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.

OK NYC foodies, time to get serious about your New Year’s resolution to step up your dining game. A few tickets are still available for a private wine dinner with the head somm at Le Bernardin next Monday, hosted by Zagat. This is such an incredible opportunity/value. So proud to be a part of this project, and am obsessed with how this beautiful video turned out!

Check out these other awesome events happening soon in New York and Chicago.

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.
