Even on a rainy and chilly day, Tengda had a great crowd for lunch. Why? Lots of delicious food at reasonable prices. The Japanese Bento Boxes are very popular, and the Ribeye Teriyaki option was excellent, with tender and flavorful steak and fresh and perfectly al dente vegetables. All of the boxes include an Asian salad, rice, California rolls and potstickers ($10 - $14). A new favorite is Chicken, Vegetable and Tofu in Coconut Curry Sauce...

The Z Hospitality Group, owners of Terra and Mediterraneo in Greenwich, recently opened their third Greenwich Avenue restaurant, EastEnd.

It’s hard to find a better lunch or a better bargain than the Japanese Bento Boxes at Tengda Asian Bistro. In addition to the main course, all the boxes offer a California Roll, potstickers, rice and salad.

The shrimp are large and tender. The vegetables include broccoli, green beans, sweet...

  It was nice to see a good crowd on a Wednesday night at Firenze. And although almost all the tables were taken, it was still possible to converse, thanks to the new acoustical tiles they have installed. The men started off with the Tagliere to share: an abundant board of Italian hams, salamis, delicious cheeses, olives, grapes, walnuts and honey. This is a wonderful taste experience, but it does leave you pretty full. Determined to have...

Eastend had its soft opening last week. We went there with a few Moms of the Week naturally, Kyle Healy and Bryanne Crabb to bid Bryanne good luck in her move back to Australia. The place was filled to capacity. Suzanne and Ramze Zakka, owners of Z Hospitality Group, were there to welcome friends and family to their new, American-themed restaurant at 409 Greenwich Avenue. The bar is beautiful. Separating it from the dining room, a...

The appetizer menu simply said “Thai Crab Cake,” leading us to expect a few bites. Instead we got two large delicious crab cakes drizzled with a chili crème sauce next to a substantial mesclun salad with papaya and daikon strips as garnish. This dish definitely made for a great lunch. Other appetizer favorites that can make a meal at Tengda: Thai Chicken Lettuce Wraps (diced chicken in mild Thai bean paste sauce wrapped in leaves of...

It contains parmigiano, pecorino, gorgonzola and asiago cheeses, with generous portions of Prosciutto de Parma, salami, both spicy and dolce, bruschetta, walnuts, grapes, olives and honey. A feast in itself,...

Party with Moms loves Tengda. We’ve written about the amazing appetizers, and how we often make a meal of sharing them. We’ve extolled the great sushi, from California and tuna rolls to the special creative rolls.

It is hard to resist filling up on the delicious appetizers at Tengda, but you should definitely save some room for the sushi. Tengda features lots of creative and attractively presented sushi and sashimi. You can pig out on the sushi boat for 2, or dine more modestly on the regular rolls, like tuna, California, yellowtail, spicy crab salad, eel/avocado and many more.  We like to sample the special rolls, products of the sushi chef’s creativity....

Trying to think of an outing for kids on these frigid weekends? Here’s a suggestion: have brunch at the Cos Cobber.

Chocolate chip or blueberry pancakes, and French Toast with strawberries are perennial favorites. Adults may prefer the choice of omelets, delicious Eggs Benedict or the bagel with smoked salmon and...
