Bar 89

Sunday, April 30, 2006

In celebration of Stephen completing his 6th actuarial exam, we went to Bar 89 because Lon and Kasi (both of whom had been there many times) recommended the burgers and waffle fries. Everyone was disappointed. The food quality had gone down and service was awful. Totally not worth the 45 minute wait. (They […]

Mermaid Inn

Thursday, April 27, 2006

Highly recommended! Everything we had at Mermaid Inn was delicious, perfect portion sizes, and great service.
Service starts with 2 types of bread sticks. We started with an oyster and bacon chowder. We’re so used to getting heavy creamy chowders these days that the image of chowder in our minds is a thick […]

Fresh Direct

Monday, April 24, 2006

I’ve ordered from FreshDirect before and have never really had a major problem. One time, one of the items was wrong….like mustard instead if baking soda but….generally if you know which items to buy, it can be a pretty good deal.
After this Sunday though, I would really have to think twice before […]

Asia Grill

Monday, April 24, 2006

I was sick all weekend and when I’m sick, I usually want pho (a Vietnamese oxtail noodle soup). It’s the perfect sick food in my mind. I’ve been staying at Lon’s apt while my apt is being renovated and the only Vietnamese nearby is Asia Grill. They had pho so I […]

I was exhausted Fri night so we just went to the Patsy’s near Lon’s apt on 60th St. It was packed as most of them usually are so we had an appetizer at the bar while we waited for a table. The fried calamari is pretty standard.
After we were seated, we ordered a […]

Zucchero e Pomodori

Friday, April 21, 2006

It was a beautiful night last night so the plan was to eat outdoors. We walked up 2nd Ave and looked at several menus. When we were finally decided on a restaurant, Kasi and Stephen (Lon’s sister and brother-in-law) appeared out of no where. Actually, they just walked out of the bar […]

Shila is that new place in Ktown with the silver exterior. The restaurant is 3 floors and the decor is pretty typical of the newer Korean restaurants. Lon and I both noticed the chairs and liked them. As soon as you sit, you’re given a bowl of thick red bean/sticky rice […]

Bruschetta, Broccoli, and Bolognese

Sunday, April 16, 2006

Check out the pics from last night’s dinner: Bruschetta, Broccoli, Bolognese….say it 3 times fast! =P
Lots more pics on Flickr.

I was invited to celebrate Passover with Lon’s family in Long Island so I hopped the smelly LIRR and headed all the way to Central Islip. I have not been that far from Manhattan since my cousin’s wedding last year but it was worth it for the 3 or more hours of […]

Houston’s and La Salle

Wednesday, April 12, 2006

We went to the Houston’s on Park Ave, near 27th St. I like the look of the place and the couch seats are great.
We started off with their famous spinach dip which is delivered nice and hot with warm chips. It’s so yummy. The salsa and sour cream that comes with it is […]
