S’Mac Celebrates It’s 6th Birthday

On Monday July 16th, Sarita’s Macaroni & Cheese (better known as S’Mac) will be celebrating 6 years in operation.  As part of the celebration, they will be offering their All-American Mac & Cheese for the insanely low price of one buck (normally priced at $4.75).  This is the classic American & Cheddar cheese combo in […]

New Deals At The Sunburnt Cow

Sunburnt Cow (brunch review here), an Australian bar & restaurant in the East Village most commonly know for insane burgers & all you can drink brunches has come up with some new specials just in time for the summer.  Per the press release: “The Sunburnt Cow is back!  Closed late last year, the Cow is […]

Lunch At The Brindle Room

Lunch can be somewhat boring in the East Village since there aren’t really that many good places that open & serve food before 4pm (I often find myself returning to the same places over & over again) which is why I was excited that The Brindle Room is open for lunch. I had recently watched […]

Jin Restaurant Revisited

The food at Jin (252 Broome Street between Ludlow & Orchard Street) is way too good for just a single visit, so after a few months away, I went back for a second review.  Luckily the Happy Hour special was still in full swing when we arrived.  From 3:30-7pm during the week, there are several […]

Vanessa’s Dumpling House

My brother has been trying to take me to Vanessa’s Dumpling House, one of his favorites,  for quite some time, but being the lazy git that I am, I always declined.  Finally, his pestering got the best of me & I’m so glad it did!  I had heard great things about Vanessa’s, particularly the dumplings […]

$10 for a $20 Amazon Gift Card (deal over)

This is a bit of a senseless post & most likely doesn’t belong on the blog, but you can get a $20 Amazon gift Card for $10 here (deal over).  Use the savings to buy an awesome Cuisinart Ice Cream Maker (mentioned here).  The deal currently has 19 hours left, so get on it folks!

Free Meatballs?

So I come home late last night after an epic 7 course Thursday Club NYC meal (on a Sunday when the Jets won no less!) & I collect my mail that has been festering in my mailbox for days.  Most of it is useless; bank statements, bills, junk mail etc.  Then something jumps out at […]

‘Tis the Season for Delivery

Well, I meant to post this yesterday morning when conditions were a lot worse, but I guess it’s still relevant. With the ‘Great Blizzard of 2010’ causing havoc all over the East Village, it’s likely that several restaurants will be shuttered & honestly, I couldn’t fathom why anyone would want to be out in this […]

Happy Halloween!

Luke’s Lobster (review here) is offering 10% off rolls & combo meals if you come dressed as a lobster, crab or shrimp (babies & pets included)!  This discount applies to both locations.  I doubt they make Empress crab claw or clam chowder outfits but who knows! On a side note, this is Luke’s last weekend […]

Marco Polo Cafe (Closed)

After the folks @SaintDelivery mentioned the amazing $1 Sliders at Marco Polo Cafe (102 St. Marks, near 1st Avenue) I decided that I had to try them out for myself.  Needless to say, I’ve been there 3 times in the last 4 days; AMAZING.  Named after the famed Venetian explorer that opened up the Chinese […]
