Last week, my boyfriend and I were invited to try Tu Casa, a Spanish and Peruvian restaurant which has locations in Kew Gardens and in Astoria. Â We decided to check out the Astoria spot, and despite living here for nearly two years, I had never noticed this place on Steinway and 30th Ave.
Sometimes readers say that I write about the same neighborhoods repeatedly. Â Well folks, I’ve made it out to Forest Hills.
Earlier this month, my boyfriend and I were invited to try La Vigna, an Italian restaurant out in Forest Hills. Â Since we live in Queens in Astoria, it was about a 15-minute subway ride, [...]
Let me preface this post by saying I’ve had Indian four times in my entire life – twice in London on the infamous Brick Lane, and twice here in NYC. Â When I got invited to Tandoor Oven on the Upper East Side on 83rd between Lexington and 3rd, I was excited to expand my [...]
Weâ€™ve had a ton of Broadway giveaways lately (shameless reminder to enter our Leap of Faith giveaway here) but whereâ€™s a cheap place to grab a quick bite?
Sometimes, I donâ€™t have a time to eat before the show, and am just looking for a place where I can grab a few drinks and [...]
This past weekend when I was visiting the Ditmars area of Astoria, I decided to grab some takeout at Bangkok Tasty. As you may recall if you read this blog back in 2009, Bangkok Tasty was one of my favorite Thai restaurants in the neighborhood. Â However, since the restaurant doesn’t deliver to the Broadway [...]
I’ll be completely honest – if I read Mundo’s menu prior to visiting the restaurant, I probably would have decided to pick a different place. Â The restaurant is a mix of Turkish/Mediterranean/Argentinian, with a lot of vegetarian-friendly dishes. Â I’ve always heard this place was definitely worth checking out, but as someone not as familiar [...]
A few years ago, Quiznos was all the rage, and then it was the $5 footlong at Subway. Â Now my friends, we have Potbelly. Â Potbelly is a Chicago-sandwich chain, that specializes in the art of a warm, toasted sandwich.
When you walk in, you have your choice of some pre-selected sandwiches on a menu, [...]
I’m always interested in exploring new bars in the neighborhood, so I headed over to Kinsale Tavern on Friday night with my boyfriend for some drinks and bar food. It was anything but rowdy on a Friday, but that actually suited us just fine because we wanted to talk and be able to hear [...]
I always struggle with where to go for dinner when I’m seeing a Broadway show. Â After seeing Catch Me If You Can with my friend Tom last week, we decided to hit up Vynl.
Vynl’s menu is made up of some great American favorites – burgers, wraps, sandwiches, breakfast options all day and mac [...]
After watching Man Vs. Food’s Brooklyn episode over a year and a half ago, I’ve been wanting to check out L&B Spumoni Gardens. Â Since this restaurant is located in Gravesend (aka the last stop on the N before Coney Island), I knew chances of me visiting this spot were pretty slim. Â When a friend [...]
