Mount Vernon: XS

Previously, I’ve reviewed the brunch at XS and had an amazing experience. Since then I decided to go back and try some of the other things they offer. Their menu has a little bit of everything like sushi, Asian Food and American Food. On this visit, my friends and I were interested […]

Woodbury, NY: Gabby’s Bagels

When I’m home, I always make it a point to stop at Gabby’s Bagels in Woodbury (despite the horribly slow service.) And that’s really saying something because when I say the service is slow, I mean slow. Don’t expect a visit to take less than 20 minutes, regardless of what […]

Latte

Charles Village: Charmington’s

Latte art is something that fascinates me, I think it’s so awesome how a barista can turn your typical steamed milk and expresso into a work of art. After a quick google search, I found that Charmington’s in Charles Village not only has latte art, but great reviews about their food […]

Mount Vernon: Dooby’s

When I heard that a new coffee shop opened up in Mount Vernon, I didn’t think much of it. While I love a good cup of coffee as much as the next person, I was certainly in no rush to try Dooby’s. However, once I read the Baltimore […]

The Julia House Salad

Mount Vernon: Sammy’s Trattoria

When you’re looking for good Italian food, the first place you look probably isn’t Mount Vernon when there are so many delicious options in Little Italy. However, for a great Italian meal a little further north in the city, Sammy’s Trattoria does the trick. Each dish is freshly prepared and you can truly […]

Buffalo Chicken Eggrolls

Federal Hill: Stalking Horse

Federal Hill is best known for its bar scene, and there’s no denying on a Friday or Saturday night that the streets are filled with young adults trying to get their ‘drink on.’ And it’s not uncommon to see people waiting in line for around 20 minutes to […]

O-Nuts

Federal Hill: Spoons

Among the throng of bars in Fed Hill, there’s a cute little coffee shop that could easily be missed if you’re not looking for it. And when I’m in the mood for brunch, it is easily my favorite spot in Fed Hill. Spoons is not your traditional brunch place though, because […]
