I don’t do brunch too often, but when I do I want to be sure it’s a good time. Some of my favorites include Calle Ocho, Sunburnt Calf, and Van Diemens (have we really not written about Calle Ocho and Van Diemens yet?!). I went with two friends over MLK weekend and Calle Ocho [...]
A while back I went with my boyfriend’s family to dine at E & E Grill House. Now for full disclosure, his family knows the owner, but let’s just put it this way, if I didn’t like it I simply wouldn’t write about it.
I was looking forward to our lunch for two reasons: [...]
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 [...]
Here in Astoria, the King (of Falafel) sits on his throne at 30th Street and Broadway. Â And by God, does this man deserve his throne. Â After all, he’s the 2010 Winner of the Vendy Awards, so you know that means he’s a top food truck.
The King of Falafel and Shawarma is my go-to [...]
A few weeks ago Laura (thoughts in Italics)Â and I were kindly invited to dine atÂ Jones Wood Foundry, a “food driven pub” (love that) tucked away off of First Avenue on the Upper East Side. Besides fish and chips,Â Shepherd’sÂ pie, bangers and mash, and beer, I wasn’t exactly sure what else constituted British cuisine, so I [...]

There are a couple of Mexican restaurants within a three block radius of my apartment and I still need to check them out, but so far Sabor A Mexico has won my heart (there’s also anÂ East Village location). Â I went a few Fridays ago and was surprised that my [...]
I was invited to try a new taqueria in Flatiron, so on Friday night, my roommate and I headed to Choza Taqueria on Madison between 27th and 28th.
Now, you may have heard of Choza before if you work downtown. Â There is a Choza down by the Brooklyn Bridge as part of the open [...]
One of my go-to restaurants in Astoria is Bareburger. Â Now before you roll your eyes and think this is another Astoria review, Bareburger also just launched a location in Greenwich Village.
Now as you can probably tell, Bareburger is a burger joint. Â The Astoria location is always packed, so best if you have a [...]
Last night my roommate and I headed to El Parador Cafe, which is right by our apartment on 34th between 1st and 2nd. Â El Parador is the oldest Mexican restaurant in NYC and in fact, my roommate’s parents dined there 35 years ago. We were starving after a day of moving, so we [...]
Yesterday, my friends Katharine, Yael and I decided it’d be the perfect day to visit several bars and drink Riesling as part of the Riesling Bar Crawl. Â Problem was, we forgot the World Cup was on, so every time we went to check out a bar, it was either crowded or closed, since it [...]
