Russ & Daughters, the 100 year old Lower East Side appetizing landmark, will be featured in Julie Cohen’s documentary Sturgeon Queens will air on PBS this fall & make the festival circuit beginning in May.  Check out the trailer via The Braiser. I haven’t yet had a chance to review Russ & Daughters, but it […]

East Village Eats Tasting Tour 2012 Recap

Well it’s that time of year again when I trying to put into words the amazing food that I’ve eaten at Fourth Arts Block’s annual tasting tour.  Superstorm Sandy put a wrench in the works, so coverage is a bit later than usual this year, but well worth the wait. As with last year, things […]

Russ & Daughters Red Cross Fundraiser

It seems that in the wake of Superstorm Sandy (& the Nor’easter currently bring freakishly cold weather to NYC) the city has really pulled together in support of those that lost their homes & livelihood. Russ & Daughters, quite possibly NYC’s most famous appetizing store, will be hosting a Red Cross fundraiser tonight in conjunction with […]

Petrossian

Caviar, I can’t get enough of the stuff.  Unfortunately, it’s so damn expensive that opportunities are few and far between.  When an affordable four course meal for two popped up on Groupon, I decided that it was time to take my Mom out for dinner.  If you haven’t been to the restaurant, odds are that […]

Meatball Factory To Become A Seafood Restaurant

The Meatball Factory on 14th street has had it’s ups & downs, but it seems that the final nail in the coffin has been hammered in.  EVGrieve reported that the space was closed & in disarray earlier this week (it’s second closing) & now The Local East Village confirms that the space has been sold to Miha Knondoker […]

Cowgirl Sea-Horse

If I told you that there was a nautically themed Tex-Mex restaurant located near South Street Seaport hidden under the Brooklyn Bridge, you’d probably call me a liar.  Sister restaurant to Tortilla Flats (review) on the West Side, it has the same decor sensibility & I imagine a similar raucous late-night atmosphere.  We arrived late in the afternoon on […]

Sa Aming Nayon (Closed)

I’ll be the first to admit that I’m no expert in Filipino food, in fact, my visit to Maharlika last year was the only time I’ve ever tried the cuisine.  I had heard good things about the food there & was feeling adventurous had a coupon to use, so I decided to give Sa Aming Nayon […]

Hester St. Fair Arrives On Saturday April 28th

With warm weather in the air, the 2012 season of the Hester Street Fair is set to kick off next Saturday April 28th. I’ve had my problems with previous years & the crowding, but I can honestly say I’m looking forward to it. Every Saturday from 10am to 6pm through October 27th you’ll be able […]

Choice Eats 2012

I’ve been to a few Food Events over the past few years, so it wasn’t my first rodeo, but nothing prepared me for the scale of this year’s Choice Eats tasting event that took place last week.  I thought I’d be clever & arrive 15 minutes early to ‘avoid the crowd’, but we were greeted […]
