I was recently invited to a really impressive press dinner at Chimichurri Grill East. I went in expecting a typical steak house/ grill affair but ended up with a fine dining experience that I am still savouring.
Andrew Carmellini is such a star chef in my eyes! I love Locanda Verde and now am equally in love with Little Park, his ingredient driven, seasonal restaurant at the Smyth hotel in TriBeCa.
Guan Fu Sichuan in Flushing has for me, redefined Sichuan cuisine completely. The words “Guan Fu” literally translates to “Sichuan White House” showcasing a cuisine that was only accessible to the nobility in China. The owners Li Boru and Xue Wei had a vision of bringing these flavors historically enjoyed by the Chinese aristocracy, here to our plates in New York City – in its most authentic form.
Ramen is all the rage in NYC that one tends to ignore the other great noodles that’s Japanese cuisine proffers. A good bowl of udon can be just as satisfying and is so much harder to find.
Only in Flushing could you enter a flower shop and grab a cup of the most delicious tofu to go for just $1.50.
Brunch might just be one of my favorite meals and nothing thrills me more than finding just that perfect spot to spend an afternoon to luxuriate in.
Ever feel like you want to enjoy a bowl of Ramen in total solitude?
Gelato on a stick – what a unique concept.
Pie and Mash along with Sweeny Todd sounds like an odd combination but it is one of the coolest things you could be doing right now in New York City.
