The Salt Bagel. It’s a Magical Carb.

Growing up in the boroughs of New York, bagels have always been a staple in my diet. I’d eat them for breakfast, I’d eat them for lunch, I’d eat them for dinner. Nice, chewy and satisfying, you could give them a good schmear of anything you wanted, think cream cheese or butter, to whitefish salad […]

ABC Kitchen NYC

ABC Kitchen is one of my favorite restaurants in the city. Chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten curates a menu that is free of pesticides, synthetic fertilizers, insecticides, antibiotics, hornomes, GMO-free and is sourced from humane and regional farmers, as well as fair trade cooperatives. The freshness in every single one of their dishes is absolutely incredible. You […]

$60 Burger at Burger Bar in Las Vegas

I went to Las Vegas and bought a $60 burger. Yep, I’m talking about the Rossini at Hubert Keller’s Burger Bar. Was it worth $60? Nope. Patrick’s much cheaper burger definitely won in taste over mine. The Rossini burger is made with Wagyu beef from Australia, has foie gras and shaved truffles. Would I eat […]

BarBacon Restaurant NYC

[The Tasting] I am a bacon lover. It’s one of my downfalls in life. That’s why I could never be in the CIA. I’d give up national secrets for a big plate of crispy, smoky and mouthwatering strips of bacon. [Either a Rye or Bourbon, I tasted a few that day.] A while back I […]

Louie Mueller BBQ Mail Order

At this point and time in my life, Louie Mueller is hands down the best BBQ I have ever had. I hit it up in Texas when I did a BBQ road trip with Patrick a year or two ago. I’ve completely lost track of time to be honest. I guess that’s what happens as […]

Masq Restaurant & Lounge NYC

At a press dinner for Masq (a play on the word masquerade), we got to sample a variety of New American dishes that had a New Orleans influence to them, which I was extremely excited about. I’ve never been to Louisiana, but am looking forward to going one day and have a feeling I’ll come […]

The Burger Bistro

There is no way when you look at this picture you don’t think, “Crap, that’s a good looking burger.” This beauty came from The Burger Bistro in the Upper East Side. It was meaty, cooked great and had lots of cheesy goodness on it. It’s what a burger should be.   7.5 out of 10 […]

Low-Calorie Crustless Quiche Recipe

I love me some quiche, but not how caloric it can be. But I figured that if I just cut out the crust, I’d be saving a ton of calories, but still be getting that great flavor. Ingredients 3 eggs Cut up broccoli florets Big splash of whole milk Small handful of parmesan Small handful […]

How to Make Deli Roast Beef

It’s been a bit hard finding deli meats sourced from humane farms. So, because of that, I figured that I could try to see if I could make my own. Not only could I EASILY make my own, but Patrick actually likes the taste better than deli meat we get at the store. Definitely a […]

Umami Burger NYC Review

I had a burger this weekend. And I don’t know if I will be able to explain this correctly and it might sound weird, but here it goes. So, I’m not positive if it was the most delicious burger I have ever had before, but it sure as hell was the most satisfying burger I […]

In-N-Out Burger

My favorite high-brow, fast food burger joint, In-N-Out. It amazes me we don’t have one in New York still. I feel like it would really hold its own against the competition here.     – Joyce Huang

Easy Squash Blossoms Recipe

I heart squash blossoms. I’ve cooked with them in previous posts, I’ll include the link to one later. This time around I made a side of them to accompany veggie packed scrambled eggs. For the squash blossoms all I did was -Take the stamens out and discard -Stuff with a bit of goat cheese (because […]

How to Make Bone Marrow at Home

I heart bone marrow. It is a lot to handle though because it is so rich. Usually when you go out to a fancy restaurant they’ll have this on the menu and serve it with bread, sea salt and maybe a parsley salad. My favorite way to devour it is to schmear it on a […]

Bacon Peanut Butter Sandwich

I got a serious hankering for a peanut butter and bacon sandwich today, so I made one. I’ve never had a peanut butter and bacon sandwich before, but sometimes your body craves what it’s gonna’ crave. That or maybe I was procrastinating from work. Who knows?   It’s just a sandwich, so you’re really just […]
