is it to have the owner himself play music to his guests!? We love it! By the way, he has a few records already if you want to check these out!

We’re sure you’ll love this place and we can’t wait to go back!

And the good news? We do!!! HA! So you came to the right place for the most unique NYC spots!

As you walk down Hudson Street in the West Village, you might see a common restaurant façade that doesn’t say much. When you walk in, and head to the back of the restaurant, you’ll find with beautiful courtyard, nestled in the middle of Manhattan.

We all know how crazy about outdoor areas New Yorkers are, and even though, we’d love to keep this spot a secret, it’s our job to share it! Lucky you!

The food can be characterized as American Nouveau with Chef Wes Long and Chef Peter Phillips at the helms.

Therefore, do try the seared duck breast; the ricotta gnocchi with hen-of-the-woods mushrooms, herb romesco, charred leek vinaigrette, piave cheese; their lunch time sandwiches are a great option; and during the weekends, for brunch, we love the poached eggs & roasted tomatoes with crème fraîche and grilled country bread; and the hudson scrambled eggs with cheese, tomato, avocado, chives, mushrooms and grilled country bread.

Aren’t you already salivating, just reading about the dishes above? Well, we are, just by writing!

In the warmer months, tables are set up in the courtyard for al fresco dining and cocktailing, as we mentioned above.

Oh! You can make a reservation for the even-more-hidden private dining room downstairs. A perfect option for a private event.

Do you need help in organizing your private party? Take a look at our Concierge Services.

Wait! Are you a company, and need help in putting together a dinner for your team? Read about our Corporate Services!

We are sure you will enjoy exploring the hidden world of Hudson Clearwater!

Kuma Inn, founded in 2003, is located at Manhattan’s Lower East Side. But, you’ll probably not even notice it while strolling by. Just the type of place we love exploring and finding for you!

Serving Filipino, Thai and Southeast Asian food, King Phojanakong is the chef-owner of this NYC’s favorite speakeasy restaurant.

Hence, with experience in a few very well respected restaurants such as Daniel and The Grocery, Chef Phojanakong offers several signature dishes on the menu. From a yellowfin tuna tartare to tita ems’ adobo chicken wings, coconut vinegar, garlic and soy, you’ll be delighted with his creations.

That is to say, that the original menu is filled with a variety of meats, seafood and vegetables, but it changes often depending on the season.

In addition, it’s definitely a unique place to take a first date and impress! Specially because New Yorkers don’t know about this place either, so you’ll be certain to hit a jack pot!

Moreover, the prices are very reasonable, so don’t worry about it and just go to enjoy! Who would imagine that through a tiny doorway, on the Lower East Side, you’d find a gem like this?

And to finish, an interesting fact: “Kumain”, in filipino, means “to eat”…and why not, right?!

The neighborhood of the Lower East Side is growing exponentially, and we’re positive you’ll have a fantastic time figuring out some of the most unique spots.

You can book your accommodation at the Ludlow Hotel; enjoy your meals at restaurants like Contra, Souvlaki GR; shop at Vaute or Reformation; grab your morning coffee-to-go at Café Vitta and have fun at Mr. Purple, the trendy rooftop bar at the Indigo Hotel.

3 Secret Japanese Restaurants That You Can’t Tell Others

Dining Bohemian Restaurant Dish

We contributed during 1 year for Glamour Brazil. This post was about 3 secret Japanese restaurants in town that we love!

Here is the Portuguese version and below, the English version:

The gastronomic scene in NYC is simply the best! New restaurants are always opening, renowned chefs are always daring and experimenting in their menus and novelties are always popping up in existing restaurants.

The coolest places in New York are certainly the most hidden ones. For anyone who is in love with Japanese cuisine, here are tips three secret Japanese restaurants, kept away from the eyes of the city’s tourists!

The Japanese restaurant, Zenkichi, is located in the neighborhood of Williamsburg – which we love!. It opened its doors nearly one decade ago and continues part of the short list of the most secret restaurants in town. The entrance is discrete, with a wooden door and a small number “77″.

With a typical oriental décor and low lighting, the tables are divided into small cabins where your privacy is preserved. Each table has a charming bamboo curtain blocking the view of people passing by the table. Each table also has a button to call the waiter, who promptly arrives to help you.

The restaurant offers an a la carte menu and a special chef’s tasting menu with 8 dishes, the “eight-cours Omakase”. This tasting menu is the apex of the place and changes every five weeks!

Location: 77 North 6th Street, Williamsburg, Brooklyn

For connoisseurs of sake and lovers of traditional Japanese cuisine, Sakagura is “the place to go”. It was elected one of the top restaurants in New York.

Founded in 1996, it is considered one of the best authentic Japanese cuisine with top rated dishes elected by best gastronomic critics. It is also among the top sake bars in the United States and in the world, with more than 200 labels for tasting!

Furthermore, on the menu, the dishes have suggestions on the side to indicate the best sake combination. The restaurant is located inside the basement of an office building, so do not be surprised if you bump into suited men while walking in.

Location: 211 East 43rd Street, Midtown

Last, but not least, you’ll surely love telling your friends about the whole experience at this next place. Certainly amusing!


Bohemian

Located in the back of a Japanese butcher shop, in NoHo, Bohemian is perhaps one of the most coveted hidden restaurants in the city. It’s a hard place to find and you’ll surely think you in the wrong place. Plus, the long, dark corridor does make you think twice while walking in.

How it works? Well, first the phone number for reservations is not disclosed. The way to get a reservation is to try to find someone who has already been to the restaurant so they can give you the phone. This is the only way you’ll be able to call and schedule your reservation. Cool, right? (Pstttt…we have it!!!)

Everything there is a-m-a-z-i-n-g… from simple food (with inspiration in the American and French cuisines) to the minimalistic décor and background music – playing Japanese grooves, and even jazz and bossa nova! The tasting menu is a great price and nothing out of the ordinary…it goes for $55, with 6 dishes.

Contact us for their information!

Have fun exploring!

Dziupla, Our Special Polish Restaurant In Williamsburg

If you read the full story about our Founder’s journey to NYC, you will remember about the huge role and historic moment she had at this traditional Polish restaurant in Williamsburg, called Dziupla.

Making a long story short and putting into perspective for those who haven’t yet read our Founder, Fê’s story, this restaurant has a fundamental significance in her life. It was the place she was having lunch on April 20th, 2014 and actually had the 1st strong insight saying to her sister that she’d be living in NYC in 1 year.

(The last two pictures in the gallery above were taken on this exact day in 2014!)

So…exactly 365 days later, on April 20th, 2015 she arrived in NYC! It wasn’t till 2016, through Facebook memories that she say the entire date “coincidences”.

This Polish restaurant in Williamsburg, called Dziupla (pronounced jou-pla), opened mid March of 2014. It was just a few weeks before our Fê discovered it and decided to sit down for a lunch that would change the course of her life…

That day, Fê ordered Duck Crepe with caramelized apples, smoked polish cheese, cranberry chipotle relish, made out of gluten-free flour and a side salad. OBS: She had still not gone Vegetarian!

Her sister had the the Grass Fed Beef Burger with tomatoes, grilled onion, lettuce, spicy mayo, fries and salsa, served with hand cut french fries and greens.

For dessert they did not spare calories! Hahaha! They ordered the classic Polish Pychotka with chocolate ice cream! Yum!

A few of the dishes you should also try are:

  • Potato pancake with goulash stuffed with grass feed beef goulash and sauerkraut
  • Stuffed cabbage lunch with tomato sauce, mashed potatoes and beets salad
  • Hunter stew and mashed potatoes
  • Any of the Pierogies – a super typical Polish dish

Yup, as we said, they really are a traditional Polish restaurant in Williamsburg!

The interesting part their menu is that the hanger steak is grass fed, the boar is wild and the chicken is “Amish farm raised.”

They have a great outdoor seating area right on the famous Bedford Street, so try and sit outside and experience a bit of “people-watching”. Certainly interesting in this neighborhood!

Now that the Summer is officially here, it’s definitely a cool place to go!

They serve breakfast, brunch, lunch and dinner, so you’ll surely find the right occasion to go there!

We’ve organized extraordinary tours and experiences around the Willyb, so if you want to experience the hood in style, be sure to take a look at our Concierge Services.

The restaurant is considered by locals, one of the top Mexican restaurants in NYC and presentes a clear fusion with Asian cuisine. This surely gives the dishes an interesting finish.

To start, the place is gorgeous and gets pretty full! You’ll see in the center of the restaurant, larger tables for big parties, but they also work as communal tables. The full bar is at the back and they know how to create some of the most outstanding cocktails.

In the menu, you’ll find delicious “mash-ups” and exotic dishes like: duck empanadas, shredded duck, scallions, foie gras, cognac ($8), pork chop marinated in coconut milk and served with a thai spice chimichurri sauce ($24), mezcal marinated shrimp, red cabbage and crisp purple potatoes ($11) and other amazing creations!

We also love the mushroom tacos with goat cheese and jalapeño tortilla, the avocado toast, the chicken skewers, the ezquites and one of our favorites: the elote asado that is a delicious grilled corn on a stick!

Ah! And the churros desserts?! They are to die for! Try the five spice, yuzu, dulce de leche. This is not the place to spare the calories, ok!?

This is exactly the type of spot we love exploring when we’re on our hunt for new spots in New York! Just the thrill of finding a hidden place, that not many people know about, is exciting.

The fact that there are no crowds of tourists, is even better! You agree?

To start off, the entrance is quite “camouflaged” if you’re not paying attention as you walk by.

At the back of the Danish craft beer bar named Tørst, you enter a small Nordic eatery in Greenpoint – Luksus. It’s actually right on Manhattan Avenue that is the dividing line between Williamsburg and Greenpoint.

Chef Daniel Burn – ex-Momofuku, ex-Noma and ex-Fat Duck – is the talent behind the artistic dishes you will order. His prior experience? Pretty awesome resumé, right?

Also, if you enjoy tasting menus, they offer a unique seasonal tasting menu that go for $125/person and you can add drink pairing for an additional $55.

Wondering about Tørst? This beer bar is a great option to experiment different beer styles. Even if you’re not very fond of beer, we’re sure you’ll find one that suits your palate.

Oh! They offer some small bites, sandwiches and other dishes to share!

In conclusion, it’s certainly a haute Brooklyn dining experience in the 26 seat restaurant.

Plus, since you’re already around the neighborhood, be sure to explore more of Greenpoint and Williamsburg. You can take a look at our Self-Guided Tour of Greenpoint too!

Hours for Luksus Tasting Menu:
Tuesday & Wednesday: 7.30pm
Thursday – Sunday: 6.30pm & 9pm

Hours for Tørst:
Sunday – Thursday: 12pm – 12am
Friday & Saturday: 12pm – 2am

Their cuisine is American traditional / Steakhouse, so it’s a perfect place for the meat eaters! If you’re vegetarian or vegan, so is our Founder, Fê. She ordered a pasta when she visited the place, so you’ll be able to accompany your friends.

With a rock’n’roll soundtrack in the back, you can order a few of the top dishes by Chef Yvon de Tassigny like their grilled sardines, iceberg salad, grilled eggplants, grilled steaks, pork chop, lamb saddle, mackerel, scallops, grilled potatoes, long beans and shishito peppers.

As we said above, they have a great menu for the meat eaters. If you’re Vegetarian or Vegan, options are limited, so be prepared.

They have a gorgeous full bar, with a fantastic decoration! We love the heavy wooden counter and their super cool beer taps!

Furthermore, this is a great place to come with a big group of friends, since they are able to simply join a few tables that will accommodate you all! They noise can get a little loud, but that is just the vibe of the place.

Be sure to add this neighborhood place, St Anselm, to your list!

If you need help finding your way around Williamsburg, contact us to see all of our Concierge Services from tours and cool local guides to a BTSNYC expert advising you with a customized travel planning service.

Brooklyn can be overwhelming, specially if you’ve never been in the largest Borough in New York. But, it’s surely one of our favorite parts of NYC to explore.

Concord Hill: Seasonal American Food And A Great Wine List

Dining Concord Hill Restaurant Façade

Quite a while ago we went explore Concord Hill with seasonal american food, located in East Williamsburg. We were amazed with what Kate – one of the owners – did with the place.

They opened in November 2014 and serve delicious seasonal American food!

To start, the place is extremely charming! When Kate told me that the restaurant was actually built by family and friends, I was stunned!

We mean, when you’re with a tight budget, there is nothing more gratifying and precious than having your family and friends get hand-on and help out, right?

Also, the décor has metal chairs, beautiful reclaimed wooden tables and the details are scattered mostly in white and blue color.

Kate talked to us and gave us a full explanation of how it all came to life:

My dad and my friends helped build the restaurant. We built the tables, the bar, redid the storefront, we made the wooden boards for our toast plates and our dutch door, all from reclaimed wood from our third partners house upstate.

In conclusion, it was an amazing experience for us to make everything and it was most certainly a labor of love. We set out to serve the kind of food that we want to eat when we go out: super fresh with high quality ingredients and an approachable wine list.

Essentially we wanted to please people in a creative manner through food.”

Well, we have to agree that they’ve achieved their goal! Everything we ate made us extremely pleased!

Plus, the avocado toast is instantly addictive . OMG, so good! You’ll definitely love the place!

Lastly, if you want a place to go for drinks later in the day, a few blocks from there is Beco – a place where the cool Brooklyn kids hang!

Hours: Every day from 11am – 11pm; serve $1 oysters & drink specials every day 4pm – 6pm!!!
