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…

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…

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…

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…
