Yakimix is a pioneer in the eat-all-you-can restaurant category. They serve various Japanese, Chinese and Korean dishes ready for eating or for grilling at affordable buffet rates.

Cru Steakhouse

‘Cru’ is French for “growth place” or the terroir of the wine (vineyard); the restaurant is named after it because it specializes in cru wine and Australian/US steak pairing. It’s for romantic dinner dates or special celebratory occasions. It’s not for little kids who won’t appreciate quality steaks. We recommend the Australian Grain-fed Angus Rib Eye and the 21-day aged Super Prime Beef. Our insider tip is there’s a Sunday crossover lunch buffet with Marriott Cafe.

Churreria La Lola is a dessert shop featuring a popular Spanish dough pastry, the deep fried churros. They offer classic churros served with their signature Belgian chocolate dip and a variety of xuxos or stuffed churros, as well as sandwiches and horchata. This branch is unique because it serves churros from a mobile combi. It’s for anyone craving for a filling dessert or snack. It’s not for people looking for lunch or dinner options. We recommend the Classic Churros with Hot Belgian Chocolate Cup or the Mixed Churros to get 2 flavors in one holder. Our insider tip is the churros are individually big and filling so buy to share. P.S. Bucket-sized churros boxes are now available, which includes 36 pieces of churros!

Founded in 1999, Burgoo is a casual dining restaurant that specializes in American cuisine serving comfort food favorites like ribs, wings, pastas and shakes. Fun fact: The name ‘Burgoo’ refers to a spicy stew dish from Kentucky that is often served with cornbread or corn muffins. It’s for big groups, serving sizes are for sharing. It’s not for people watching their calorie intake. We recommend their shrimp and ribs platter, Pasta Diane, Seafood Jambalaya and famous Mississippi Mudpie. Our insider tip: Despite being an American bar, Burgoo is actually kid friendly. Crayons are provided to keep everyone busy and creative while waiting for their orders. Read our full feature here.

Wolfgang’s Steakhouse by Wolfgang Zwiener is one of the top steakhouses in New York brought in by the SumoSam group. Aside from its already popular signature 100% dry-aged prime steaks, expect its menu to include seafood cocktails, soups, salads, and a selection of desserts—including New York cheesecake specially flown in. It’s for heavy steak eaters and some good wine. It’s not for casual beer nights. Here’s a fun fact: Wolfgang, not the celebrity chef Wolfgang Puck, was previously a head waiter at Brooklyn’s Peter Luger.
