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.

We made reservations and surprisingly for it being a recession, Parlor was […]
Using my trusty City Shuffle Diner’s Deck, I decided to check out a Mexican place in the West Village that I heard about from Foote, a former co-worker. He swore that Diablo Royale was one of the best Mexican places in the city, so I had to see if it lived up to the […]
