A few nights ago, my friend Jess and I were standing in Union Square wondering where to go to dinner. Â We settled on The Loop, a sushi restaurant in Gramercy, simply because it had 4 stars on Yelp.
While all the Yelp reviews raved about the sushi (at least what I could see on [...]
For an limited time, East Pacific in Murray Hill is offering $3 regular maki rolls all day and night. They’re also touting $1 sushi and and sashimi pieces. No word on how long this deal will last or if it’s valid for take-out as well, but stop by why you [...]
Last weekend, I was invited to a blogger brunch at mai cuisine, a fast-casual restaurant located near Grand Central on 41st and Madison. Â What makes mai interesting, is that the front of the restaurant is more like a deli, where you can pick up pre-packaged foods, and the back is more like a restaurant.
When I moved to the Upper East Side, I knew I had to scout out a few staples: my new pizzeria, bagel shop, Thai restaurant and sushi restaurant. Those are my “must haves.” While it took a few tries for me to find my new Thai spot (posts on that journey to come), I [...]
I’m a big sushi fan so when I can find deals beyond the standard $8-9 for two rolls and soup/salad at lunch, I’m pretty excited. That’s why I love Hane Sushi near Peter Cooper and Stuy Town. With rotating specials each day, you can be sure to get a bargain on delicious sushi.

My roommate Al and I headed over to Nana Sushi on a Saturday [...]
I was meeting up with a few friends on a Friday night, and instead of the typical bar scene, we wanted to do a simpler dinner and drinks. Always on the hunt for a good deal, we decided to try Cherin Sushi, a BYOB sushi place in the East Village.
Although the restaurant is [...]
If you are anything like me, chances are most of the time you go “out to eat” for lunch at work, it involves splitting a $5 footlong with someone, grabbing a salad or ordering takeout – and eating at your desk. Â But when it is nice and sunny outside on a Friday, I’m going [...]
Simply put, I love sushi. I dread the day that I find out I have a bun in the oven for many, many reasons, but one of them is seriously because I won’t be able to eat sushi for the duration of my pregnancy. So one way that I like to celebrate my baby-free [...]
After reading four star reviews on Yelp for Ichiro, I decided to check out this sushi establishment on the Upper East Side on Second Ave between 87th and 88th. Although I’ve lived in the neighborhood for several months, I still haven’t found my go-to sushi place so was eager to give this place a [...]
