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. Perhaps you could squeeze yourself in if you are truly lucky,…

Maison Kayser – West Village

Maison Kayser is a French bakery founded by Eric Kayser back in the 90s. There are many locations throughout the city, including the first Maison Kayser in the USA located in Upper East Side. The bakery is very inviting from the outside, with many colorful and delicate pastries in the window. My dad and I…

Well, we finally made it to Salvation Burger one fine evening, and it was nothing short of amazing. The restaurantΒ itself has a very chill vibe. The waitstaff is all kind…

Commander’s Palace – New Orleans

Commander’s Palace is very famous in New Orleans, and is considered the premiere upscale dining experience. It is not located in the French Quarters — it was about a 15 minute taxi drive from our Hotel on Royal Street. The area around Commander’s Palace is a bit sketchy, but the restaurant itself has a colorfully…

Royal House Oyster Bar – New Orleans

The moment we got to New Orleans, we asked around for a good place near our hotel to eat, and we were directed to the Royal House Oyster Bar. Looking back after the trip, it was a very solid option. The restaurant is pleasant, and I was a fan of the seating upstairs. The downstairs…

Market Bistro – Jericho

I have passed Market Bistro a million times, but finally, at the end of high school, I actually walked in with my family and decided to have dinner. I had previously heard a lot of raving reviews about the place, but I was skeptical. However, Market Bistro turned out to be one of my favorite…
