Kosovan Cuisine - Tony and Tina's Pizzeria

Restaurant Review: Tony and Tina’s Pizzeria

A note about my restaurant reviews: New York City counts many Eastern European restaurants scattered across the five boroughs, most of them ignored by restaurant critics and diners alike. I intend to visit as many as I can and report! “That’s it,” you must think. “He’s lost it. He’s reviewing some grubby pizza joint in the […]

Red Alert! Random Eastern European dishes are invading our streets and restaurants! Should you duck and cover, or welcome the enemy? Quebec is particularly well-suited for Red Alerts. First, the latitude and climate aren’t that different from those of many places in Eastern Europe, which means that at least some of the flora and fauna […]

The Best and Worst Restaurants of 2015

The Best and Worst Restaurants of 2015

Only six full-on restaurant reviews this year, just like in 2014. Sigh… Will I live long enough to review all the Eastern European joints in NYC?

Buffalo - Bosnian Cuisine - Balkan Dining

Red Alert: Balkan Dining in Buffalo

Red Alert! Random Eastern European dishes are invading our streets and restaurants! Should you duck and cover, or welcome the enemy? This post departs from my typical Red Alerts in the sense that Balkan Dining, in Buffalo, NY, is a legit Eastern European restaurant, not a random eatery that serves a somewhat Eastern European dish. However, […]
