Neighborhood Guide: Greenwich Village

Ah, that beautiful and elusive spot just east of the West Village, containing both the youthful chaos of NYU and the historic Washington Square Park. This hood is the epitome of high-low, and runs the gamut from Blue Hill to Greenwich Village Treehouse (hint: that’s a fratty bar and there is no greenery). There’s something…

NYC Restaurant Round-up: June

June was a travel (and wedding) heavy month, but I still managed to sneak in some excellent meals out. I visited a lot of coffee shops this month, as I’ve been working remotely more often and a change of scenery is most welcome. Read on for some of my favorite spots from the month of…

NYC Restaurant Round-up: May

Any month that starts out with a food-related holiday (Cinco de Mayo) is a good one in my book. I ate some pretty noteworthy tacos this month, and also crossed a major NYC bucket list item off of my list (hint: it includes chicken). My dessert game was pretty weak in May, so I’ll be…

Neighborhood Guide: Meatpacking

Small but mighty, this little corner of the west side has a rich New York history. While it has now become a mecca for tourism and shopping (and also SoHo House attendees), there are a few hidden gems to be explored here. So next time you’re at The Whitney for the afternoon, or have ventured…

NYC Restaurant Round-up: April

Did anyone else feel like April absolutely blew by? I, for one, am consummately amazed by the fact that it’s already spring in New York. The warm weather has been slow-coming, so in April I took advantage of the chill and continued to explore some more hearty and comforting dining options (with some ice cream…

NYC Restaurant Round-up: March

So March officially came roaring in like a lion, am I right? The good thing is that we have a city full of good food to keep us warm. I tried to sneak in as many hearty meals as possible to round out the winter season before it officially becomes time for oysters and rose…

Neighborhood Guide: Upper East Side

As many of you know, I am currently an upper east side resident, and exploring this oft-overlooked neighborhood has been my personal mission over the past two months. While “cutting edge” and “trendy” aren’t normally the words that you would associate with this area, I think that there is certainly something to be said for…

NYC Restaurant Round-Up: February

New month, new neighborhood, but I still keep finding myself downtown and in Brooklyn. One of my goals for the month of March is to spend more time exploring the restaurant scene on the UES (full neighborhood guide coming soon), but for now, I give you a full ad diverse list of my culinary explorations…

NYC Restaurant Round-up: January

Another month, another restaurant round-up. We are officially one month into 2018, and thus far it tastes as delicious as ever. I tried some inventive new places, some total NYC classics, and also revisited some of my favorite, “old faithful” spots this month. Read on for my round-up of all of the places I dined…

Neighborhood Guide: TriBeCa

I often overlook TriBeCa when I make dining plans. Not intentionally, of course, but because it always feels a bit out of the way to me, which is completely nonsensical because every time I go there I wonder why I don’t visit more often. There are some absolute gems in this area, and it is…

NYC Restaurant Round-up: December

Oh, December. This month is always tricky because I find myself gone for the end of the month, and overloaded with holiday parties throughout the first few weeks. This month’s restaurant round-up is lighter than usual, but still packs a punch. Read on for some of the spots I checked out this past month in…

NYC Restaurant Round-up: November

Looking back on this month, it was all about the savory. I think I saved up all of my sweet tooth credits for Thanksgiving, where we noshed on sticky toffee pudding and pumpkin pie. All of these spots felt very seasonally appropriate and hearty as well, which was perfect for cooling temperatures. Read on to…
