Sunday Funday in Brooklyn

Matt and I found ourselves back in NYC for his gig last weekend. This time, we scheduled a late night bus back to Boston on Sunday so we could spend the day in Brooklyn. I was introduced to the amazingness of Brooklyn when I met Matt. I was living in the East Village at the [read more →]

Sunday Brunching at The Breslin

Our final stop in our New York trip last weekend was brunch at The Breslin. I talked a little bit before about how we’re always torn between wanting to go to old favorites and trying new places whenever we’re in NYC – well, The Breslin is sort of new. We went once almost two years [read more →]

Another Great Weekend in NYC

Things have been busier than normal over in my world. Last week I had my first paper due for the online course I’m taking, then I flew back from Huntsville late Friday night, took an early Saturday morning bus to NYC for Matt’s gig, and then flew out of NYC on Sunday afternoon to go [read more →]

Finding “your runner” in the NYC Marathon can be a little tricky. Matt and I picked a spot for me to go see him in Brooklyn close to his old apartment (to guarantee I wouldn’t get lost getting there!). We used to go to this sandwich shop called Choice Market that happened to be right [read more →]

NYC Marathon Weekend – Day Two

We had planned on going to Shopsin’s for breakfast on Saturday. Unfortunately, we realized when we got there at 11am that it was far too late to get a table. What’s tricky about New York is that everywhere worth going to has a long wait for brunch. You never want to wait, but you also [read more →]

NYC Marathon Weekend – Day One

Matt ran the New York City Marathon yesterday, so we made a whole weekend of it. I was once again reminded of how much I love it there. We took the Bolt Bus on Friday afternoon. I am definitely less tolerant of the Bolt Bus than Matt is. The seats are so uncomfortable! I got [read more →]

Restaurants: Peasant

Matt and I spent the day in New York last Saturday and decided to stray from our usual picks and splurge on nice meal. Peasant, located in Nolita, has a simple but delicious sounding Italian menu that caught our eye when we walked by in the afternoon. When we arrived, we noticed that the restaurant [read more →]

Restaurants: Thai Terminal

Matt and I ate at one of our standbys in New York last night: Thai Terminal. It’s embarrassing how often I ate there back when I lived on that 12th street block, but it was so nice to be back. They have really fresh, reliable, and tasty food. I honestly wouldn’t have ever tried this [read more →]

Restaurants: Motorino

I love Motorino. I got really spoiled when I lived next door. As far as I’m concerned, their pizza is perfect. The crust is chewy but lightly charred and quality of the toppings is top notch. I was practically giddy when we went back there last weekend. We went for lunch on Sunday, which is [read more →]

Restaurants: Locanda Vini e Olii

  Matt and I didn’t feel like wandering too far for dinner last night, so we checked out a little Italian restaurant called Locando Vini e Olii a couple of blocks from his apartment. The restaurant seemed full, but we were able to get a table in about 10 minutes without a reservation. When we [read more →]

Choice Greene

I’m spending the day kind of playing around with my blog while Matt is working/GRE studying/trumpeting, so I thought I’d check out some of the places in his neighborhood while I’m at it. I went to Choice Greene when I was here about a month ago and had an over-priced, kind of funky tasting egg [read more →]

Restaurants: Olio

Do you ever get so behind a restaurant that you don’t want to admit that anything else could possibly be as good? I spend a lot of time at Motorino, a pizza restaurant that is conveniently located next door to my current apartment in the East Village. They turn the simplest ingredients into masterpiece pizzas. [read more →]

Restaurants: Momofuku Noodle Bar

Since I moved to New York last month, everyone has told me that I need to try the pork belly buns at one of the Momofuku restaurants. Fortunately, Noodle Bar and Ssäm bar are both within walking distance of new place. My roommate Jess is one of the many who have gushed about them, so [read more →]

Restaurants: Otto

My friends Jess, Sarah, and Katie and I went to Otto on the night before the Santa Margherita event. Otto is one of Mario Batali’s restaurants, but it’s actually pretty casual and quite cheap (especially for New York). It’s basically part wine bar and part pizzeria. The menu is designed for sharing, comprising of a [read more →]

Restaurants: Penelope

We arrived in New York the afternoon before the Santa Margherita Great Taste Challenge in time for a late lunch. Thankfully, we had done some research beforehand; we were so hungry after we landed that we probably would have gone to the first place we saw! We had decided on a little restaurant called Penelope, [read more →]

Well – I didn’t win, but had an incredible day at the finals. They were held last Thursday at the Bon Appétit Supper Club and Café in New York City, which is a “pop-up” restaurant that’s held in a different location for one week every year. They have chef demos during the day and feature [read more →]
