WELCOME TO MY LA-BORRRR-A-TORY...O? It was a Dexter's Lab reference, if you didn't catch it. I should probably just move on. If you're a New Yorker, odds are you've heard of Aria Wine Bar. There's a location in the West Village and there's actually a location right near my apartment in Hell's Kitchen. Aria is … Continue reading Food Grind: Laboratorio329
Ben and I decided to wipe the cobwebs off our MoviePasses and spend Friday night seeing a flick. Naturally it was a ridiculously frustrating situation in terms of planning because as soon as we made it to Union Square to pick up our tickets for 'Simple Favor,' MoviePass stopped offering it. HOORAY! I guess it … Continue reading Food grind: Houseman
What the guac?!
I like to think I have a large butt. Mostly from doing lots of squats, but partially because I eat pizza. A lot of it. Which brings me to a new edition of my Restaurant Pick of the Week. I would say that my life has essentially turned into a low-key pizza eating tour of … Continue reading You want a pizza me? 🍕
Stay wild, moon child. Greetings, fellow weirdoughs! You're in for something extra(tressrially) sweet today. ICYMI: Supermoon Bakehouse opened in the LES a few weeks ago. If you haven't been there yet.... what are you waiting for?! I don't know what you've been doing all this time. Anyway, here's something we can all agree on: there … Continue reading This bakery is out of this world….
Hit it, J-Kwon We weren't in the club getting our boozy brunch on, but we were throwing back some vodka and margaritas at The Tipsy Scoop! This East Side "barlour" sells liquor-infused ice cream! How sweet is this concept? It's the first of its kind in the Big Apple. Naturally, we had to give it … Continue reading Errbody in the ‘barlour’ gettin’ tipsy
I usually don't eat too much ice cream, but when it comes soft-serve style and in a fish shaped waffle cone filled with red bean paste, I can reconsider. Meet Taiyaki. It's a Chinatown gem that's bringing the Japanese treat "taiyaki" to the streets of New York. It's recognizable by it's freshly baked fish-shaped ice … Continue reading Taiyaki Takeover
I love a good dumpling. Any kind, really. Steamed, fried, chicken, pork, shrimp: you name it, I'll happily eat it. Ben and I were down in Chinatown a few days ago to take a specific picture from the Manhattan Bridge walkway. We decided that while we were down there, we might as well pop into … Continue reading Dana Digs Dumplings Vol. 2
Full disclosure: This should be last week's Restaurant Pick of the Week! I've been falling a little behind over the past couple of days! But fear not: I'm alive, well and back with your daily dose of NYC's best food! (I have another pick for you that's actually for THIS week, so stay tuned!) Christine … Continue reading RPOTW: A.G. Kitchen
For this edition of my Restaurant Pick of the Week, I'm taking you down The Rabbithole. Ben, April and I jumped on the L train and headed out to Williamsburg yesterday. I definitely wanted to try a "Unicorn Latte" at The End (blog post coming soon!), but we figured we'd grab some brunch at Sweet … Continue reading RPOTW: The Rabbithole
