One of my favorite bars hands down is the BravestÂ located on 38th and 2nd. Â In fact, I’ve spent my last two Fridays there and I’ve been pretty impressed that we were able to score a table on both occasions.
I like the Bravest because beers are cheap. Â No matter what time of day or […]
Congratulations, Gorilla Cheese NYC. Â You win the most disappointing meal I’ve had in 2011.
Gorilla Cheese is a new grilled cheese truck that launched a few weeks back. Â When it parked outside my office the other day, I quickly saved the lunch I brought in for the next day, and headed to the truck […]
Caryn and I don’t see each other nearly as often as we’d like, so when she was by my office the other day, she suggested we meet up for lunch. Â Since we’re both bargain hunters, Spunto was the perfect spot for a sit-down lunch because of its affordable lunch menu.
Now Spunto is the […]
As a contributor to hyperlocal news site Nearsay, I’m invited to check out different events that are part of the site’s concierge program where they reward contributors. Â When I saw an opportunity to dine at Nanoosh, a Mediterranean establishment in the East Village, I decided to take advantage of this offer.
I headed over […]
I was invited to try a new taqueria in Flatiron, so on Friday night, my roommate and I headed to Choza Taqueria on Madison between 27th and 28th.
Now, you may have heard of Choza before if you work downtown. Â There is a Choza down by the Brooklyn Bridge as part of the open […]
For lunch yesterday, Â my office decided to change it up and instead of our usual Subway run, we went to Local. Â Local is a little cafe in “South Village” as Yelp calls it. Â The place is small with about three tables, but if you work in the area, it is great for a […]
I love Mexican food, so when I was asked to plan a work event, I immediately thought of a great deal I read about at Vamos, on 20th and 1st. Â All day on Monday, you can get all you can eat tacos and a margarita for $19.
We were seated inside the restaurant since […]
The other day my co-workers and I decided to take advantage of the nice weather and find a spot where we could dine outside. Â While walking up the streets of Soho, we couldn’t find an affordable spot with outdoor dining (suggestions welcomed), so instead my co-worker Wells directed us to Il Corallo Trattoria, promising […]
When looking for a place to grab lunch the other day, I decided to check out Yelp for some great sandwich shops in the Murray Hill area. Â Luckily, I stumbled across Lamazou.
Lamazou is a little cheese shop, located on 3rd between 26th and 27th that has imported treats from around the world – […]
Last week, my co-worker Alicia suggested that we visit Tina’s Cuban Cuisine after reading about it in Time Out New York’s Cheap Eats Issue. Â I’ve tried Cuban cuisine in the past, and was not a big fan, but figured I’d give it one more try before I crossed it off my list. Â Our co-worker […]
