About

Eating my way through the Big Apple and around the world.

Always in favor of extraordinary flavor versus saving a few calories, I’m constantly seeking the best restaurants, recipes, and random little food finds. This blog chronicles my discoveries, most of which are located in New York City, the foodie heaven I am fortunate to call home.

I am an editor at Zagat, but all opinions on this blog are mine and have nothing to do with my employer.

I take my photos with a point-and-shoot Canon PowerShot SD850. Which goes to show that if you're passionate about photography but can't afford fancy camera equipment, you can still take quality photos.

I didn’t think it was possible for me to be any more obsessed with Graze in Madison…until we stopped by their outdoor farmer’s market counter. Feast your eyes on this: an adult Toaster Strudel, if you will. Flaky, warm pastry stuffed with ham, gooey Swiss and herbs. Washed down with their insane Magic Coffee, and I’d say I’m dangerously close to needing the restaurant to file a restraining order against me.
