I realize that this is a blog about East Village, NYC food, but I do sometimes post from other areas, such as Brooklyn, etc. So why, you might ask, am I reviewing a seafood restaurant in Denver, Colorado? Well, because I love the food there & make a point of going at least once every [...]
I’ve been posting quite a bit about Goat Town (511 East 5th Street between Avenue A & B) in the past few months because I really would like to see the restaurant do well. I’ll admit that the food is not ‘knock your socks off’ amazing, but there are a few dishes that they do [...]
After the awesome New Year’s Eve dinner (review here) I had at Goat Town (511 East 5th Street between Avenue A & B), I knew that I had to go back to check out the regular menu. I recently found out that Gotham is Anglo-Saxon for Goat Town, so I’m guessing that that’s where the [...]
I’m never one to shy away from trying a new restaurant (unless it’s out of my comfort zone –I’m talking to you Upper West Side!), so when I got an email from Tasting Table about a Late Brunch they were sponsoring along with Stella Artois, I jumped at the chance.

It took me about 22 years of living in NYC to finally make it out to Coney Island & when I did, I headed straight for Ruby’s (1213 Riegelmann Boardwalk). This place takes ‘Dive Bar’ to a whole new level & throws in a side of Coney Island Boardwalk & sea views. Mismatched furniture, a [...]
It’s really hard to find good seafood (particularly oysters), but we’re pretty blessed here in the East Village. One of my favorites is Mermaid Inn (96 2nd Avenue between 5th & 6th Streets). They have another location in the UWS & an Oyster Bar in Greenwich Village as well.
I recently went to Desnuda (122 East 7th Street btwn A & 1st Avenue) yesterday with a bunch of friends. We had seen the gigantic $1 Oysters sign outside so were very excited (obviously). The place is pretty nice, it used to be the old Bourgeois Pig & you can tell that they put a [...]« go back
