Tokyo Teriyaki

Tokyo Teriyaki

I’ve raved about the wonders of my neighborhood many, many times, but there are still so many places that I’ve yet to visit – and new ones open all the time! Tokyo Teriyaki is a place I walk by constantly but was always on my way to eat or had just eaten, or meeting friends and it just didn’t seem to be the type of place you make a point to go with friends. After I got it in my head that I had to go there, and a few comical attempts to eat there that didn’t work out (one [...]

Pomme Palais – Summer Menu

Pomme Palais – Summer Menu

Somewhat recently, I began working in Midtown, which lends me the opportunity to eat lots of delicious food in a totally new landscape. And if you didn’t already know, it means I write about most of my lunches on Midtown Lunch now – with an eye towards lunches that are under $10. So though I’ve been frequenting Pomme Palais, since a lot of the items go over the $10 mark, it didn’t feel right to try to write about it there…. even after I was invited to the press preview of their summer sandwich menu. New this time ’round is [...]

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 [...]
