4 Food Delights

Fast food that is good for you may sound like an oxymoron, but New Yorkers can indulge their taste buds in a new type of comfort food. When it comes to the double burger with cheese fries, I struggle to make the right choice, but stepping into 4food and looking at the menu the healthy alternative do not seem bad. De-junking fast food is 4food’s motto. It is fresh, nutritious but most of all delicious. Free range turkey, pancetta bacon, mushroom and onion on a brioche, labeled as the Growburger, caught my attention out of all the sandwiches and one bite into it, I concluded that this is my new lunch spot.

RedFarm Pleases the Palate

There are few times that I can truly remember every dish that I’ve eaten at a particular restaurant. And there are even fewer times that each dish is remembered with such pleasure than at RedFarm – the ultra hip and deliciously sinful Chinese fusion restaurant in the West Village.

One of the many goals while living in Manhattan is finding delicious food at an affordable price that delivers to your apartment. With numerous types of cuisines, the possibilities of where to eat are endless, but if your taste buds are craving Indian cuisine check out Patiala in Hell’s Kitchen.

Italian as Art

I am of the firm conviction that there is nothing better than Italian in New York City. From homestyle to “alto Italiano” (high-class Italian) there is much to choose from in our fair metropolis.  And now with the opening of East 12th Osteria there is an option that is as delicious as eating in the land of La Docle Vita. With smart, sensuous and smallish options – chef Roberto Deiaco has created a menu that is a delight to both the eyes and the palate.

Oh Snow Cozy

It snuck up on us again this year, and somehow we were all surprised. Winter…the holidays. It’s time to embrace it, but you don’t have to turn your space into a winter wonderland. A few new accessories will ease us into the seasonal change. Shop online or in these local stores for cozy, (somewhat) Christmas-y, but ever-stylish pieces. The best part? You can enjoy each one of these items from the comfort of your sofa!
