I went to a networking Lunch at Opia yesterday. When work pays for food, I shouldn’t complain but my duty is to tell the world where to eat.
It was a pre-fixed package that started with a Ceaser salad. I didn’t eat it so I won’t comment. Then we had a choice between 3 main courses. […]

Hell No! We Want O!

Wednesday, July 18, 2007

That’s my “we want oxygen” / bring it to the streets rant, what do you think? It’s about the CO2-packaged meat that’s been around for a bit; and it’s time it goes away. I was really happy to read an article over at Slate about this issue. Particularly, because they have a copy of a […]

The Best White Balsamic

Wednesday, July 18, 2007

Thanks to Anon’s comment, we were informed that O & Co. O & Co. (in GCT) carries a new White Balsamic with Oregano. For some reason, the producer felt the need to add caramel coloring, but it works. It is the best white balsamic I have ever tasted!
If you don’t know how to make salad […]

Humor Break

Not that I haven’t picked on Subway enough, but this is so true, and hilarious. Why doesn’t Subway tessellate their cheese!?

Let’s Not Rendez Vous at This Cafe

Monday, July 16, 2007

From the outside looking in, Le Rendez-Vous Cafe Le Rendez-Vous Cafelooks like a pizza joint with a bar on the side. When you get to the back, it turns into a Middle Eastern theme. The menu includes a mix of Italian (wierd) and Middle Eastern foods and Hookah.
The 5 of us decided to split 3 […]

Markt Moves

Monday, July 16, 2007

As we were driving to Kasi’s (Lon’s sister) yesterday, we passed Markt Markton Sixth Avenue, a pleasant surprise. Someone had recommended their fries to me when this restaurant had their meatpacking district location. Before, I got around to going, they closed. They have now re-opened on Sixth Avenue so it looks like I’ll get another […]

Race to Cilantro

Saturday, July 14, 2007

I ran the Naples – New York Park to Park race this morning in Central Park as part of Team in Training. Lon and Ice came to cheer me on in my second race ever. This was my first experience ever in grabbing water while running and while I did manage to hydrate, I also […]

New Yeah Shanghai Deluxe

Saturday, July 14, 2007

Last night we hunted for our dinner. Unfortunately, the hunt didn’t take place with spears in hand, through the forest; but rather with Vindigo (a foodie must-have) in hand, through the murky streets of Chinatown. Along for the hunt were our new friends Kate & Jesse. Jessica and I remember a wonderful place where we […]

Chicago isn’t Tasting Too good

Friday, July 13, 2007

For the longest time I’ve wanted to take a trip to the famed Taste of Chicago — a massive, two-week, outdoor eating fest that takes place annually in the windy city’s Grant Park Grant Park: Taste of Chicago. Yesterday, at least 120 people, and reports of up to 400, were sickened by one booth’s herb, […]

My Favorite Fruit Stand

Friday, July 13, 2007

Of course I love loading up on produce in Chinatown or Flushing, but since I can’t always make the trip, I frequently buy fruit from a fruit stand Best Fruit Stand on University Place, in front of L’Annam. It’s twice the size of most fruit stands in Manhattan and offers better prices than most too. […]
