Every time I pass Aroma 31 a block away from me, the restaurant isÂ absolutely empty. After hearing that the place had a brunch special for $12, we decided to check it out – and now I’m wondering how thisÂ place is empty.
For $12, you get your choice of a mimosa or sangria with any [...]
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 [...]
Last night, my friend Wix and I were en route to redeem a ScoutMob dealÂ when we discovered the restaurant was closed. Since we were in theÂ mood for pasta, we decided to check out Spina on Ave B.
Spina had a happy hour going on til 8, so we took advantage of aÂ meatball dish – [...]
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.

A year ago, my old roommate Al and I saw a Yelp Deal for Club A Steakhouse. For $80, we saw that we’d get a three course dinner plus a bottle of wine, so we figured we’d buy it and use it together. Â Needless to say, it took about [...]
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 [...]
While I’ve lived on the UES for over a year now, there are a number of restaurants and bars that I haven’t gotten around to trying yet. So last week my boyfriend and I decided to hit up three new bars: Ryan’s Daughter, Caledonia Scottish Pub, and Auction House.
We started at Ryan’s Daughter [...]
If you’re looking for something different to do this weekend, consider seeing the Fab Faux, a Beatles tribute band on Saturday night.Â Circle Line Sightseeing Cruises and World Yacht are presenting the outdoor concert at Pier 81 at 41st Street at 8 pm. The band is supposed to be excellent and the setting will make [...]
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 [...]
Tuesdays are a great night for going out. It’s nice for catching up with a friend since it’s still early enough in the week Â that restaurants and bars aren’t too crowded. And as an extra bonus, because it’s early in the week, restaurants and bars will offer great deals to get people in their [...]
