Emmy Squared

Did you know there was such a thing as Detroit-style pizza? Nor did I, and I’m from Detroit. Apparently, the folks at Emmy Squared in Brooklyn knew because they have a spot that features this glorious pie not far from the Williamsburg Bridge. To me, this is a pizza like no other. It’s a rectangular…

Tre

We began our first afternoon in New York with lunch at Sweet Chick and dessert at Levain Bakery, so we were still full around dinner time and didn’t become hungry again until around 9 pm. Our original goal was to head to Brooklyn for dinner, but we were feeling lazy from our walk (we basically…

The Doughnut Project

My friend and I began our second day in NYC at The Doughnut Project in the West Village. My goal was to sample their breakout doughnut and then a plain glazed (I have a thing about trying the most basic item on the menu when it comes to doughnuts and cupcakes). It seems that The…

Sweet Chick

My friend and I stayed right in the middle of the lower east side while in NYC. The neighborhood has changed tremendously (there’s a Whole Foods now?) since we lived there, but one thing hasn’t changed is finding good places to eat. We were so lucky to stumble upon Sweet Chick! We checked into our…

Corner Bistro

Can’t believe I forgot to post about Corner Bistro!!  After my barge happy hour, my friend and I worked up quite an appetite and I was really in the mood for a burger.  While she brainstormed for a few places, I sent a quick text to a good foodie friend of mine asking for recommendations. …

M Wells Steakhouse

I spent last weekend visiting friends in New York. I love that city so much and for the first time in a long time, it felt like a vacation. I also love eating my way around New York and had a true adventure meeting a dear friend for drinks and dinner at M Wells Steakhouse…

Doughnut Plant

I debated for about two hours trying to decide if I was going to stop in NYC for a doughnut on my way to Boston.  I knew I would have to drive through the city, but was afraid of being stuck in traffic.  As I approached Elizabeth NJ, traffic didn’t seem that bad, so I…
