The Seventh Annual Village Voice Choice Eats Tasting Event was simply awesome! No doubt that Choice Eats has become one of New York’s premier foodie events, and for good reason. With over 60 incredible restaurants representing all five boroughs of the city, the shear magnitude of the down-right stellar food is bordering on insanity, which we personally have zero problems with! The production team that spent the better part of a year preparing for the massive feast, delivered in a big way. As we attend so many culinary events on a monthly basis, we can honestly say that this was by far, one of our favorite!
A New York institution is back! For more than 86 years, Gallagher’s Steakhouse has been a part of the fabric of New York City and after a long substantial renovation and change of ownership, the iconic landmark is again poised to make NYC culinary history. It’s been a few decades since either of us have stepped through the doors of Gallagher’s, but as we crossed the threshold and walked past the window of the meat locker, we knew we were in the right place.

Take the elevator to the forth floor, don’t ask too many questions and be prepared to be transported into another world. Not sure if we want to even share our new found secret hideaway with you, but as you know, this is what we do. The newly opened Z Bar on the rooftop of Stage 48 has taken Euro-Latin cuisine to a whole new level. In a very sexy space in which big flavors collide with an unbeatable view, Z Bar is the place to be. Under the direction of Executive Chef Gonzalo Colin and Chef Consultant Ricardo Cardona, the food at Z Bar is nothing less than stellar.
A huge congratulations to Jonathan Waxman for 10 years of incredible food and fabulous memories at Barbuto. Ten years is a major milestone for any restauranteur, but to achieve that mark in New York City is monumental. Over the years we have had some of the best meals of our lives at Barbuto and have had the privilege of working with Jonathan on several charities that he is involved with. Not only is Jonathan a true legend and culinary visionary, he is a humble, generous and a man of character.
