Great Burrito

Friday, September 29, 2006

There’s probably several places in the city with similar or the same name so this Great Burrito is the hole in the wall is the one on 6th ave and 23rd. I have no desire to eat there (not a pretty place) but definitely worth ordering in. Lon and I each got […]

Taste of Tokyo and Grano Trattoria

Tuesday, September 26, 2006

In the last couple of weeks, I revisited 2 restaurants that I liked: Taste of Tokyo and Grano Trattoria. Both nights were disappointing because 2 very good and reasonably priced places had slipped.
Taste of Tokyo gave us very sloppy cuts of sashimi that were very tendonous and a much smaller portion of […]

Diner 24 CLOSED!

Tuesday, September 19, 2006

I think we should all take a moment of silence………
Does anyone know why they closed? This is terrible!!!!I need those disco fries (made with melted brie and truffle oil, with a sprinkle of herbs). The duck meatloaf was also delicious. Good burgers too. How could this happen to me?

BLT Prime

Monday, September 18, 2006

Great place! At BLT Prime You start with some bread and chicken liver pate, then their signature popovers. (Lon loves them but I wasn’t that impressed.)
Our table of 4 (celebrating Justin K’s birthday) started with a crabcake, goat cheese stuffed beets, a fresh mozzarella with tomatoes and fresh pesto, and a corn […]

Tabla

Monday, September 18, 2006

Sat night was my fourth visit to Tabla spread over a 6 year time span. Each time, I’ve been less and less impressed with my meal, the first visit being superb and the last one being just ok and certainly not worth the prices.
The service is still fantastic. I did enjoy my seared […]

Odwalla’s Vanilla Being Soymilk

Thursday, September 14, 2006

What it is:
Odwalla created a fantastic tasting vanilla flavored soy milk! (soy milk is a non-dairy beverage made from soybeans. It is often used as an alternative to milk for those who are lactose intolerant or are avoiding dairy.) The half-gallon carton retails for about $3.49 and contains eight servings of eight fluid […]

Bravo Pizza

Wednesday, September 13, 2006

There’s more than one place called Bravo (though they are all related)– I’m referring to the one on 5th ave.
Lon and I ordered their “Chicago Style Pizza”, half sausage, half plain. The delivery guy obviously didn’t hold the pizza box straight because it was smooshed onto one side, affecting approximately 3 […]

Daphne’s Carribean

Wednesday, September 6, 2006

***Daphne’s has moved again***
Daphne’s on 14th St has moved. It used to be this dirty looking fast food joint with cheap but good food, according to Lon. So after my cousin Olivia gave me an eye exam, we went towards Daphne’s for dinner – at their new location which none of us […]
