Where to Celebrate St. Patrick’s Day 2017

Posted on Mar 13, 2017 in Holiday Eats, St. Patrick's Day

There’s nothing especially glamorous about meat-and-potatoes Irish fare, with its gravy-soaked portions and lusterless palette of brown, tan and white. Yet, those homely qualities are precisely what makes it so appealing, and why St. Patrick’s Day (celebrated this Friday) proves a welcome vehicle to push it to the culinary forefront. So hoist a pint of Guinness and a hunk of soda bread instead, at The Breslin, The Dead Rabbit and more…

Hanoi House

Posted on Feb 24, 2017 in Ethnic Eats, Restaurant Spotting

St. Mark’s street has long been a haven for cheap and quick Asian food of all sorts; a mecca for NYU students in search of affordable, filling dinners, or late night, alcohol-absorbing snacks.
