Pierre Loti Wine Bar

Wednesday, July 22, 2009

Pierre Loti Wine Bar 53 Irving Place, New York, NY 10079 gave me mixed signals. When I asked for wine recommendations, our waiter didn’t seem to want to make suggestions. On the flip side, my friend, Sheryl, dropped and broke her phone and our waiter came over with a flashlight to help […]

The Ten Bells

Saturday, July 11, 2009

Angie and I met at
The Ten Bells 247 Broome Street, New York, NY 10002 last night and I’m a little torn about this place. It has a cool vibe, with a U-shaped bar and no sign outside. Even though the inside is dark, I got a seat near the street where […]

Angie and I met at Zampa 306 West 13th Street, New York, NY 10014 early (6:30pm) to make sure we could secure a seat since they don’t give reservations for parties of two. We decided to sit at the bar, a cleverly designed one that zig-zagged across the length of the space. It gives […]


Sunday, May 10, 2009

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.

Although Lon and I are not drinkers, I was planning on checking out Webster’s Wine Bar Webster’s Wine Bar and having a glass of wine, but my cold was still bothering me so we stuck to food.

Danny Brown Wine Bar & Kitchen

Monday, May 19, 2008

I’m so happy to have found Danny Brown Wine Bar & Kitchen Danny Brown Wine Bar & Kitchen by my parents house in Forest Hills. The somewhat eclectic menu seems to take French and Italian inspirations and just focuses on making simple food correctly. The formula pleased us all (my mom, dad, brother, Lon, and […]

Tarallucci e Vino

Friday, July 6, 2007

I’ve walked by Tarallucci e Vino Tarallucci e Vino a couple of times and always intended on trying it. I had forgotten about it and then my friend Sarah suggested it for lunch. We got a table outside, where we could enjoy the New York summer and catch up on the latest about each other.
We […]
