Peter Luger Steak House – Great Neck

After all these years, I have finally ventured into Peter Luger. There are two locations — Brooklyn and Great Neck — and for ease and convenience, we endeavored into the Great Neck location. Peter Luger has been named a top steakhouse in NY for many years now, and it is considered a classic and a…

The Rolling Spring Roll – Syosset

I never knew much about Vietnamese food, so I was excited to try out this relatively new joint off of Jericho Turnpike. The interior is very casual, but pleasant. The place isn’t too big, and there’s a woody beige theme throughout. There is a bar, although I question if a bar-life exists. Nonetheless, the place…

32 Star — Montauk

32 Star is located within Gurney’s Montauk Yacht Club, which apparently is a very recent endeavor. The restaurant replaced the previous restaurant there called Coast Kitchen, and supposedly 32 Star is also a temporary visitor at the location. Nonetheless, we hit the restaurant on none other than my birthday. Gurney’s Yacht Club is generally a…

Wild Honey – Oyster Bay

Wild Honey is located on the Main Street of the historical region of Oyster Bay. The building is quite pleasant and the entry is inviting. There is sidewalk seating in rustic wooden chairs. The interior is pleasant, but admittedly very dark. Although not very evident in the photos, I felt as though it was so…

One North – Jericho

I heard of One North, but I was not expecting much — maybe a nice, small, and modern Mediterranean joint. I had never passed it or seen it, despite driving around this area constantly. However, upon arrival, I was pleasantly surprised and the place immediately exceeded my expectations. One North is tucked away in a…

Taiyaki NYC – Chinatown

Behold, Instagram’s favorite. There is no doubt that at some point throughout your Instagram career, you have had a glimpse of ice cream… in a fish. Not a real fish, of course. But rather, a nice aesthetic cone in the shape of a fish, with some swirling ice cream radiating off the top and a…

Bluestone Lane – West Village

Bluestone Lane is a cozy Australian cafe located in various cities, including NYC and Washington, D.C. I first heard about Bluestone on my friend’s Instagram, as she went to the one in D.C. Something about its casual, trendy, and well-crafted decor caught my attention, and I was told that I had to try their “Iced…

Celebrity Silhouette – Cruise Dining

My venue for Spring Break this past month was the honorable Celebrity Silhouette — a cruise ship that sailed from Fort Lauderdale, Florida to Key West, Mexico, and Grand Cayman. It was a joyous experience, filled with much sun, many old retirees, and — of course — much food. This was not my first cruise…

Catch – Chelsea

I have wanted to go to Catch for years now, and finally I have accomplished my goal on Valentine’s Day. Catch is located right in the middle of Chelsea, although it was not always easy to find. It is located on the second floor of a building, over Sephora. Catch has always been known for…

Villa Mosconi – Greenwich Village

I have passed Villa Mosconi for most of my life on the way to Bleecker Street on Macdougal. The restaurant is more secluded from the hectic nightlife scene on Bleecker, but there is an old-school feel to the joint as you pass it. We finally decided to eat at this family-run Italian restaurant. Upon entry,…

City Cellar – Westbury

City Cellar is a phenomenal American restaurant in Westbury. It is very NYC-style, and the place itself looks beautiful and classy. The decor of the entire restaurant is very tasteful, with attention to detail and dim lighting. The size of the restaurant is quite big, but it gets packed quickly for dinner. The prices can…

Jin Ramen – West Harlem

Jin Ramen is a cool space right by the 1 train at the W 125th station. I have passed it quite a number of times, but now finally ate there. The restaurant itself has a decently pleasant atmosphere. It is relatively small, but comfortable. It couldn’t possibly be closer to the 1 train, as it…
