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 […]

Charrito’s Restaurant

I haven’t been ashamed to say that I rarely leave the East Village, so a post about a Mexican restaurant in Weehawken, NJ is somewhat out of place here. A friend recently moved over there and the fact that I had a free car ride & the promise of good Mexican food was enough to […]

Pedro’s

While there are loads of Mexican restaurants in the East Village, none of them quite top the vibe at Pedro’s in Dumbo.  Well worth the subway ride, I can guarantee that you won’t be disappointed with your meal there.  Being a Friday night, it was a bit packed, but we didn’t have to wait that […]

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 […]

The Toucan And The Lion

A few weeks ago I mentioned that a new restaurant was opening in the former Mara’s Homemade spot on 6th Street.  I had a chance to check the place out last night & I’ll admit that I was very impressed.  It’s really hard to believe that this is the same space, gone are the purple […]

FAB’s East Village Eats Tasting Tour Recap

Although being postponed for a few months & having to try to outdo the 2010 event, this year’s East Village Eats Tour run by Fourth Arts Block did not disappoint.  I realize that I’m a few weeks late, but I had such a great time that the memories & flavors are still fresh in my […]

The Changing Face Of St Marks

There’s been a lot of food-related activity on St Marks recently.  Mõtek, a small restaurant serving coffee & crepes has closed according to EVGrieve.  I reviewed the place last November & never returned.  Honestly Mõtek, won’t be missed. Construction at 119 St Marks continues.  The Taco Joint was on the 01/11 CB3-SLA docket.  Not sure how […]

Taste Of Nolita Recap

Last week I attended the Taste Of Nolita Food Festival (previously mentioned here) which ran from Wednesday til Friday & featured 7 restaurants & discounts at a few bars in Nolita.  Luckily I had the chance to go, so I figure I’d let you know my thoughts on the event.  Things kicked off at Asia […]

Taste of Nolita Food Festival

Sort of like the Taste of 7th Street Food Festival that I’ve spoken about before, Scoop St. is bringing us a Nolita version.  Honestly, I’ll admit that I don’t know that much about restaurants in the area, but it’s not too far from the East Village & the lineup does look sick. A mere $19 […]

Mercadito

The details on this post might be slightly sketchy because I’m recounting events from several weeks ago, but here goes…  I went for an impromptu dinner with 3 buddies to Mercadito (179 Avenue B between 11th & 12th street) for some upscale Mexican food.  It was early & the place wasn’t heaving yet (it can […]
