Restaurant Review: Pizza Loves Emily

For my birthday a few weeks ago, we headed to Clinton Hill for dinner Emily. Much like Emmy Squared, Emily focuses on delicious pizzas and one decadent burger. However, these pizzas are wood-fired Neopolitan pizzas. First up, we tried the Olympus Mons pizza, which was a cheese-less pizza. WIth Szechuan oil, garlic aachar, pickled jalapeno, … Continue reading Restaurant Review: Pizza Loves Emily

Restaurant Review: Emmy Squared

For former ADA Jared Mogil's birthday, we headed Emmy Squared, which is one restaurant of several awesome Pizza Loves Emily Restaurant group. Although pizza is their main focus, their burger (which seriously will sell out) always tops lists of best burgers in the city. Pro tip: spilt the burger and get pizza to share. Also … Continue reading Restaurant Review: Emmy Squared

Restaurant Review: Casa Enrique

I cannot believe how long it has taken me to finally try Long Island City's very own Michelin Starred Casa Enrique. Just two subway stops away from me is some of the best Mexican food I have ever had. Luckily they take reservations, so one Saturday we headed there for brunch. Before we even ordered, … Continue reading Restaurant Review: Casa Enrique

Restaurant Review: Le Fanfare

Tucked on the far northern end of Greenpoint's Manhattan Avenue is Le Fanfare, a very unassuming yet tasty Italian restaurant with some incredible specials. Every Wednesday night is pasta night with three select special pastas offered for $10 each. Grab a reservation, bring a few friends, and be prepared for a great evening! Yes, the … Continue reading Restaurant Review: Le Fanfare

Restaurant Review: Apollonia

A new Medditerian restaurant in Brooklyn? I'm there! Bushwick now has its very own cafe-by-day-restaurant-by-night in Apollonia. What intrigued me first about this new spot was the wine list: all Mediterraint coastal wines. I was even able to find one from Epirus! It had a bright, citrus effervescent taste. Various wines can be ordered by … Continue reading Restaurant Review: Apollonia

Restaurant Review: Montesacro Pinseria BK

Located in the heart of East Williamsburg, Monescaro Pinseria brings old world Rome to Brooklyn. This recently opened West Coast import ┬áhas a beautiful outdoor dining area and very delicious food. When we went, they still hadn't gotten their liquor license, so we BYOB'ed. We started out our meal with the porchetta, thick, shredded slices … Continue reading Restaurant Review: Montesacro Pinseria BK

Restaurant Review: Au Cheval

Infamous in Chicago for their over-the-top burger and long waits, Au Cheval (as in put an egg on it) has come to New York. Opening up recently in Tribeca, we headed down early on a Friday evening to put our names in for a table. Although they do take some reservations and have a full … Continue reading Restaurant Review: Au Cheval

Classic New York: The Clover Club

At the heart of the Brooklyn cocktail renaissance is Cobble Hills' Clover Club. For the past decade, bartenders here have been known of their innovative cocktail creations. In fact, a few years ago, I took a cocktail making course at the Brooklyn Kitchen with one of the Clover Club's owners and head bartenders Tom Macy. … Continue reading Classic New York: The Clover Club

Restaurant Review: Chumley’s

This past spring, I was lucky enough to snag tickets to Phoebe Waller-Bridge's reprise of her one woman show Fleabag at the Soho Playhouse (this is the play that would lead to/inspire the hit Amazon show). The performance was amazing, even more raw than the TV show (if you haven't seen it yet, seriously check … Continue reading Restaurant Review: Chumley’s
