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.

Could there be a more New Orleans meal than this? Softshell crab—over pasta, asparagus, ham, and lemon—and beignets, served with salted caramel and chocolate sauce that we scraped clean with our spoons. It’s all from Coquette, a newish Uptown bistro and wine bar that was the most frequently recommended restaurant in all of my pollings. Even Matthew McConaughey is a fan.
Boy did we feast. House-infused vodkas, lots of seafood (I learned that it’s okay to have a crab starter and entree), a coffee liquor after dinner drink. The menu changes nitely, and not only do you taste the innovation, but you feel it, too, from the excited young staff. It was a delicious meal, and heading Uptown was a nice change of pace from the downtown chaos.
