My Day on a Food Network Shoot

This past week, I got to live out my wildest childhood dream as a contestant for an upcoming show on Food Network!!!!!!!! WHAT is my life?! I was cast to participate in the “proof of concept” for the show, which will be shown to the Food Network execs to see if they’re going to eventually…

Riverpark

The best gifts always come in the form of food! An NYC Restaurant Week meal of my choice, a belated Chanukah gift from my mom, was obviously the perfect present for a foodie like me! Restaurant Week is such a wonderful thing. During this time, loads of very fancy NYC restaurants make fine dining a…

Franchia

I figure I should get in all the vegan eats I can while I’m home in the states before I leave in a month to study abroad in Argentina… a country known for its steak… which I intend to eat A LOT of… Sorry veggie-loving friends… While I personally am not vegan, I have a strong…

Thaimee Box

Purple noodles. Magic, color changing purple noodles. What a crazy world we live in! I was thrilled to finally try these mystical magical noodles at Thaimee Box this past week, and they taste even better than they look! Thaimee Box is a little Thai restaurant in the East Village, with sister restaurants at Ngam around…

Miso Teriyaki Seitan Sandwiches

I’ve been in love with The Cinnamon Snail since I first encountered this insanely wonderful vegan food truck at Red Bank, New Jersey’s weekly farmer’s market. I’m a true fan who has followed their amazing journey as they blossomed from local vegan secret to the hottest food truck on the East Coast!     After…

Nizza

Hey there foodies! I’m back!!!! Wooooh! Promising this winter break will be filled with LOTS of yumminess! First stop: PASTA. Nizza is a wonderful little Italian restaurant which I found on–you guessed it– Instagram. When we sat down, I was telling Jenna, my foodie companion for the evening, about how I’d seen Nizza on some…

Silvana

I’ve been working right down the street from an absolute gem the whole summer and of course I didn’t find this spot until my second to last week… Silvana is a contemporary Middle Eastern restaurant in West Harlem, and it’s pretty much everything I could ever want and more in a café. Fantastic (and inexpensive)…

Rocking Horse Cafe

My favorite request in the world is, “Hey so can we get dinner in the city one night after work at one of your NYC foodie bucket list places please and thanks,” so thanks for that to my dear friend, Jenna. We chose Rocking Horse Cafe, and let me tell you, we chose wisely. Rocking…

Overnight Oats

Hey, it’s been a really long time since I’ve posted a recipe, hasn’t it? I’ve always wanted to try an overnight oats recipe 1) because they’re trendy and you can put them in Mason jars and I am a slave to the #aesthetic and 2) because I am Lazy with a capital L (which conveniently…

Ippudo Ramen & Spot Dessert Bar

  My friend Melissa’s Snapchat story always seems to have a steaming bowl of some variant of Asian soup on it, and I’ve decided that’s the kind of life I’d like to live, so of course I had to try Ippudo Ramen, knownas the best ramen place in the city! To begin, we shared two…

Motorino

Some may call me a pizza snob, and I won’t deny it. Now, let me begin by saying that really great pizza is not difficult to come by in NYC, but really special pizza is a whole other story. Let me tell you about some really special pizza. My cousin, Danielle, just moved to a…

My Summer in Connecticut

Bagels, pizza, diner food, acai bowls… My oh my, how I have missed you! While I may have longed for my favorite Jersey fare while I was away, I definitely did enjoy the foodie finds I came across in Connecticut while I was staying there working on a show last month! Guided by my college…
