The fried noodles with seafood and vegetables from Congee Village comprise this little bowl of heaven. I love stepping into a restaurant and realizing that most of the customers are people from the country where the restaurants cuisine comes from....

Momofuko Noodle Bar is the creation of the sometimes controversial Korean chef David Chang. This restauranteur has taken hold of several blocks in the East Village where you'll find a handful of his enterprises including the noodle bar and milk...

Little Italy, New York, NY 10013, USA
I live in New York, but the city never ceases to surprise me. I saw this fellow walking along the streets of Little Italy. Stroll through Little Italy and see what bewilderment awaits you. Oh, and grab a cannoli. I personally like the...

Coney Island, Brooklyn, NY, USA
This picture is too perfect for February, and it is. It was taken last summer at Coney Island, Brooklyn New York. Weather has been gorgeous in January. I am keeping my finger crossed that this would go on till spring, and then summer for this...

Talk about "slow food!" Everything we picked out for our picnic-style dinner was aged...aged cheeses, aged meats, a bottle of 2008 red. I love knowing that months and years ago, someone in Italy was thoughtfully creating my dinner that I'd eat way...

'They' say Rome has the best gelato in Italy. Since I haven't been to every town in Italy, I can't confirm that. Neither, though, can I deny it because when I tasted the gelato at Gelateria del Teatro while in Roma I definitely experienced...

This place features the best ramen noodles I've ever had. The broth is heavenly, the pork belly melts in your mouth, and the atmosphere is a rarely experienced mix of Japanese kitsch and New York hipster cool. This ramen haven is going on my...

I have to thank AFARer Barry Brown for a recommendation to al di là, a little Italian find in Park Slope. The food was exquisite. Certainly among my top American restaurant meals. Even the bread and butter exceeded expectation. The place has a...

Made with fresh ingredients, these are some of the best fast food burgers in the country! There's always a line but it is worth the wait! Their milkshake and frozen custards are also a must. Read More about my experience here.

Every Ramen shop in NYC has something different to offer. If they all offered the same Ramen it wouldn’t be interesting at all. Rai Rai Ken excels in the broth department. They have a particular seafood based broth that is very flavorful, and not...

The Momofuku pork buns are ALWAYS on my list of destinations whenever I go to New York City. The tender pork belly, sweet sauce and lightly pickled cucumbers create a great delicious and addictive combination!...

Third Rail Coffee. A simple black coffee never tasted so good. Literally stumbled into it after I got caught in a sudden thunderstorm and ran for cover. The tiny space encourages eavesdropping and the glass front invites people watching, but I...

My last three trips to NYC I’ve found myself at Elsa in the East Village. It’s one of those places you just always end up. Good cocktails and a really nice atmosphere makes it an easy stop. Thanks to my friend and NYC PR powerhouse Michelle Aselta...

One important piece of advice if you find yourself at the Dutch, the excellent restaurant from NYC's star chef Andrew Carmellini: Save room for dessert. Carmellini describes the food at his SoHo restaurant simply as "American." What does that mean...
