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.

Homemade strawberry balsamic pop-tart from Anarchy in a Jar at Smorgasburg. 
Only a few more weeks to get after it before the Smorg closes for the season. And yes, they’re open this weekend!

Comfort food, defined. 
Masa cakes, house-made chorizo, black beans, and poached eggs from The Brooklyn Star in Williamsburg. Quite possibly the heartiest brunch menu I have ever encountered, from original Momofuku chef Joaquin Baca.
