I usually try to avoid midtown at all costs - especially during business and dining hours. Aside from Friedman's and Keens Steakhouse, there's really nothing great in the 30's, until now! Rag Trader and their downstairs piano lounge Bo Peep opened earlier in the year....

Not going to lie, I was very upset a few years ago when Green Square Tavern closed. It was my go to lunch spot and I still haven’t been able to find a Turkey Burger as good as that one.

When Kat & Theo opened, I meant to check out the space, but never got around to eati...

Yes, I am going to preface this post with: Don Angie is my favorite restaurant of 2017, and it very well may be my favorite of 2018.

I went a few weeks ago and cannot stop talking about it. To be honest, I am always a bit hesitant to book a reservation so far in advance...

It's been a while since I've reviewed a restaurant. These days, it's so much easier to go to Instagram, scroll through an account's feed and judge a restaurant by its photos (just as it is easier to post a photo to Instagram).  To be honest, I can't remember the last t...

I've been a huge fan of Vic's since its opening a few year ago and it's one of my go-to spots when I am craving pasta and don't want to spend a fortune. I've been for my birthday, Valentine's Day and Girl's Night Out, but last week was the first time going in for brunc...

The East Village is known for its diversity of restaurants - every cuisine exists at a range of price points: some incredible, some just okay and some not so great. But the one niche that hasn't been filled completely is Italian food, until about a month ago thanks to...

This past weekend, I had brunch at Bar Omar in Williamsburg and it was the first time I ever had French/Algerian food. The sister restaurant of Chez Omar in Paris opened about a year ago and features a variety of North African flavors and Parisian-inspired dishes. The...

Funny enough when typing the name of the restaurant to friends it auto corrects to either Boring Place or Losing Place, and both could not be more ironic or false. Building from his roots at Union Square Cafe and ABC Kitchen, Dan Kluger takes seasonal cooking to the ne...

The Smile on Bond Street has always been a go-to brunch spot when looking for somewhere to go in the NoHo area, but in my almost six years of living in NYC, I never tried their dinner menu. We went this past Tuesday and the restaurant was packed. When I walked through...
