Brasserie 292

Friday, December 16, 2011

Lon and I headed up to Poughkeepsie, NY for a nearly impromptu press trip this past Sunday. The plan was really to begin our tour on Monday morning and since we wanted to avoid Monday morning traffic we were on our own for Sunday.  We didn’t have super high expectations for restaurants in a small, […]

Lunch at JoJo

Wednesday, September 22, 2010

After such a lovely lunch at Jean Georges, I decided try another lunch at another one of his restaurants. This time, it was
JoJo 160 East 64th Street, New York, NY 10021, where I dragged along a different crew, mom and Grandma Olia. If you check his website, you’ll notice that JoJo […]

Lunch at Jean Georges

Wednesday, September 8, 2010

Lately, it’s been hard to enjoy meals the way that I’m used to. Mild nausea is still mild nausea so I haven’t been making many plans to go to restaurants. It feels like a waste of time and money. Still, I couldn’t pass up the opportunity when my dad’s friends were in town. Uncle Richard […]

Tournesol 50-12 Vernon Boulevard, Long Island City, NY 11101 seems to be the restaurant that is most recommended in Long Island City and it certainly was full the night we went.  Unfortunately, my party of eight had such a bad experience–it is certain that none of us will go back.
First, we were […]

Le Bernardin

First, Happy New Year!
Ahhh….the holidays, constant eating.
So, the eve of New Year’s Eve, we went to
Le Bernardin 155 West 51st Street, New York, NY 10019, a much anticipated dinner, a holiday treat to ourselves. No presents this year since we’re getting a new apartment (more on that soon) but time with […]

Le Cirque

Monday, December 21, 2009

While friends and family are in town, this is the time of year for “nice” meals, a few extra splurges and indulgences that we pay the price for later (when the credit card bill comes and your favorite jeans don’t fit). The first of my holiday treats to self was having lunch with Angie and […]

Cafe Orlin, Spot Dessert Bar, Zucco – Le French Diner

Wednesday, December 9, 2009

I did a lot of eating out yesterday, starting at
Cafe Orlin 41 St. Mark’s Place, New York, NY 10003 for lunch, only to eat some “real” food before checking out Pichet Ong’s new
Spot Dessert Bar 13 St. Mark’s Place, New York, NY 10003. I picked up some […]

James Beard Luncheon Aboard Queen Mary 2

Saturday, August 1, 2009

My mom and I were the last to arrive to the James Beard Luncheon, unintentionally. Between traffic and the construction redirecting the Brooklyn Battery Tunnel entrance, we were nervous that we’d miss out on so much. When we arrived, we were lucky enough to snatch a few hors d’ oeuvres, like this beautiful shrimp cocktail, […]

Country Cafe

Friday, July 31, 2009

Country Cafe 69 Thompson Street, New York, NY 10012 is a relaxed little place where people seem to linger for hours. They managed to fill up just until they were full and then no one else arrived. They didn’t even turn over tables that night (Tuesday) but that seemed to be their […]

Monday was our one year anniversary and Lon took me to Daniel Daniel. I don’t even know where to begin on this post. It was just an exquisite evening, but of course, being married to Lon makes everything seem more wonderful.
There are so many little details that make the Daniel experience memorable, from the rotating […]
