4 of us when for Brunch this past Saturday and mind you I am not a buffet fan but their food was delicious!! We stayed for 4 hours eating and drinking. All you can eat and drink from 11am-3pm for $18.95. The unlimited drinks they offered were mimosas and jack-punch. Breakfast foods: omelet station, hot cakes, french toast, bacon, sausage and eggs benedict, crossiants, cheese platters, fresh fruits, and salad. What I had: Beef and Chicken, Roasted potatoes, Mangu with red onions White rice & black beans, and fried maduros (sweet plaintains). I've never been to a better buffet or a better brunch. The mangu was like butter! Perefectly made, and smooth, maduros didnt taste frozen, and the beef was amazing! We were in NYC for 5 days and ate everywhere and this place was literally the most memorible part of the trip. Dont get me wrong we had an amazing time but the food and location really stood out. Great venue too, very "spanish" beautiful decor, and turns into a club/lounge/hookah bar at night. Loved it! Great plae to throw an event also. We payed our bill and sat around talking for another hour and a half as the food settled and no one bothered us. Great experience here.

I recently went here for lunch and sat outside and had a great meal. I wasn't too hungry but I ended up eating a ton because the food was delicious. It's not the healthiest of places so be prepared to leave your diet at home. My friend and I ordered the rigatoni a la vodka and the red pesto pizza with spinach (napoli pizza). My favorite pasta is rigatoni and this place cooked it perfectly al dente with pork pancetta. I think anything with pancetta and cream is going to be delicious but the diced onions that were clearly sauteed in butter added more flavor as well. The restaurant also gives you plenty of olive oil and fresh bread (I think it's mini ciabatta?). The pizza was delicious as well. There was a great deal of sauteed spinach and mozzarella, which I'm not a huge fan of but there was the perfect amount. I'm not a huge pizza crust person but this one was slightly crunchy on the outside and warm and soft on the inside. The red pesto was also amazing. (I'm a huge pesto fan though so that may have biased me!) I brought a few slices as leftovers home and reheated in the microwave a few hours later, my boyfriend said it was too greasy for him. However, I'm convinced it was just olive oil and the melted cheese (and the fact that he's not a big pizza fan). The hostess was slow and not too sharp, but the servers and bus boys were clearly working very hard and handled the lunch rush very well. Our waitress was very cheerful and attentive but not overly fake or annoying. I feel like people really enjoy the salads here too so I will definitely be back to try them since the pasta and pizza can be a bit too heavy!

Let's face it, if you lived through any part of the 80s, you just can't resist bringing that shit back every once and awhile. Yeah, so maybe not the crimped hair and shoulder pads and zubas pants parts, but most definitely the tron, ninja turtle, pee wee herman, and boy george parts. To indulge your secret desire to run in place in some pink leg warmers to some Tiffany - head to the cat club on a Thursday night. Oh yeah, go before 10PM, and cover is free. Its a pretty divey spot which serves up drinks that are a little steep for a dive on a Thursday, but aren't steep at all for normal club prices. Mad props for the red suited door man bouncer that actually had a personality. DJ was rocking exactly what you'd expect (and would want) to hear on an 80s night. Crowd is a mix of punk, hipsters, douches, asians, and gay men...in general, awesomely diverse. The bad? Its *SO* goddamn hot. Like, if you farted somethin' fierce, I'm sure no one would be able to smell it over the overpowering scent of full on gym-style sweat. Also, they clearly don't care how many people they pack into the place. It gets crowded to the point where you have to quite literally shove people out of the way to move (I'm not talking the "shoulder tap and slide", I mean *shove*). All that being said, its a fun time for an OK price...especially when you have an awesome friend who lives in the area and doles out some kick ass pre-gaming.
