The Bib Gourmand restaurant winners are widely considered the best and most affordable restaurants in New York.

Both restaurants received the prize for 2015.

Venturo sucks. Been there a bunch of times, not impressed at all. Funny how it gets these awards but it’s always dead when you walk by. Today I looked in at prime time had two customers and during dinner time as well. They’re so good they’re closed for lunch????
Who gives these awards out seriously?

Both have great food. Salt & Fat has much better service. Venturo staff acts like they’re bothered you’re there. I agree there are better places for authentic cuisine. I hope they don’t overlook La Flor although I guess that’s Woodside. That place is pretty reliable.

imho, I like Venturo and Salt and Fat but there’s better restaurants in Sunnyside – particularly among the ethnic ones like Punda Tibetan or one of the Peruvian chicken places (I like them all).

But I suppose “Bib Gourmand” awards don’t go to the more “hole in the wall” sort of spots .

I don’t understand the appeal of this place. Expensive finger foods, cramped environment, yuppie clientele, and toilets that clog every time I stop by to drop a duce.
