I've actually never made it down to New York City's historic Stone Street. Part of me has always felt that it's just SO far out of the way being that it's incredibly far downtown. Now that I've actually seen it for myself, I understand why people like it so much! How cute is this place?! … Continue reading Stone Street on Sunday
Pizza is my Patronus (Speedy Romeo)
(Speedy) Romeo, Romeo. Wherefore art thou Romeo? For those not up on their Shakespeare, 'wherefore' means 'why', so my real question is this: Speedy Romeo, why are you so GOOD? After spending the afternoon in the area, we popped into this Lower East Side joint for dinner last night. The reviews don't lie-- this wood-fired … Continue reading Pizza is my Patronus (Speedy Romeo)
Dana Digs Dumplings
And who doesn't? Mimi Cheng's dumplings are so good I swear they'll change the mind of any non-believer. Today we stopped in to this small east village joint for some delicious Taiwanese dumplings. They're made from scratch and you can watch the pros hard at work behind the counter, which I found super intriguing. Ben … Continue reading Dana Digs Dumplings
A little bird told me…
...that I was going to love Birds & Bubbles! Lie, they did not. April and I headed down to the Lower East Side today to nom on some fried chicken and biscuits. (Are you seeing a trend here? My insides are. They are not happy, but my tastebuds say otherwise.) Tucked away on the basement … Continue reading A little bird told me…
Jack’s Wife Who?
I've been wanting to try Jack's Wife Freda for so long because... Instagram? Kidding. I've seriously wanted to try the food and having seen the restaurant, it definitely has a quaint vibe. We tried the Nolita location and I left with a broken heart and empty stomach because the wait was an hour and a … Continue reading Jack’s Wife Who?
Just because it’s easy to overlook…
Uncle Marios on the corner of 50th and 9th. Great pizza and with all the restaurants in Hell's Kitchen, it's easy to miss. I will say, however, if you're looking for a fine dining experience, this place isn't for you. The service is chaotic (it's a one-woman show and she's constantly yelling out orders as … Continue reading Just because it’s easy to overlook…
Two thumbs up for Two Hands
Headed down to Two Hands for some healthy goodness today. My budget-peasant-diet this week has consisted primarily of pizza and four days worth of pasta, so it was nice to get my hands on some fresh avocado toast! So yummy. I was dead set on getting an acai bowl, but I'm glad I ended up … Continue reading Two thumbs up for Two Hands
Beating the heat at Kith Treats
Ben has been a longtime Ronnie Fieg fan, which is how I found out about Kith. I definitely owe my discovery of the "street wear" style to Ben and Kith is a major leader in the niche industry. We've been to both the Soho store and the Brooklyn store various times and we've had Kith … Continue reading Beating the heat at Kith Treats
Pasta at Bar Pitti
I've been wanting to try Bar Pitti in the West Village for a while now, so I'm happy that we finally made it over there this weekend! I've heard a mix of reviews about it in terms of food and service, which made me slightly hesitant to suggest it to the group, but I'm really … Continue reading Pasta at Bar Pitti
Ben and I love trying new places and yesterday we finally tried the Egg Shop on Elizabeth St., which I've personally been dying to go to since I love small, cosy (instagrammable...kidding) spots. Not only is the name fun, but a restaurant with a menu focused on eggs?! Sounds heavenly. And it was. I got the … Continue reading Eggs, y’all!
