East 48th Street Market — Italian Beef

East 48th Street Market’s Italian Beef (The #26)

Since our very first visit, we’ve loved East 48th Street Market. Today, it’s just as great as it ever was. As a matter of fact, we probably love it even more today. It’s a seriously sentimental all-time favorite.

Éclat Chocolate

Éclat Chocolate

What’s better than a box of chocolate on Valentine’s Day? A surprise box (or two) of chocolates that arrive with the promise of more surprises yet to come.

The Peruvian Nacional Traditional Truffles

It just doesn’t get any better […]

Ink & Elm

Ink & Elm

Ink and Elm is a beautiful restaurant that welcomes you from both front and back. This entrance offers a reprieve from the cold on the backside to access their shared lot. Sharing the space with Bad Dog Taqueria, Rise & Dine, and a little Starbucks […]

1910 Public House

Fried Pickles

Lightly breaded with a crisp, flaky batter, these sweet and spicy pickles were a great way to start our meal.

Lazy Magnolia Southern Pecan Brown Ale (And, a nice glass of Sangiovese)

Yebo Restaurant & Bar

Bunny Chow

That sounds so much nicer than chicken liver curry with peri-peri in a South African bread bowl. Or, then again, does it? No matter. It doesn’t really matter what you call it. We want to eat it. This was a mildly spiced, rich and creamy curry […]

Americana Huckleberry Soda

Americana Huckleberry Soda

Finally, a soda that tastes like what it claims to be. This soda has a true huckleberry (or, wild blueberry) flavor. At 160 calories, it is quite sweet. But, the blend of huckleberry and elderberry give this soda real sweet/tart berry flavor with a lovely […]


Fentiman’s Shandy & Mandarin Orange Jigger

We both loved the Shandy. And, the Mandarin Orange Jigger was “interesting”.

Lotsa Potato, Little Tuna

It’s a good thing we like a good dose of heat because this Tunisian Tuna sandwich was swimming in […]

Varasano’s Pizzeria — Brunch

The Half Moon Dolce (Fontina, Capicola, Dates, Walnuts, Honey & Minced Rosemary)

This pie was practically begging for a glass (or bottle) of wine. Sadly, we were too early.

Note to self: Delay all future brunch meals til noon or later.
