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…

Eataly

I have seen foodie paradise. It’s real, it’s glorious, and it’s called Eataly. Currently owned by Mario Batali alongside Lidia and Joe Bastianich, (just a handful of Italian idols in the world of cookery), this food hall in the Flatiron District of NYC is (not surprisingly) an absolute dream. Yes, I said food ~hall~ because…

by CHLOE. & Doughnut Plant

Hey, long time, no blog! Let me tell you about a pretty amazing day. My ever so lovely friend Julia and I lived our dream of seeing Regina Spektor live in concert! This was a day we’d both longed for since freshman year of high school, when we’d play Samson on repeat 50 times and…

My Trip to Israel! (Part Two)

Ready for even more yummy foods from my trip to Israel?! Read on… Akko Our visit to the Arab Market in the city of Akko led to lots of glorious food discoveries! Like hummus! Hummus in Israel is very different from American hummus in the best of ways… Though those little Sabra hummus cups that come…

My Trip to Israel! (Part One)

I’m writing to you from good old Jerz, but my heart (and my taste buds) are in the absolutely beautiful land of Israel. In my mind, I’m still walking through the mystical streets of Tzfat, navigating crowded and colorful markets, floating in the crystal clear Dead Sea, and looking up at the stars in the Negev. I’m…

The Hummus House

I’m heading back to ‘Berg so very soon, and I cannot wait!!! So while I not-so-patiently sit here daydreaming of picnics beside Victor’s Lament, fun nights out with the most wonderful people, loads of auditions, a capella love, and late-night runs to GQ, I’ll tell you about my mid-summer visit to my favorite place in…

54 Below & Milk Bar

A few weeks ago, I had the most magical night– at Laura Osnes’s Broadway Disney Princess Party at 54 Below in NYC! If you’re a theatre person, you know that Laura Osnes is basically a goddess, and if you know me, you probably know that she’s my idol. The Broadway Disney Princess Party is a…
