Restaurant Week and Vacation…

Edit (6/26/08, 7:45 PM): No more people needed for Restaurant Week, thanks for reading though! But you may certainly suggest me places to eat in Toronto or Niagara Falls.


Edit (6/26/08): Ok, since some of you already responded a bit later than I’ve wanted/imagined, I made reservations to Gramercy Tavern, Eleven Madison Park, Del Posto, and Le Cirque.

For the first two (Gramercy and EMP), I will not change it since these two places tend to be booked that I can’t change it. As for Del Posto (it’s lunch for this place), I’m still open to have people eat with me here. For Le Cirque, I’m not adding people since I have a few friends here and a reader.



Hi Readers!

As most of you (the local New Yorkers and the visiting foodies alike) are probably aware of Restaurant Week, during July 21-July 25 and July 28-August 1st. Yeah, I’m obsessed with this bi-annual event since it means cheaper expensive food. Contradictory, no?

I know this is a long shot but I’m asking if any of you want to eat out with lunch or dinner with me at the following places:

  • Eleven Madison Park (lunch)
  • Tabla (lunch; I’m going for the 30th)
  • Del Posto or Chanterellle (lunch)
  • Le Cirque (dinner; I’m shooting for a 6:30 PM reservation on Friday, Aug. 1st)

We are paying our own way, it’s just for us to meet and to experience the food and the environs as well. If you’re interested, just e-mail me.

On a different note, I’m going to vacation during the 4th of July weekend. Well, a brief one to Niagara Falls and Toronto, driving all the way there from NYC. It’s suicide driving for 8 1/2 hours, but it’s cheaper than a train ticket. Anyway, do any of you have bakery or food suggestions that I should go to? I do have a few in mind but I just wanna hear your suggestions. This particular one, you should comment below, not send me an e-mail unless you feel like it, which I’m happy with either.


I shoot, eat, and drink. My full time job is a hospital administrator. Moonlighting as a freelance photographer and food and travel writer.

    Kathyrn: I hear ya. Despite the fact that I didn’t love my experience last year, I did want to try Cafe Boulud again. It helps that it’s just a few blocks away from where I work.

    I have a like/dislike feelings with this year’s list that I have a few repeats. :/

  2. the Ace Bakery in Toronto and if u are there July 8 my daughter and her sketch comedy troupe is on at the Rivoli Theatre on Queen Street….u will love Toronto

    In Toronto I always go to E-On for Chinese
    Recently went to a place called 5th Eementt and anothe place called Centro Restaurant & Lounge

    Niagara Falls…aside from the tourist traps there isn’t much….
    but if you go a few miles into a town called St. Catharines there is a great Korean place called Duru and a yummy Greek place called Joe Feta’s…

    Hi as for Niagara Falls-

    I would have pizza at La Hacienda( nothing fancy but great pizza). for dessert I would head to Lewiston ( 5 min drive) for Hibbards frozen custasrd. Homemade and super rich and creamy!

    F. Pepper: I thought about that but I changed my mind since their menu is severely limited that it doesn’t have anything close to what they normally serve or what they’re known for.
