  1. Ate at CB Kitchen and Bar in New City last weekend. What a disaster! Asked for red wine, was brought out white. The waiter never put the order in for the appetizers. The menu was meh, tacos, burgers, salads, bbq. Then they have the chicken and waffles, which I ordered. It was interesting. With so many really good places to eat in New City, this would not be my first choice by a long shot.

  2. I couldn’t have experienced anything more different from the previous commenter. The wait staff was extremely friendly and attentive. The drinks were just what we requested, and the food was to die for good. At first glance, the menu doesn’t seem to offer anything extraordinarily novel, but that impression was wrong. The chef has put a delightful spin on dishes that tend to be taken for granted. The chicken and waffles were delicious, but the apple butter made the plate incredible. Loved the house-made garlic pickles and strawberry cheesecake parfait too. So good! I’m already planning another visit to try to wonderful barbecued ribs that we smelled from the next table over. I’m hoping they’re much better than the offerings from the previous tenant. As a southerner, I believe CBKB may be the first place in this area to get the concept of comfort food right. I can’t wait to return.
