Regional Bites: Roast Beef Sandwiches of Greater Boston

| October 22, 2009 | 6 Comments

Some foods are ubiquitous to areas. Philadelphia has its cheesesteaks. The south has its BBQ. New York has its cheesecake. Boston has its baked beans. But for every well-known regional food, there are dozens of lesser known ones that are just as wonderful — if not more so. When it comes to greater Boston, one […]

What I Did Today … Craftbar and Starbucks Via

Let’s take a break from cooking for just one day. I really want to tell you about what I did today, but I will forewarn you — I was invited to this event, a product launch. It’s not something that I generally talk about on this blog, but it was a great event at a […]

A taste of ‘ino

A taste of ‘ino

For a friend’s birthday several years ago, she wanted to try out a little West Village Italian Wine Bar known for it’s bruscettas, tramezzinnis, and paninis called ‘ino. The tiny restaurant doesn’t allow reservations and, as a result, we had a long wait to get in. I hate long waits anywhere, and this was no […]

Before going to New York the other day, I looked for new and upcoming eateries in the Columbia-Barnard area. One that caught my eye was Panino Sportivo, which is located beneath Barnard College’s Plimpton Residence Hall in an area that once held rundown and rarely frequented ethnic eateries. For starters, just seeing people at this […]

Review: Mexicali Rose, Newtown

Mexicali Rose in Newtown doesn’t look like much from the outside – just another storefront eatery with a clever sign. Located on Route 25, you can’t let the location fool you though. This isn’t just some hole in the wall. When you walk in, you are met with a cute assortment of vintage tables and […]

Virtual Frolic and I ventured to ChikaLicious Dessert Bar the other afternoon in search of something sweet and scrumptious. It was decidedly small, with only a handful of tables and some seats at the bar. The decor had a clean simplicity to it, which was nice. We selected a table near the door and perused […]

The Steak Gorgonzola is amazing. The thin fried onion wisps that adorn it and the mashed potato bed melts in your mouth. Once in a while they have Chicken Gorgonzola, which is really delicious too, but isn’t quite as breathtaking as the steak version. Villa also makes a mean cheeseburger. The mid-week Prix Fixe menu […]

I had an amazing burrito here – it was the steak fajita burrito with cheese and mild salsa. The tortilla was soft and light. The peppers and onions were cooked just right – crisp and flavorful. And the salsa had a hint of bite, but didn’t toss my shoes across the room. And it was […]

Remembering My Old Haunts Around Barnard

Remembering My Old Haunts Around Barnard

| November 17, 2005 | 0 Comments

I get reminiscent every so often about all the good food I ate while studying at Barnard College in New York. My friends really opened my eyes to some great ethnic foods that I might not have sampled otherwise. There was Zula, the Ethiopian restaurant that has since closed, where my friends and I would […]
