The other day my co-workers and I decided to take advantage of the nice weather and find a spot where we could dine outside. Â While walking up the streets of Soho, we couldn’t find an affordable spot with outdoor dining (suggestions welcomed), so instead my co-worker Wells directed us to Il Corallo Trattoria, promising [...]
Last night we were invited toÂ Exchange Bar and Grill in honor of its official opening (it’s been in a soft-opening stage for a few weeks). Laura had a prior commitment, so I headed over withÂ McKenna (who does our design/tech stuff for the blog) to check out this new place. I’ve walked by it many, [...]
To continue Veroâ€™s wine tasting offerings, the midtown location only (53rd and 2nd) is hosting Wine on Wednesdays – a wine sampling every Wednesday evening through April. For $35 youâ€™ll get to try four to six wines and light hors dâ€™oeurves (e.g., cheese platter, paninis, bruschetta) from 5-7 pm (RSVPs are recommended).
Last week, I was in a quick rush for lunch and decided to check out a new street cart across the street from my office. Â I was in the mood for falafel and luckily, the guy on the street had a great neon green poster advertising my dish for $3.75. Â I was sold.
When looking for a place to grab lunch the other day, I decided to check out Yelp for some great sandwich shops in the Murray Hill area. Â Luckily, I stumbled across Lamazou.
Lamazou is a little cheese shop, located on 3rd between 26th and 27th that has imported treats from around the world – [...]
Last week, my co-worker Alicia suggested that we visit Tina’s Cuban Cuisine after reading about it in Time Out New York’s Cheap Eats Issue. Â I’ve tried Cuban cuisine in the past, and was not a big fan, but figured I’d give it one more try before I crossed it off my list. Â Our co-worker [...]
Last week, we reported that Time Out New York launched it’s Cheap Eats issue. Â In this particular issue, I loved that they bulleted out key restaurants in 8 neighborhoods – and Murray Hill, where I work, was one of them. Â Second on the list was Carl’s Steaks, and I shared the link with my [...]
In the past month or so two coworkers won free happy hours at Public House (the same is true with Turtle Bay). What impresses me about Public House’s happy hour is that it’s free for 50 members of the winner’s party…not Â½ off drinks like at Turtle Bay and not $20 all you can [...]
Guest Post By Vivek Sukumaran, Astoria Correspondent
I apologize to those offended by my use of a plate and silverware when eating street food. I agree it's best eaten out of aluminum foil, or in a Styrofoam container and with plastic cutlery. But I didn't have much of a choice, since I was [...]
Last Tuesday, I decided to visit an old favorite bar, Flight 151, down in Chelsea. Â While Flight 151 has a variety of specials throughout the week, what really attracted me to the bar on a Tuesday is that it’s flip night. Â For those unfamiliar, on Tuesday beginning at 7 p.m. through 1 a.m., every [...]
