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.

When I asked my server her preference between two ramens, she said they were as different as salad and butter. 
You know I ordered butter.

I used to smoke, but then I stopped. I don’t drink that much. But sweets are another thing. My weakness is the chocolate-cookie sandwich at Jack’s. If I can go seven days without eating a whole cake, I will reward myself with seven cakes.

No matter how much you stuffed yourself silly during the holidays, there’s always room for brunch—and all of its accoutrements.
