Curly's NYC

Ah, what took me so long to get here? We ordered the BBQ Tempeh Ribs, Cuban Sandwich and Chicken parm.

The ribs were good although some would say the sauce was thick and gooey. I like thick and gooey and sweet. The texture was good although I think tempeh is never as stringy and rib like as ribs are. Still good.

The cuban sandwich brought me back to Key West. All that was missing was cuban coffee. And more. In both dishes we thought it would be beneficial to have a bit more protein...not in a supersize way but it looked like 4 pieces of protein in each half sandwich and about as much on the chicken parm dinner as one small cutlet.

Neither one of us left hungry but come for the flavors.

The texture of the cuban sandwich was great, a nice hearty bite but the chicken parm we both thought was a bit on the chewy side.

We had 2 waters and 1 glass of wine between us, one app, one sandwich and one entree and with a tip it came out to just under 42 dollars. A bit steep for lunch but very satisfying. I look forward to trying many other items on the Curly's menu.
