Update: Nai Sets the Bar Even Higher

TL;DR:

Went back to Nai Tapas Bar and was even more wowed than last time! If you're ordering food, you NEED to get the coconut crepes stuffed with scallops, shrimp and crabmeat (doesn't that description alone already get your mouth watering?).

Round Food for Every Mood (2/2): Tompkins Square Bagels

TL;DR: ★★★

Had high expectations, but it was mediocre at best. Spreads are delicious, but the bagels are tough and chewy.

Legit Hot Pockets: Empanada Mama

TL;DR: ★★★★

Love their clean, flavorful and overall delicious dishes (empanadas and others) but not the long wait and cluttered, tight space. Worth going, though, for the good value and authentic Latin-American food.
