I Sodi

Thursday, October 8, 2009

Early last week, I made reservations for
I Sodi 105 Christopher Street, New York, NY 10014, purely because it was an editors pick in New York Magazine. I usually spend more time researching and reading, but time is something I’m very short on these days. Then, I went to Gottino on Thursday […]

Chef Jody Williams Shows Me How to Steam Scramble Eggs

Sunday, October 4, 2009

When I raved about the scrambled eggs at Gottino, Chef Jody Williams saw my post and offered to give me a tutorial on her amazing Steamed Scrambled Eggs. If that’s not a food blogger’s dream come true, I don’t know what is.

Salumeria Rossi

Monday, September 28, 2009

Salumeria Rossi 283 Amsterdam Avenue, New York, NY 10023 is a restaurant and meat counter. The dinner we had there was forgettable, and already forgotten, but the salty meats is where they shine. It’s cheaper to take it to-go anyway and that is what you should definitely do. Select three or more […]

There’s been a lot of press about
Keste 271 Bleeker Street, New York, NY 10014….

We went to
Scarpetta 355 West 14th Street, New York, NY 10014 for Lon’s birthday. It’s just blocks from our apartment so that we could roll our stuffed selves home. The simple earth tones, high ceilings, and sky light make a comfortable atmosphere. However, the mirrors looked like they had seatbelts on. […]

While I was waiting for the rest of my party to arrive, I sat in the bar area in the front of
Convivio 45 Tudor City Place, New York, NY 10017 and decided I don’t like red colored restaurants. The similar feel this had to Strip House and Giorgio’s of Gramercy (both […]

I walked by this teeny little place, called Dieci Dieci, while walking Ice (Jack Russell Terrier) one day and I saw some things in the window that peeked my interest, a new tapas menu at $5 each (in addition to their regular menu) and a list of wines for $5 a glass or $20 per […]

After being rained out twice for some wine, cheese, and charcuterie in our backyard, we headed over to Peasant Peasant with Angie, Sara, and Winnie.  Since it was also Jessica’s birthday (+/- a few days) we celebrated that as well.
Peasant seems small from the outside, but inside, it opens wider towards the backs.  The concrete […]

We met Shruti and Ekta for a pretty nice lunch at Bocca Bocca on Friday but forgot our camera! Ugh, you have no idea how mad I was at myself. I think I went a little crazy, tried not to sulk too publicly, and then decided to try some pics with my cell phone. So, […]

Da Andrea

Saturday, March 21, 2009

Maurizio closed and Da Andrea Da Andrea opened up in it’s place. I actually remembered going to Da Andrea, at their former West Village location, many years ago (about 7 or 8 years, I think). I couldn’t be certain ( I have a terrible memory, which is the original reason I started this blog) but […]
