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.

Brunching dairy-free isn’t always fun, but it has caused me to rediscover something wonderful: brunch salads! Last weekend’s beaut is from one of my favorite New York restaurants, Citrus. Buffalo Natural Chicken Breast Caesar Salad with romaine, celery, avocado, cherry tomatoes, croutons, and caesar dressing.
Happy weekend brunching! Hoping I get a little of this action.

Levain Bakery, Upper West Side: NYC’s other best cookie

Thanks to my severe cookie fetish, people are always telling me to try Levain Bakery. I finally found myself there this weekend. The rumors are true: these cookies are holy-moly-nom-alicious. 

First off, this isn’t your over cute-sified dessert shoppe. It’s just a tiny downstairs bakery counter with a couple stools. Secondly, cookies do sell out. I got there around 1 on Saturday and there were less than a dozen cookies left. The double chocolate peanut butter chip was prime for the taking. 

The $4 cookie chunk didn’t look especially appetizing, but inside, ooey gooey, warm, half cookie/half brownie filling awaited me. This place is definitely giving Momofuku Milk Bar a run for its “best cookie" money.
