The Robs give three Underground Gourmet stars to Café Nadery on West Eighth Street, and two U.G. stars to El Aripo Café on the Lower East Side. On the former: "There is a chicken-salad sandwich dressed in cucumber yogurt that tastes just vaguely unfamiliar, and a bean, herb, and noodle soup, ash-e reshteh, that tastes utterly so. The contents of the bowl are ribollita-thick and deep green, an Über-vegetal mush of spinach, dill, cilantro, parsley, and green onion mingled with soft strands of pasta, chickpeas, and kidney beans."
