Last night, my friends Al and Dave wanted to catch up, and what a better place to eat and chat with the boys then a BBQ spot. Â Dave had heard about Georgia’s Eastside BBQ on the LES, and we decided to give it a shot.
The place was empty when we walked in and [...]
One of my new favorite restaurants in Astoria is John Brown’s Smokehouse. Â This place is a little bit off the beaten path and is located at 37th Ave and Crescent Street, so for you Manhattan folks, it is three stops into Queens on the N or Q train.
John Brown’s [...]

The other night, a couple of my girlfriends (including Caryn) and I were looking to get dinner together in Murray Hill. Â We thought we’d try Mason Jar, mainly because we were able to get a $25 restaurant.com gift certificate there for $4.50 with a coupon code (so each of would spend $1, and get [...]

While there aren’t a ton of great barbecue options in the city, Hill Country, Blue Smoke and Dinosaur Bar B Que certainly generate a lot of buzz, but I’m always apprehensive that it will be too dry [...]

In honor of the US’s victory yesterday, we thought we’d share a few more World Cup specials around the city (again, these are not exactly hard to come by, so we’re just picking out a few that we like).
One of our favorites is at Exchange Bar & Grill in Gramercy. If you’re watching [...]

We eagerly jumped on the opportunity to try a new cuisine (this was a first for both of us) and headed over toÂ Shilla, a Korean restaurant located in Korea Town, for a spin. Â If you aren’t familiar with [...]
