Pearl East, 2018

1191 Northern Blvd,
Manhasset, NY 11030

Maybe will return. 3.5.

I’d dined there more than a decade ago. Found them to be expensive for the sake of expensive. Low ceiling in their private room in the back. Taste was really average.


This time my impression improved. The new deco (don’t really now how new or how old) is warm. The kimono by the entrance is a nice touch. The bathroom is crispy. Fresh flowers (extra point). I ordered the volcano beef which tastes to my liking. But the rice is horrible- unevenly cooked. One of my companions ordered the tasting dim sum (?) – an elaborately presentation – do they reuse them, I wondered. The carving skill is good but … I’m kind of caveman who likes her food less massaged.

The waiting staff said it’s the same owner, which is good. Keep up the good part and improve on the short. Best of the luck.

Parking is easy in their lot.

Low & Butler libraryies

This was built in memory of A.A. Low, by his son Seth Low at Columbia University, when Seth was the president. A few decades later, the university had Butler built as their main library, across courtyard.

218 35th St
New York

3.5 I think … probably will return.

Pleasant. Airy. Light. On the 5th floor of a hotel.

Cute water glass. Decent food – but the Chechen wings are quite huge – like whole chicken – ok this is a little exaggerated bec I’ve seen bigger wings. The K-town wings are on the sweet side, very dry.

Latte is good.

Good service. Good place for watching sports.

Hell Kitchen Flea Market

This one is much smaller than the Chelsea’s. Cigar boxes … Murano glasses (are they real??) …a Believe pendant – same as on the Macy’s
