Mmmm! Spun Sugar...

All bistro-lovers should note: Landmarc offers cotton candy free to children ($3.00 for you kids who are old enough to vote!). They kept up this delicious practice at Taste of Tribeca. That's right, free cotton candy.

Rosanjin- Tribeca

Rosanjin promises "The Gift of Food", a feast of seasonal colors and flavors served in a beautiful setting. Could there be a better way to enjoy authentic Japanese cuisine? Here is what one of our readers had to say about this culinary journey to Kyoto:

"I had the pleasure of dining here last night and I have to say it was one of the best dinners I have ever had. The room is beautiful and the service was impeccable. My friend and I ordered a variety of dishes from the al a carte menu which is brand new and very exciting. This is not your every day sushi place. This is authentic Japanese cuisine served by expert staff in a beautiful atmosphere. Over the course of 3.5 hours we sampled sesame tofu, tuna, sea urchin, an assortment of tempura, abalone, and salads. My favorite was the dourade. The sake was flowing and the desserts were homemade and even though we were completely full, we found room to sample the pumpkin and strawberry ice cream. I cannot say enough about this place except that I am looking forward to my next experience and bringing all of my friends."

In addition, you can find out what one of our readers has to say:

"I have been anxiously awaiting the opening of this restaurant since their amazing debut at Taste of Tribeca. Forge was definately a standout this year with their Jamison Lamb. Well I have just received word that Forge will be open tonight and I am already planning a weekend dinner. The following is from their website:

Forge features Chef Marc Forgione's laid-back yet high-style approach to New American cuisine in a comfortable and energetic atmosphere. Menus change frequently to showcase fresh ingredients and new twists on seasonal American favorites."
