Is this restaurant terrible?
Philadelphia Chowhound coming to NYC and a friend made dinner reservations. What am I getting in to?
Also, I could use a reccomendation for a great lunch in SoHo on Saturday. Nothing expensive but I would like to sit and relax to break up a day of shopping.
While I have not personally been, friends who have gone there say that the ambiance is better than the food. As is usually the case, when a restaurant starts doing pan-anything and mixing and matching food ethnicities, they usually don't do nearly as good a job as those restaurants focusing on one cuisine. I think Earth suffers the same problem. The website makes the place look quite nice however: http://www.earth-nyc.com , so I'd imagine you'll enjoy yourself even if the food isn't transcendent.
