Milk & Honey

Sunday, March 21, 2010

Milk & Honey 134 Eldridge Street, New York, NY 10002 is dark and private, hidden on a gloomy and half-deserted street, even by Lower East Side standards. I was glad I was being hosted by a member ($300 annual membership) because this small narrow place can’t fit many and members get dibs […]

Raines Law Room

Thursday, March 4, 2010

Raines Law Room 48 West 17th Street, New York, NY 10011 is for those who value personal space. Here, you don’t crowd around a bar. There is no bar in the traditional sense. They have a “kitchen” where mixologists make your drinks. (No food is made.) You must be seated by a […]

Employees Only

Saturday, February 27, 2010

I went to
Employees Only 510 Hudson Street, New York, NY 10014 in that snow storm Thursday night, thinking it would be empty. It was not. The long bar is packed with people and I was a little jealous of those that got to watch and interact with the mixologists. They were […]

Coffee Milk Tea

Wednesday, February 17, 2010

Coffee Milk Tea, called Yuen Yang (Ying Yang) in Chinese, is simply what it sounds like: coffee, milk, and tea. The coffee vs. tea debate is as common as the vanilla vs. chocolate, with fervent devotees on both sides. As hard as I’ve tried, I don’t favor one over the other and drink both coffee […]

Le Bernardin

Saturday, January 2, 2010

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 […]

We were invited to attend Cook.Eat.Drink.Live, yet another food event. It seems like these are popping up every other week these days (in NYC). Held at The Tunnel/La Venue, there was a room for wine tasting, a long corridor of food tastings, and two stages with scheduled demos. There was also one room that seemed […]

The Bazaar by Jose Andres

Wednesday, September 9, 2009

If you’re dining in Los Angeles, you need to read My Last Bite. Jo knows all the best restaurants in the area. That’s how I knew about
The Bazaar at Jose Andres 465 South La Cienega Boulevard, Los Angeles, CA 90048, which was the highlight of the Southern California portion of our […]

Cold Brewed Iced Coffee

Saturday, August 22, 2009

It’s time for Weekend Shout-out and this week I have Amanda Mae at Mae Bird to thank for a wonderful Saturday morning. See, I’m a little addicted to Iced Coffee. If you watch my twitter, you’ll notice Iced Coffee just about every morning. In the summer, taking a stroll with my dog, Ice, and sipping […]

Wine Night Series: August 2009

Saturday, August 8, 2009

Here’s the first edition of our Wine Night Series (besides the preview):
We had a 2007 Robert Mondavi Fume Blanc. Like many of the Robert Mondavi wines I’ve had, this is a perfect safety wine. It’s a great beginner wine as well, being very easy to drink, light and fruity.

We had two favorites, with two new […]

Ginger Spiked Peach Lassi

Monday, August 3, 2009

Several nights ago, Lon and I stopped in at a liquor store looking for something else, but ended up with a bottle of Stone’s Original Ginger ( Ginger Flavored Currant Wine).  Having no idea what it was, we thought the ginger would be nice with some carrot cake we had lying around.

We tried it over […]
