Joe's Pizza

Sweet redemption. One slice of cheese from Joe's to erase that awful breakfast at Cabrito.


Breakfast FAIL. Alex got owned this morning by a disgusting, sweaty pile of soggy gray tortilla chips soaked in oil and topped with two unset fried eggs and a blob of sour cream.


This is the weirdest restaurant we've been in since we moved to New York. It looks like a sushi bar, but Spanish. Like high-end tapas. This blurry mess was a slow-cooked egg in Parmesan broth with chanterelles, matsutaki mushrooms, crispy green onion, asparagus, and pea flowers.

Peep - SoHo

I love having lunch at Peep because their giant plates make me feel like a little kid. Or a midget. The tiny round thing at ten o'clock on my plate is a quarter, just so you can get an idea of scale. The wet, brown stuff on the plate is chicken with basil and chiles and yeah, it was good.

Death and Company

These people know how to make a drink. The tall one is tequila with watermelon and lime juice with a sugar, spice and salt rim. The shorty is tequila, blood orange liquer, red vermouth and molé bitters. They sound pretty fancy, but I'm not embarrassed. They was good, son.

We finally made it. The DB stands for Daniel Bouloud. GB... other than playing off of CBGB, I guess it could mean Gastro Bar? Ok, I'm just making shit up here. But who cares. This was a tasty burger. Also had Duck Meatballs, a chopped salad with watermelon, avocado and a Ginger something something dressing that was very good. Alex had Merguez sausage with yogurt sauce. Also tasty. Ok. I'm not gonna get too philosophical about hamburgers and hot dogs. Shut up and eat.

Big Apple BBQ - Madison Square Park

I don't know if I'd recommend two consecutive BBQ meals, but I inadvertently stumbled upon the Big Apple BBQ in Madison Square Park Saturday, so it's ok since it wasn't premeditated. Unfortunately, heart disease doesn't make such distinctions. Anyway, the long lines kept me out of trouble. Sadly, they also kept me out of the best BBQ. The line for Salt Lick (Austin, TX) was at least an hour long. And Jim 'N Nick's (Birmingham) wasn't much better. What we ended up with was merely mediocre brisket and pickles from
Wilson's. Take a look. Eh.

Fette Sau - Williamsburg

I think Fette Sau means something not so great in German, but that shouldn't dissuade you. This place is legit. Full on BBQ. Pulled Pork Shoulder, Brisket, Sausage with lots of fennel, and Pork Belly. AND YOU PAY BY THE POUND! Shit.
Back it up with some Gus's Pickles and Sauerkraut, and pretty much everywhere it's gonna be hot.


Still the best burrito I've had in manhattan. Speak up if you can beat it. Please. This one is called the Gringo Ground Beef Burrito and it's pretty self-explanatory.
I love the packets of Cholula Sauce. Nice touch.

Australian Homemade

This was some tasty iced cream. I have no complaints about it whatsoever. The pictured cone contains Crunchy Macadamia Nut Ice Cream with Caramel, some of which leaked out and stuck to the back of my hand. I then licked it off my hand, along with some subway germs. And now I have the swine flu. Probably.

Rai Rai Ken

Very good ramen. I didn't really need to order it with extra pork. But I did.
