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.

What Katie Ate

16 August 2012

Another day in Michigan, another magical meal. This one was from Martha’s Leelanau Table, an enchanting European-esque bistro in Suttons Bay. Maratha herself greeted us at the front door, wearing her signature red beret—very Parisian chic! After 20 years in the school food service industry, she opened this gourmet bungalow, complete with a whimsical garden patio, warm service, and incredible locally-driven cuisine. I devoured the artful three course tasting menu, which included a spicy watermelon gazpacho drizzled with creme fraiche, sauteed whitefish dusted with sesame seeds, and quite possibly the most beautiful thing I have ever laid eyes on—a big slice of We Be Jammin’ Lemon Cake with late harvest strawberry jam, lemon curd, and homemade strawberry ice cream. The cake is even more breathtaking once you learn it’s gluten-free. Magic, indeed.
