Last week, my boyfriend and I were invited to try Tu Casa, a Spanish and Peruvian restaurant which has locations in Kew Gardens and in Astoria. Â We decided to check out the Astoria spot, and despite living here for nearly two years, I had never noticed this place on Steinway and 30th Ave.
I’ve been cutting back on Restaurant Week lately and have been choosing to do just one or two dinners to not go too overboard with my wallet. This week, my friend and I tried Yerba Buena in the East Village, a restaurant featuring Latin cuisine. Wish I could tell you how we ended up [...]
My boyfriend and I had been discussing our study abroad semesters for so long that we decided we would show our photos to each other, and then visit the cuisine of that country (me Italian, him Spanish).
Last night we headed over to La Rioja on Broadway and 34th Street in Astoria. I pass [...]
Let me preface this post by saying I’ve had Indian four times in my entire life – twice in London on the infamous Brick Lane, and twice here in NYC. Â When I got invited to Tandoor Oven on the Upper East Side on 83rd between Lexington and 3rd, I was excited to expand my [...]
Weâ€™ve had a ton of Broadway giveaways lately (shameless reminder to enter our Leap of Faith giveaway here) but whereâ€™s a cheap place to grab a quick bite?
Sometimes, I donâ€™t have a time to eat before the show, and am just looking for a place where I can grab a few drinks and [...]
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 [...]
One of my favorite bars hands down is the BravestÂ located on 38th and 2nd. Â In fact, I’ve spent my last two Fridays there and I’ve been pretty impressed that we were able to score a table on both occasions.
I like the Bravest because beers are cheap. Â No matter what time of day or [...]
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 – [...]
My friend Tom and I love lobster. So much so that we’ve tried several lobster rolls around this fine city. When I saw a Groupon for $39 to Psari in Astoria that included two lobster deals, with two sides, two soups/salads and two drinks, I instant messaged Tom and let him know that our [...]
