NY Culinary Festival

Saturday, May 20, 2006

Perfect timing cause Angie’s mom was in town…..Angela junior and senior are both food lovers who just had lunch at Bouley earlier and didn’t want to turn down our invitation to another food event. So, Lon got our tickets and we headed over to Pier 94 where the event was supposed to […]

Mizu

Friday, May 19, 2006

Mizu is always packed but aside from slightly above average decor, I can’t see why. The noise level is like being in a sports bar and 50 Cent’s “Candyshop” is blaring loudly. The wait staff rushes you and is ready to grab your plate as you pick up your last bite….even though […]

Barbounia

Monday, May 15, 2006

My college girlfriends get together for each of our birthdays. It seems common and simple yet it’s the best thing because it guarantees that no matter how busy we all get, we will get together at least a certain number of times per year….it used to be 6 of us, it is […]

Dylan Prime

Friday, May 12, 2006

Lon took me to Dylan Prime for my birthday because Kasi recommended the cheese fondue and Lon knows that I want to dip everything into melted cheese =P
The fondue (made with farmhouse cheeses) was delicious! The consistency and flavor was perfect. It comes with chopped granny smith apples, pieces of bread, […]

Grano Trattoria

Wednesday, May 10, 2006

Grano is suprisingly good. It looks like the average West Village Italian with neighborhood prices. The food definitely takes a step up. The bread and our appetizer was just good but the fresh homemade pastas we got were excellent.
Breadsticks are on every table. The waiter then brings Italian bread and their version […]

L’Annam

Saturday, May 6, 2006

Generally, pretty good flavors at L’Annam L’Annam. Authentic fried rice with shrimp and Chinese sausage, a good Curry Seafood Casserole, nicely sauteed prawns, and all in very large portions. It’s cheap for the area and about a block from my apartment. I would suggest that they go lighter on the corn starch but […]

Piola

Friday, May 5, 2006

Really thin crust pizza on the expensive side at Piola, the international chain. It’s decent but not much flavor and skimpy on toppings. The service is really good so that’s prob what you’re paying for. I don’t like the very colorful decor either.

Aja

Thursday, May 4, 2006

Aja is a nice looking place with nice bathrooms….lots of wood and stone, dimly lit, with a bar on the side and a sushi bar in front. The menu is very extensive, covering Japanese, Thai, and Chinese cuisines.
We decided to get a soup, a salad, and 2 appetizers, and 1 entree to share. […]

Pork Tenderloin

Monday, May 1, 2006

MMmmmmm……..a whole roasted pork tenderloin with a lime cilantro rice, mango salsa, and sugar snap peas…..
Check out the pictures on Flickr.
And then since we had a whole tenderloin left after that meal, we made them into burritos….yum
Check out the full burrito pics.
