I have never been to Taipei. But after tasting a fresh grapefruit and green tea from CoCo Fresh Tea & Juice, I was ready to pack my bags and move. This juice company, based in Taiwan, is dedicated to serving the highest quality ingredients to its...

Participating in the Japanese tradition of hanami, or "flower viewing" at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden during springtime is one of the simplest pleasures I've had that didn't involve food. For four weeks, the Brooklyn Botanic Garden is home to pink...

When I think about Chinatown, I think about the noodle cart on Grand Street. I swear to God! Every time I hit up that cart I become the happiest person. This small order of noodles with peanut and soy sauce cost me an insignificant $1.50. Noodle...
Gramercy Park, New York, NY, USA
I needed a last minute reservation at a good restaurant around Gramercy Park and Casa Mono came through. Thanks to NYC native and restaurateur Michael Kassar on the recommendation. The Fideos with Clams and Chorizo seen above were killer! More at...

On weekends this place is dim sum heaven. I’m not talking about the “trendy” dim sum places that look pretty, but drill a hole in your pocket. Golden Unicorn is a family establishment! Go there on any given weekend and what you will find are...

New York City has so many great Italian restaurants but Morandi's has to be in my top 3, the meatballs might make you cry, they were so delicious! It's a super vibrant atmosphere, reservations can be tough to secure, but it lives up to the hype....
East 13th Street, 207 2nd Ave, New York, NY 10003, USA
I go to Momofuku Ssam Bar every time I'm in NY and free for Sunday brunch. It is worth all the hype it has garnered. Go with a large group and order many orders of the pork buns, which are more like Chinese tacos, stuffed with tender pork belly...
21 9th Ave, New York, NY 10014, USA
The rule of three suggests that things that come in threes are inherently more satisfying, I agree! This Catch dessert consists of three divine piles of deliciousness. We walked through the cobblestone roads, joined the bankers and tourists to...

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...

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...

I stumbled into Tartinery in my search for an art show in SOHO. Specializing in the tartine (an open faced sandwich popular in France) their imported bread, fresh ingredients, creative, and simple combinations make this a foodie's new favorite in...

Three Lives bookstore in the historic West Village caters to serious book-lovers. The individually owned store and its employees are warm and full of character—it feels like you wandered into your best friend’s (large) library in which...

A five-year restoration and renovation project transformed a factory on the Williamsburg waterfront, originally built in 1901, into the stylish but laid-back Wythe Hotel. This property has a distinct Brooklyn stamp, from the Brooklyn-made...
18 Cornelia St #1, New York, NY 10014, USA
Authentic, savory, seasonal Provencal bistro dishes. Warm and welcoming service from familiar faces. A cozy atmosphere in a jewel box of a dining room. These are the reasons why I have come back to Le Gigot again and again over the years. The...

Located atop The McKittrick Hotel—site of the immersive theater experience "Sleep No More"—Gallow Green is a beguiling outdoor space overgrown with flowers and vines that offers up views of the Hudson River and the High Line. It's as popular for...
