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.
Summer doesn’t officially start until tomorrow, but I’ve already been flaunting a healthy rosé flush for what feels like an eternity. Actually, it’s probably been since February, when I made my first foray to Napa. Stop numero uno: the impeccable Domaine Carneros for a sampler of their renowned sparkling wines. The setting was majestic, the staff could not have been more pleasant (no snooty wine snobs there!), and I’m sad to say I can’t remember which bubbly I found most delicious—they were all that good! It didn’t hurt, either, that we paired them with Midnight Moon, one of my favorite cheeses.
Cheers to keeping the rosé flowing all summer long—and beyond!
Of course a girl from Wisconsin would fall in love with a San Franciscan deli named Cheese Plus. They’re serving up the best turkey sandwich I’ve ever encountered, only made better when enjoyed in Lafayette Park.
The Butler and the Chef was repeatedly recommended to me as the most underrated brunch in San Francisco. It’s tucked away in sleepy South Park but the masses have found it; we waited out our table for a good while. The sunny patio perch, bright mimosas, and French fare well made up for it, though. And who doesn’t love a restaurant that brings out truffles with the check. It’s never too early for chocolate in my world.
