Just in time for the new season, is a blog created and designed to fill you in on places we think will offer you a “full dining experience”.
ASPHALT CRUISERS isn’t just about new restaurants, great food & cheap prices – it’s about “THE FULL DINING EXPERIENCE”. We get tired of spending our money at places where we get waiters with poor attitudes, watered down or overpriced cocktails, and just an overall bad time. We love New York and all the restaurants available to us, but ASPHALT CRUISERS is dedicated to those that miss service with a smile – the places where they treat you like they actually want you to come back again. We find a lot of good food, but few places exceed your expectations with their service quality.
Join the movement!!!

Ooooooh! Nelson Blue is great! We’ve come into this New Zealand bar and grill a couple of times for weekend brunch and for Friday evening after work when we’ve wanted to head near South Street Seaport. We have loved every visit. The staff here is so great. This establishment has become a fast favorite for us. Everything on the menu looks like something that will taste delicious. For appetizers, we tried their grilled wings. I think these are now our absolute favorite wings. They’re perfectly sized and grilled and seasoned to perfection and have a bit of a tangy and citrusy flavor. They come with a unique sauce too. Even the staff really loves these. We also tried their lollipop grill chop, which is priced by the piece and cooked to perfection. The final appetizer we tried was the salmon skewer which tasted even more amazing served with their fresh tasting dill mayo. During the weekdays, you must be sure to try the Fried Egg Club served with a salad. I ordered mine without runny eggs, and I loved every bite of that sandwich. Harv had the Grilled NZ Lamb Lollipop Chops. His meal included 5 delicious chops served with a potato and pea cake, and rosemary sauce. He hasn’t stopped talking about it. For the brunch (served weekends only), you must try the Salmon BLT which is served with some amazing bacon! Additionally the Grilled Mahi Mahi sandwich served with arugula, tomato and pickled onions, also comes with a mango chutney that takes this sandwich over the edge! Both of these entrees were served with a salad.
My new favorite drink is their Full Nelson. It’s a combination of Firefly vodka and lemonade. We had ours with a little extra kick. Yeah….it’s a really good drink!
