Lunch at

Amelie – 22 West 8th Street.. According to yelp it has the best croquet Madame in the village.  It was good, but not the best, if for no other reason than it wasn’t served with fries.  We sat at the front table, side by side, looking out the […]

Tao Downtown

We went to see Ballet Hispanica at The Joyce last night and they were good, not the great I had remembered.  But beforehand we had dinner at 92 9th Avenue at a wow sort of place called Tao Downtown. No words could describe the room and no  image […]

Bella Blu

After ten days in Miami I am so happy to be back in NYC. Life is good. After a morning in the house I went out and the cool air and city streets filled me with energy. Then dinner, an amazingly delicious ravioli of veal in a burnt […]

24 Fifth Avenue at 10th Street.  Could be a favorite for sure.  A bit pricey and we skipped the dessert but really a great place to be.  Everything was good, including the free fried cauliflower they gave us because the kitchen had a delay.  We order the special […]

Intermezzo

Prior to seeing ….at the Joyce we dropped in to Intermezzo for dinner.  I liked it.  A straight forward menu I had POLLO VALDOSTANA a  prosciutto and  spinach stuffed chicken breast, I ate every bite.

Hiding in plain sight down a few steps on St Marks Place is the Dumpling Man.  Serving just a few kinds of dumplings in a dingy basement I would come here frequently if it were convenient if just for the fun of watching the women turn out dumpling […]

Momofuko Noodle Bar

We arrived for our 5:30 chicken dinner reservation, which we had made a month in advance, to find a line outside- “no, sorry, even with a reservation they dont open the doors until 5:30” no matter I suppose that it wa 37 degrees and drizzling. What could be […]
