Grom Gelato

[Translate] Grom opened the past Saturday. Due to the extensive press coverage from The NY Times, NY Magazine, amongst the plethora, it’s too tempting for me to pass up anything related to gelato. My mind is screaming, “Why aren’t you eating there yet?!” So I finally went there today. Get ready for a creamy, sugar rush…because I did. I arrived there at 12:45 PM and they already have a line! Grom with a line of people (more…)

Uninspired Week

[Translate] I know some of you are wondering why I am I not updating or writing my a post this week at all? That’s because it’s an uninspiring week of food. Quite sad I have to say, partly due to the fact that I’m stressed with schoolwork (it doesn’t really end until May 21st – my only first and only day of finals, argh) and the nice weather in New York really prevents me from eating a lot. The latter argument is strange and probably hard for some of you to understand, but when the weather’s getting warmer somehow I’m..

An "Artful" Lunch at the Modern Bar Room

[Translate] This is arguably the most expensive lunch I ever had. Period.

Anyways, I went to Landmarc three times (including the earlier post when it opened on the second day) and counting now. The second time I went to Landmarc was the day after I wrote about Landmarc the first time. In other words I went there the third day of their opening. I went there for breakfast but I ended up ordering from their lunch menu (which is available during the..

Morning Noshings at Bouchon and Agoraphobia(?) at Bryant Park

[Translate] Ever since Saturday, I’ve been having some morning noshings at Bouchon Bakery. I know…you all hate me writing about Thomas Keller’s cafe but really, where can I go that has tasty pastries that doesn’t look and taste like crap and it’s really close to my campus? Just to blab all about it in one shot instead of breaking it down so much, for Saturday and Monday I had their Chocolate Cherry Scone ($3.25), Caramel Nut Tart ($7.25), and a Chocolate Praline Pound Cake ($4.75). Yeah…it’s all sugary, buttery, carby goodness here. Chocolate Cherry Scone…glossy (more…)
