It is very hard to believe, but this restaurant came highly recommended. The place is nicely decorated, it kind of looks like a high end Chinese bro….. By the look of the place, you would think the food ...

[REVIEW] Orchid, Garden City

Faded Bloom Disappointment is all I can say.  I’m going to post lots of pictures, because I don’t have a lot of words to share.  I have been here once before, and the food was good.  This time, we came as Mee’s, and this Mee was disappointed (and as the numerical reviews will attest so were the other Mee’s.

Fortune Wheel Seafood Resturant Our latest adventure has taken us to Fortune Wheel, located at 3601 Hempstead Turnpike in Levittown.

GOING UPSCALE AT PEARL EAST IN MANHASSET

Putting on the Ritz Once you get past the front door, you know you are not in Kansas (or Copiague) anymore. I imagine this is what a restaurant in Hong Kong might look like. Previously, our adventure has taken us to more moderate instituitions. Pearl East is high end Chinese, and sure does look the part. One thing that strikes me everytime ...
