Colicchio & Sons: Tap Room; Interior
A few weeks ago, on a dreary, cold, and blustery, Thursday afternoon, I planned an early lunch for Restaurant Week with my two friends at Colicchio & Sons: Tap Room. I do admit I’m going on a streak eating at Tom Colicchio-owned restaurants for Restaurant Week [...]
Menu & Interior
Two weeks ago on a Friday night, I had dinner at Riverpark from the good things I’ve been hearing for the past few months in the food forums like Chowhound and Sam Sifton’s review at The NY Times. Curious about Executive Chef Sisha Ortúzar’s food, I thought it would [...]
My hot cider and the mob
I’ve remembered reading from The Feedbag about the insane line that people had to wait in order to get in during Restaurant Week. Well, I became one of those nut jobs except the good part was that the line wasn’t that long (I was the third [...]

Yep, we’re exploring into realm of haute Indian cuisine since what we’ve encounter in our pasts were heavy, greasy, fire breathing-spicy Indian food. We had high hopes for this place since I’ve [...]
Ah, Restaurant Week…so many choices (about 240, give or take) and within a time span of ten days. Lunch is $24.07 and dinner’s $35, which is relatively inexpensive for the high end restaurants, especially in Manhattan. Since it’s less than 1 1/2 weeks away, many ask readers ask me, “Where should I eat?” That’s [...]

The past Friday evening, I had dinner at the Bar Room at the Modern with Ariel.
Since I have arrived there earlier than he did, I took the time to take in the atmosphere and the vibe of this place since it is so different than what I have experienced for lunch the last [...]
