I recently got a bike, and just to be honest, the bike was really because I wanted to explore other food venues in our neighborhood easily without having to wait for the subway (yes, true confessions of a fat kid). So on Saturday, my boyfriend and I biked to Ditmars Blvd in Astoria to [...]
A few nights ago, my friend Jess and I were standing in Union Square wondering where to go to dinner. Â We settled on The Loop, a sushi restaurant in Gramercy, simply because it had 4 stars on Yelp.
While all the Yelp reviews raved about the sushi (at least what I could see on [...]
Last week, my friends and I decided to catch up over dinner.Â We all agreed that we wanted to be on the East side, and before I knew it, we planned on Via Della Pace.Â We scooped up aÂ restaurant.com gift certificate at a 70% off discount and were ready to enjoy our meal.
I’ll admit it – sometimes I get suckered into one of our Favorite Food Finds, especially if it’s my neighborhood, and I forget to read the fine print. Â When I saw a coupon for Canz from BeerMenus a few months back, I jumped on it. Â I hadn’t been to this bar/restaurant, but my boyfriend [...]
A couple nights ago, I was heading out to dinner in Astoria and figured I’d check out Petey’s Burger, which has been listed as the best new burger in NYC by Time Out New York.

As we turned down Sullivan [...]
I’ve never left below a 15% tip in my life.Â Until last Thursday.
It was the NCAA tournament, and a few friends and I decided to grab dinner out on the Lower East Side.Â WIth the Syracuse game on, we decided to head toÂ a bar with tvs and went to the Blue Seats on [...]
After taking over an hour to get to my apartment on 34th street from 125th, my family was hungry, cranky and tired. Â We headed to Vezzo, in hopes to get some delicious pizza, but with a half hour wait, we decided to head next door to Da’ Giulio. Â If you are tight on time [...]
Our little lunch group in the office has expanded from our usual cheap lunch spots – Subway and street carts – and recently began ordering in at least once a week. Â Recently, we were attracted to the Thai restaurant Jaiya, because of the lunch specials.
Located in Murray Hill and Long Island City, Jaiya [...]
A few weeks ago, a couple of co-workers and I went searching for a falafel cart that was spotted earlier in the week down on Park Ave South and the lower 20s. Â Unfortunately, the cart had moved, and with our stomachs growling, the New York Burger Co. sign caught our eye. Â While my [...]
