Every week, I document another dish that impressed and satiated me during my food adventures around New York City

Although they have been marketed as a tasting menu of banchan, Atoboy really serving a tasting menu of composed modern Korean dishes. And they’re pretty good – I just take issue with the marketing of the dishes as high-end banchan. Whatever you call it, the fried chicken with garlic and spicy peanut butter sauce is worth paying for.

Price: Part of $36 tasting

I guess this is a traditional thing in parts of the Swiss and French Alps, but it’s not every day in New York that your waiter offers you up a big hunk of bubbling melting cheese to pour on top of your entreé. That’s what happens at this romantic breezy bistro in the East Village.

Price: $18

I wish I could afford to search for the best New York steakhouse but my budget would disappear after on appetizer. But if more Japanese steakhouse like Ikinari opened, I might be able to swing it. This is the place to come for affordable, high-quality steaks. Just don’t expect wait staff or a comfortable place to sit.

Price: $16-$27

As much as I’d like to eat four donuts, the reality is I would hurt myself. We have to know our limitations. At Rider, they were kind enough to let me order just one donut. It was sprinkled with lemon and fennel sugar with a side of creme fraiche. It turned out to be so good I wanted three more.

Price: $12

The newest food court to open in the city (there will probably be a new one by the time you read this) is an extension of Gotham West Market but now in Brooklyn. These are all new vendors and the strangely named Spatchcocked Chicken was so good it got me all spatchcocked (whatever that means!)

Price: $10/$17/$32

A special occasion birthday dinner brought me to the new NYC location of a critically acclaimed Indian restaurant from New Delhi. It was among the inventive $75 prix fixe dinner that I discovered this week’s Dish of the Week, an Indian-New York mash-up.
