After a full day of moving into my new apartment, my boyfriend and I headed over to Telly’s Taverna on 23rd Ave in Astoria. We were invited in to check out this Greek restaurant by the owner, and I was very excited to try a place I had never visited before in my neighborhood. [...]
A few weeks back, I was invited to check out The Pitch & Fork on the UES, on 1st Ave between 83rd and 84th. Here’s five reasons why you should check it out too:
1). The croquettes: We started the meal with the gruyere croquettes with a horseradish sauce. We thought these were delicious [...]
A few weeks back, I was invited to try Beet, a new American restaurant on the UES on 2nd between 84th and 85th. As someone who used to live on the UES, this restaurant felt like a grown up restaurant in the neighborhood, different than one of the restaurants that has a huge bar [...]
Last night I checked out Cafetasia on 8th St between University and Greene. I picked this Thai spot simply because you could receive 30% off (up to $50) thanks to a Scoutmob code. For those who don’t know Scoutmob, you flash a code on your phone and get 30% off.

Since the restaurant is located downtown, it [...]
A few weeks back I was invited to E-San Thai to try some of their dishes. After going to check out the new Disney movie Oz in Kips Bay with the BF (for free, thanks to How About We), we decided to swing by this spot for dinner.
The restaurant was empty at 9:30 [...]
Often, my friends and I head to a Broadway show, and we struggle where to eat dinner beforehand. Our concern is we want to go somewhere that can get us out in an hour, has good food, and isn’t over run with tourists. Earlier this month, I was invited in to try Grand Sichuan, [...]
Last week, my fabulous friend Bradley at Amuse*Bouche invited me to a blogger tasting with some Astoria folks at this new pizza spot off of Ditmars and 36th Street,

Tufino Pizzeria Napoletana. After trying six types of pizza, a fried calzone and much more, here are five reasons why you [...]
A couple weeks ago, I was invited to try Aged on the Upper West Side. Aged actually has two steakhouses, one on Broadway and 88th, and one in Forest Hills, and I was honestly surprised how big Aged was – dimly lit, but lots of tables, perfect for both big parties or dates.
I would have never thought of visiting a South African restaurant, but when my friend Steve decided we were heading to Brooklyn so he could relive some of his favorite cuisine from an abroad trip, I figured why not?
Madiba is located in Fort Greene and to be honest, I was a little nervous [...]
