Small Batch – Garden City

I used to watch Top Chef on Bravo a lot, so visiting Tom Colicchio‘s restaurant in Garden City was rather exciting for me. Located right at Roosevelt Field Mall, Small Batch is located amongst the other collection of restaurants at the mall, such as Capital Grille. I really liked the exterior of the restaurant. The…

The Polo Bar – Midtown East

The Polo Bar has easily risen as one of my favorite restaurants in New York City. Elegantly designed by Ralph Lauren’s taste, the restaurant is ordained in handsome and classy brown leather, green plaid, and plenty of horse-related decor. A reservation is absolutely essential.

The San Francisco In-N-Out we went to was right by Fisherman’s Wharf,…
