This week's top dish from Eater NY, Curbed's restaurant, bar, and nightlife blog...
1) Lower East Side: Stanton Street greasy spoon El Sombrero is safe from a takeover by the Artichoke team, but the management says business is slow because everyone thought they were closing.
2) Citywide: Good restaurants to watch the snow fall (read: they've got giant windows), plus others that are offering enticing discounts today to get customers to leave the house. Also,
crazy cold-resistant people still stood in line for cronuts.
3) West Village: It's nearly impossible to nab a reservation at Japanese hotspot of the moment Sushi Nakazawa. But they just expanded service, so it's a tiny bit easier now.
4) Past, Present & Future: 2013, as remembered in sandwiches by master critic Robert Sietsema. Plus the city's top sommeliers reflect on a year's worth of vino and the tipple of 2014.
