100 Montaditos (NYC)

100 Montaditos is a Spanish restaurant chain that has multiple locations in Florida before this particular location in Bleecker Street in Manhattan has opened for about three months. What we liked about this restaurant is that it is a laid back atmosphere that if you want to eat in, you’d have to scout for any open tables in the back dining room and head back to the front to order your food and beverages. Their dining room is quite spacious and comfy with a huge skylight to let in lots of natural light. We started off with familiar yet delectable..

Mercedes-Benz 125th Anniversary Dinner at James Beard House

Outside the Beard House (with the red carpet), James Beard sign welcoming to the Mercedes-Benz dinner and the sexy SLS AMG Supercar Two nights ago, I was fortunate to be invited to Mercedes-Benz‘s 125th Anniversary Dinner at James Beard House. This intimate dinner (the guest list, as I was told, consisted of about 46 people) was cooked by previous James Beard Award winners: Chef Daniel Humm of Eleven Madison Park, Chef Dan Kluger of ABC Kitchen, Chef John Besh of Restaurant August, Chef Karen DeMasco of Locanda Verde and mixologist Julie Reiner of Lana Kai.

Cocktails at Pegu Club

I will complete the outing from two posts ago and will go to my Canadian weekend hopefully within a few days. Just bear with me about the latter; I’ll post up in a few days… Pegu’s entrance After having a surprisingly good meal at Kasadela an hour or so earlier, we walked from Alphabet City (it’s the further eastern part of East Village) to Pegu Club. Possibly we’re dying from dehydration or a heat stroke, we passed by their doors when we walked to this place. Pegu Club almost felt like it was an exclusive cocktail bar since the door..

Terroir Wine Bar and Desserts at the Dessert Truck

Terroir Several weeks ago, I had a light dinner with a bunch of girl friends, Giulia, Helen, and Sarah at Terroir. We figured going out to a funky, affordable wine bar that won’t break the bank since a few of us are still in school and we don’t want to go broke for one night of fun. (more…)
