A while back I was in Morningside Heights looking for a place to have dinner with my boyfriend. We finally narrowed it down to Italian and settled on the well-reviewed Pisticci. It’s fairly small inside but it had a basement that would be nice for groups, as well as an outdoor area. They also [...]
Earlier this summer a few of us wanted to get together for some drinks but we were getting antsy to try something new. A little digging online for good beers at good prices brought us to Peculier Pub in the Village.
A favorite among beer enthusiasts (and NYU students apparently, so the summer was [...]
Since I babysit on the UWS, and I’ll be attending school in the fall there as well, I’ve begun exploring the neighborhood quite a bit more. I know it’s a haven for restaurants (often out of my student price range), but I don’t see too many bars. The other night my friend/ex-coworker and I [...]
The other day, I had the pleasure of joining Jason fromÂ I Dream of Pizza for his monthly pizza club.Â Pizza Club is basically a group of Jasonâ€™s friends who get together at a pizza joint for some â€˜za.
We headed to the West Village to try out 900 Degrees â€“ and if you are [...]
My friend Tom and I have been on a lobster roll hunt around NYC for the past few months. Â Recently, we had tried Pearl Oyster Bar and while we liked it, we wanted to go somewhere easier on the wallet – which let’s face it, is hard when lobster is involved.
We turned to [...]
One of my favorite places to eat in Astoria is 5 Napkin Burger. Â Now before you start thinking this is another Astoria post, there are locations in Hell’s Kitchen and the Upper West Side too!
I’ve only eaten at the Astoria location, and I have to say, it is a great addition to the [...]
Astoria has been getting some great restaurants lately. The latest addition to the neighborhood is The Queens Kickshaw, that’s a coffee shop specializing in gourmet grilled cheese sandwiches. I’ve been twice and I loved it both times. First, I love cheese. You may recall I plan on naming my kid Brie, Colby and Jack [...]
My friends and I were wandering around the LES last weekend looking for a quick dinner to kick off Saturday night. We stumbled upon Tai Thai on 1st Street and were lured in by the chalkboard outside touting $3 beers and $2.50 glasses of wine. The place is small and cutely decorated, but you’d [...]

I apologize if I saw you on Saturday. Â Why? Â Because most likely I rambled on about my phenomenal dinner on Friday.
My boyfriend and I decided to check out Uva on Friday night on the Upper East Side. Â Walking into the restaurant, you knew this was [...]
Good news! One of my favorite burger places, Joy Burger Bar, has opened its second location. Â If you haven’t made it up to their 100th and Lexington location, you can now check them out in the West Village on Washington Pl and 6th Ave.
I stopped by last night for their soft opening party, [...]
