Let me preface this post by saying I’ve had Indian four times in my entire life – twice in London on the infamous Brick Lane, and twice here in NYC. Â When I got invited to Tandoor Oven on the Upper East Side on 83rd between Lexington and 3rd, I was excited to expand my […]
On my walk home tonight I stumbled uponÂ City Swiggers, a craft beer shop and tasting room on 86th Street between 1st and 2nd Avenues. Opened a month ago, City Swiggers has gained some recognitionÂ among beer gurus, but it’s great for anyone who loves to try new things. My boyfriend is a huge fan of […]
A few weeks ago Laura (thoughts in Italics)Â and I were kindly invited to dine atÂ Jones Wood Foundry, a “food driven pub” (love that) tucked away off of First Avenue on the Upper East Side. Besides fish and chips,Â Shepherd’sÂ pie, bangers and mash, and beer, I wasn’t exactly sure what else constituted British cuisine, so I […]

Last Tuesday I met an old boss/friend for drinks to catch up. We both live on the UES and wanted to find a place with specials (or at least I did) that wouldn’t be taken over by Fat Tuesday celebrations. Having walked by Trinity Pub a few times, […]

I apologize if I saw you on Saturday. Â Why? Â Because most likely I rambled on about my phenomenal dinner on Friday.
My boyfriend and I decided to check out Uva on Friday night on the Upper East Side. Â Walking into the restaurant, you knew this was […]

There are a couple of Mexican restaurants within a three block radius of my apartment and I still need to check them out, but so far Sabor A Mexico has won my heart (there’s also anÂ East Village location). Â I went a few Fridays ago and was surprised that my […]
I’ve heard a ton about Two Boots pizza over the past few years (and we’ve even shared some Deal Alerts), but for some unknown reason I had never been there before. That changed a few weeks ago when my boyfriend discovered there was one a few blocks from me and insisted that we go.
When I moved to the Upper East Side, I knew I had to scout out a few staples: my new pizzeria, bagel shop, Thai restaurant and sushi restaurant. Those are my “must haves.” While it took a few tries for me to find my new Thai spot (posts on that journey to come), I […]
Since moving (back) to the Upper East Side, I’ve been on a quest to hunt out new go-to spots in my neighborhood. Sometimes I get a hankering for pub food, so finding a decent bar with a good burger was something that appealed to me. Everyday I walked by Genesis Restaurant & Bar, and […]
To kick off Restaurant Week, I headed to Park Ave Summer on Monday with a few of my girlfriends. Â I’ve raved about Park Ave Winter before and have claimed that it was one of my better Restaurant Week experiences. Â As a result, I was looking forward to trying their summer menu, since the menu […]
