Neerob reviewed in the Times.

There goes the neighborhood!

2109 Starling Ave, Bronx, NY 10462

  1. Having been to Neerob at least 3 times since the review was published, the neighborhood has not "gone" anywhere. Khokon and I have talked every time I've visited, and he answers in the affirmative when I ask if business is up. But I'm surprised that I haven't seen any outsiders around--though this tends to be the case, at this point, with the Bronx. The focus remains on Brooklyn and Queens, with the less adventurous treading water south.

      It's quite off the beaten track though, isn't it? We went by car, so I have no idea how one would get there by other means of transportation. And parking was a huge pain. It also bears mention that Neerob was named one of the top inexpensive restaurant finds of 2011 by the NY Times.

        its it very off the beaten path. we're not talking 149th and 3rd here. Starling Avenue?

          I wouldn't say WAY off the beaten path--the 6 is a pretty accessible train, that line being one of the city's reliable and used, Very off the beaten path would be Louie and Ernies, or anything in the far East Bronx for the matter. Awesome to hear that it was named one of the top restaurant finds of 2011!!! Can you share a link?

    2. Subway is always an option. Take the number 6 to Castle Hill Avenue. It's a 3-5 minute walk from there.

      1. I wouldn't worry too much. The experience is that NYT reviews for outer boroughs have only trivial impact.
