Restaurant Review: Peter Luger, Brooklyn

Established in 1887, Peter Luger Steak House is a New York institution. Cash only, no reservations online, Peter Luger is the epitome of old-school Brooklyn. Their NYC location is right by the Williamsburg Bridge, which used to be a trek for Manhattanites but now a popular tourist destination.

Restaurant Review: Cheeseboat BK

Nestled in the heart of bustling Williamsburg is Cheeseboat, an authentic Georgian (the country, not the state) restaurant, offering some of Brooklyn’s cheesiest crab-loaded dishes. The female-lead restaurant is a cozy space with delicious food. We started with the Vegetarian Cuatro Dip, four different dips served with bread. Out of the smoky eggplant spread, beet & herb… Continue reading Restaurant Review: Cheeseboat BK

Cherry Blossoms and Culinary Adventures in DC

This past spring, I had the opportunity to travel to Washington, D.C. as the Cherry Blossoms were in full bloom on the National Mall. These beautiful trees were a gift to the US from Japan in 1912. When the trees bloom in the spring, it is a spectacular sight to behold. It was a beautiful… Continue reading Cherry Blossoms and Culinary Adventures in DC
