Brunch at Sarabeth’s

Saturday, June 30, 2007

I had brunch at Sarabeth’s Sarabeth’s (East) with a great group of TNT-ers today after our Saturday morning run. I had dinner at the UWS location Sarabeth’s (West) a couple of years ago and was quite disappointed. The brunch was much better which make sense since that is what Sarabeth’s is known for.
As soon as […]

As many of you know, and are likely eagerly awaiting, the Annual Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contest is rapidly approaching (on July 4th). The event, held at the original Nathan’s Nathan’s Original, which is both covered globally by press, and entered by contestants from all around the world, is a spectacle to behold; especially as […]

Chickpea

Thursday, June 28, 2007

Chickpea Chickpea is more expensive than your average falafel & shawarma joint. Some of their products are worth it and some aren’t. Here’s what you should and shouldn’t get:
Order:Falafels – Different people prefer different sized falafel balls. These are the smaller ones and very fried but well flavored and seasoned.Pitas -They make their own. […]

Dead Sodas

Thursday, June 28, 2007

Matt at x-entertainment compiled a brief list of notable, dead sodas. Reading the list certainly provided a quick flashback. How many have you had? I think I tasted most of these, except the tropical Pepsi flavors.
More recently, Matt posted about the summer line up of notable flavors, including Pepsi Summer Mix (which I hadn’t heard […]

Hellmann’s ‘Real Food’ Series

Wednesday, June 27, 2007

In in a moment of genius, the boys over at Ogilvy & Mather have come up with a show that is all about mayonnaise! It’s Hellmann’s ‘Real Food’ Series and I want to eat every last bite of it! Or perhaps you didn’t read my bio?
Sadly, the show is not really going to […]

Primehouse, Coming Fall 2007

Wednesday, June 27, 2007

Recently Jessica and I have become more respectful of B.R. Guest Restaurants. Particularly since our Barça 18 review. We’ve realized there is a specific niche in the NYC restaurant price spectrum for B.R. Guest, they seem to acknowledge that spot and fill it perfectly! The formula includes, decently good service, decently good food, […]

Godiva’s Chocoiste Line

Tuesday, June 26, 2007

Last night we sampled a new product line from Godiva: Chocoiste. The theme of the line is focusing on packaging yum yum for the tum tum of an individual (that’s industry parlance for ‘delectable’). For instance, an individual chocolate chip cookie, with rich chocolate laced over the top (half of which was available […]

FreshDirect TeleSpam!!

Tuesday, June 26, 2007

FreshDirect TeleSpam
Ugh! FreshDirect is getting desperate. Yesterday evening, we received a voicemail from FreshDirect’s Sarah James, as you can hear in the message, she’s part of their SPAM team!! It makes me sick that companies feel it’s ok to randomly telemarket people at home. Do you think there are executives out there thinking, “Gee, […]

LU’s PiMs

Sunday, June 24, 2007

Today we spent time at my sister’s place, enjoying their brand new baby girl, Sabrina– she’s gorgeous! Less enjoyable though were the PiMs cookies we tried while there.
They are a cracker-like cookie, topped with a half marshmallow/half-mousse-like concoction, and finally coated in chocolate. Sounds good, right? Wrong.
Both Jessica and I did not enjoy them […]

How many guys does it take to mess up pancakes?

Saturday, June 23, 2007

The answer is 3.
We had lunch at 3 Guys, 3 Guys a diner with 3 locations, on the Upper East side. Lon ordered pancakes with scrambled eggs with cheese. The semi-warm pancakes were overcooked and far from fluffy. The cheese on the scrambled eggs had a really weird taste and we didn’t continue eating it.
I […]
