2016 National Meatball Day with Dina Deleasa

As the month of March approaches we get excited for the impending spring season. We are hopeful that warmer weather is rounding the corner. March is also pretty synonymous with St. Patrick’s day and all things green. What I am most excited for is coming up...

Parm NYC – A Secret Meal At Their Upper West Location

When a foodie sees the little slightly curved rigatoni, their immediate thought is always one thing: Carbone. When I first saw these beautiful noodles on the ‘gram I thought they were Carbone too. Nevertheless, I clicked the pic and to my surprise they were...

Panette NYC – My New Favorite Sandwich Shop In NYC

I’ll never forget the first bite of the best sandwich I ever had. I was in Florence, Italy, a place known for fresh…basically everything, and this specific sandwich shop had been hyped up for a while. All my friends who had previously been there said...

Where To Go In NYC During National Pasta Month

Some people love their birthday month, some people love December for the Holidays and the romantics out there love February but as a foodie October takes the cake because it’s National Pasta Month. That’s right, an entire month devoted to eating pasta. So...

Burrata, Fried Pizza & Friends at Forcella

One of my best friends, who I haven’t seen since graduation, was trekking into the city today from Philly (even though she thinks Philly should technically be called the city but that’s another story for another day) so I knew I had to show her a good...

Brightening up the Financial District: Felice 15

Finding good food in the Financial District is like finding a needle in a haystack. Tough to do, but when you finally come across it, it’s totally worth the search. On my lazy Sunday night, festivities consisting of prowling Seamless and binge watching...
Bar Pitti

Penne alla Vodka at Bar Pitti in the West Village

I’d like to think of myself as a PAV (penne alla vodka #duh) connoisseur and Bar Pitti has been on my list of unreal PAV places to go for a while.  Somehow it always got shafted because I had somewhere bigger and better to go. Looking back I regret this...
Rubirosa

Rubirosa – It’s always a good idea!

This afternoon my best friend came into New York City to surprise me. She was ravenous after a long morning of traveling and we both looked at each other and immediately knew where we wanted to eat, Rubirosa. Located in Nolita amongst several other Italian...
Brooklyn Buschenschank Quickly Become a Favorite Of Mine

Bring on the Pizza and Beer at Brooklyn Buschenschank

Brooklyn Heights is home to many great, inexpensive bars and taverns, however, Buschenschank on the corner of Court and Sackett stands apart. The Northern Italian and German style farmhouse tavern boasts a pretty decent Happy Hour: Monday through Friday...
Pazzi Pasta

Behind The Kitchen with Dr. Giovanni Campanile of Pazzi Pasta

I recently tried Pazzi Pasta over in Brooklyn and was blown away. This pasta was some of the best and freshest pasta I’ve ever eaten, plus I felt good eating it since it’s made from the highest quality whole grains. I left Pazzi Pasta feeling guilt free...

Organic and Freshly Made Pasta in Brooklyn: Pazzi Pasta

To be honest, I’ve never been a pasta lover. I don’t know exactly why, but maybe because it was never a staple in my family dinners, or maybe because once I became interested in health and nutrition, pasta never fit into this new lifestyle. All those...
