Leftovers of my pesto pasta!
A couple weeks back, my boyfriend and I were walking through Astoria, when I noticed a new little Italian restaurant that opened on the corner of 34th St and 31st Ave. The restaurant was cute and had an intimate atmosphere and once I read a review on Why [...]
Last night my roommate and I headed to El Parador Cafe, which is right by our apartment on 34th between 1st and 2nd. Â El Parador is the oldest Mexican restaurant in NYC and in fact, my roommate’s parents dined there 35 years ago. We were starving after a day of moving, so we [...]
With Restaurant Week extended until Labor Day, a few of my friends and I decided to check out Michael Jordan’s Steakhouse for lunch on Sunday. Â As I’ve said before, I think a steakhouse is an incredible value for Restaurant Week, especially for lunch, simply because steak can be at least $30 or more, and [...]
The day following All Jacked Up, my roommate and I thought we might be a bit sluggish, so we took the day off from work. Â With Restaurant Week going on, we figured we’d spend the afternoon taking in a nice lunch at a steakhouse, since steakhouses usually provide the best value during this week.
To kick off Restaurant Week, I headed to Park Ave Summer on Monday with a few of my girlfriends. Â I’ve raved about Park Ave Winter before and have claimed that it was one of my better Restaurant Week experiences. Â As a result, I was looking forward to trying their summer menu, since the menu [...]
About two weeks ago, Caryn (thoughts in italics) and I were invited to try Le Perigord, a French restaurant in Midtown. Â While Le Perigord was a classy French establishment, I went in with the mindset that this is a place I’d take my parents (or have them take me) or go on an anniversary [...]
For the past few months I had been invited to try Don Coqui, a Puerto Rican restaurant up in New Rochelle. Â One of my friends, Mike, works up there, so with a built-in taxi driver, I decided to take the Metro-North up
to New Rochelle last week.
New Rochelle is located about [...]
After attending Cook. Eat. Drink. Live last month, I added a trip to Spanish Harlem to eat at Ricardo Steak House to my to-do list. Â So when my roommate Al and I decided that we’d grab a steak dinner as our Christmas gift to each other, we decided to head uptown.
Now, before we [...]

Answer: Arte Pasta.
With my friend Kristen back in town from Atlanta, a few of my girlfriends and I gathered for brunch last weekend to catch up. Â Being sorority sisters, clearly we needed [...]
I like Restaurant.com for its regular deals, but I love it when the gift certificates are 70 or even 80% off. A few weeks ago I snatched a bunch of certificates totaling $135 in savings and costing me a grand $19.80. The best part of these certificates is having the ability to try a [...]
