Let Her Eat Chocolate Cake!

I went to Market Café for the first time. I read about the quality of food from this Hell’s Kitchen eatery. I also heard about the service. Despite the pros and cons I wanted to experience this for myself, this is my neighborhood after all. First Market Café is all about the food and the food is awesome. I had … Read More

Daily Eats Lunchbox – Swich – Pressed Sandwich

Swich is a cool concept and greater interior. This on par with Smac. I had the Thanksgiving Every Day. Though a little too bready I like the taste. It was turkey, cranberry, homestuffing on homemade peacan bread. Swich104 Eight Avenue, Between 15 and 16th StreetsNew York, NY 10011212-488-4800

Lunch at Le Cirque

I went to Le Cirque for lunch on my own last summer and just found this scribble while cleaning out some papers.
