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...

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...
Madison Ave &, E 23rd St, New York, NY 10010, USA
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.

There are a lot of ice cream trucks in NYC. Only one started out as the Big Gay Ice Cream Truck but became a brick-and-mortar Big Gay Ice Cream shop. Whether you flag down the truck somewhere in Midtown or wait in line at the shop on E 7th in the...

This West Village "speakeasy" was a great choice for celebrating a 30th birthday. Hidden behind a neon psychic sign and very intimidating bouncer, Employees Only has an impressive creative cocktail list. I recommend the West Side and the Ginger...

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...

I love living in New York for many reasons. The High Line Park is one of them. As some random 'free things in NYC list' put it, 'How did they manage to squeeze so much awesomeness in such a small space?' In New York city no less! The elevated park...

When I was introduced to soup dumplings by a NYC friend in Chinatown, I was immediately intrigued. They're a strange experience the first time, the sort of food that has to be played with a little before it can be eaten. Even while I was eating, a...
