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, [...]
Congratulations, Gorilla Cheese NYC. Â You win the most disappointing meal I’ve had in 2011.
Gorilla Cheese is a new grilled cheese truck that launched a few weeks back. Â When it parked outside my office the other day, I quickly saved the lunch I brought in for the next day, and headed to the truck [...]
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 [...]
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 [...]

Earlier this week Laura reviewed a cheap Mexican place to appease our friend Doug. Oddly enough, I too sought out a greasy and slightly sketchy Mexican joint this weekend to satisfy one of our most loyal readers. I admit that finding a new Mexican spot was not my original goal, but after I trekked [...]
A couple weeks ago, our friend Doug commented on our blog in regards to our post on Taco Taco:
