Review Roundup: Fornino, Nuela & the new Meadowlands
This week in reviews, Fornino's pizzas fall flat (literally), critics disagree on Nuela and the new Meadowlands Stadium's cuisine doesn't come close to Citifield's food. Let us know what you think about these recently reviewed restaurants in the comments!
Sifton reviews Fornino Park Slope, "a fine addition to the
borough's now-sprawling call-for-reservations dining scene." He finds
good antipasti, pastas and fish, but says the pizza, grilled rather
than cooked in a wood-fired oven, "mau be the restaurant's weakest
suit." One star.
Magazine checks out a sampling of the sandwiches available at
Salume, where authentic Milanese panini with unexpected condiments are
Cheshes is pleasantly surprised by the food and service at Nuela,
despite the concept. "Its original chef, Douglas Rodriguez, andandoned
the project last year, and the glitzy restaurant highlights a style of
cooking that all but died with the '90s. Against these odds, the big
surpirse is how well the place actually works." Four stars.
- Meanwhile, Steve
Cuozzo is disappointed with Nuela's "Nueva Latina" fare. "Nuela is
shrill on eyes, ears and palate." One star.
Sutton checks out the fare at the new Meadowlands Stadium; finds
the food and drinks are just as overpriced as the tickets.
Greene tries a little bit of everything at Eataly.
