Salt & Fat

Salt & Fat

Ah, where to begin that accurately expresses all that I feel for my darling Guacamoleyes, aka my former coworker that I left just as she started. Even though we only worked together for a short time, our friendship began immediately; I don’t remember what off-color joke she or I made but that was it, we were done. Friends forever. To that end, as soon as I’d left, we made plans to eat together: to explore her new neighborhood. It turned out I was very familiar with a restaurant she wanted to try – Salt & Fat – where I’d previously [...]

Forest Hills Station House

Forest Hills Station House

I’m so hesitant to post this review because my neighborhood is getting crowded enough with d-bags… but… After a Mets game semi-recently, my “friend” and I headed over to the Forest Hills Station House, presumably thusnamed because of its proximity to the LIRR. Since my “friend” needed the LIRR to get home after dinner, I figured it’d be a great spot to check out, plus I’d heard the beer list was fairly impressive and he’s a home brewer and beer nerd blah blah blah Obsessed with Brussels sprouts, yes I am still. Thick cut chunks of bacon, an expert char [...]

Dos Caminos

Dos Caminos

You know how sometimes you don’t get to pick where you eat, because you have to pretend to be accommodating and nice? You know, like on a date*? So that’s how I ended up at Dos Caminos in midtown. It wasn’t even a real date. (Thus my complete comfort in whipping out my camera and announcing I was going to blog the meal.) Oh well. Because I like salad and I like to try what places offer in the way of salad, we started with the chopped salad. Someone in the kitchen must’ve been pushed while making this, because it [...]

Little Prince

Little Prince

A few weeks ago, the Stallion mentioned Little Prince to me as a cute little French bistro type place with a stellar French Onion Soup burger that he’d had, long ago, and thoroughly enjoyed. Actually, the conversation started when we were eating at a restaurant I didn’t blog, and he ordered French onion soup, and I admitted I’d never had it except that one time I made it (and didn’t care for it that much, so never made it again). So one Saturday he had off, he made reservations and that’s how I found myself at this very tiny, cramped, [...]

North River

North River

I was excited to try North River when their PR team invited me in for a meal. I tapped Cheese to join me, as he’s one of the best press meal companions – I get to pick everything and he doesn’t complain! Not about my choices, anyway. Even when they’re weird. We started with an order of meatballs, which their website no longer has as just meatballs but instead as sliders… these were tasty, soft and well-seasoned. Steak tartare, which is also no longer on the menu… a shame, since those little potato slices on top? LOVE. The tartare itself [...]
