Four & Twenty Blackbirds
April 13, 2016
The promise of pie can brighten even a dreary afternoon, and that's what brought us in out of the rain and cold yesterday. Four & Twenty Blackbirds, a pie and coffee shop located in the Gowanus neighborhood of Brooklyn, makes old-fashioned pies, some in delightfully modern flavor combinations. With painted pressed tin walls and ceiling and comfortably-worn ...

OddFellows Ice Cream Co.
April 12, 2016
I would argue that while it's important to have a favorite ice cream place, it's perhaps even more important to have a favorite ice cream place in as many neighborhoods as possible. Weekend socializing, errands, and exploring often take us out of our immediate corner of the city, and I like feeling secure in my knowledge of where we might ...

Russ & Daughters Cafe
April 11, 2016
Both my children have an endless appetite for smoked salmon.  Personally, I hadn't tasted smoked salmon until I was a teenager, but living on the Upper West Side, these little girls are fortunate to have sampled some of the best.  While on the Lower East Side to visit the Tenement Museum, we tried Russ & Daughters Cafe, ...

Lower East Side food: Doughnut Plant
April 6, 2016
A few doors down Grand Street from Kossar's Bialys is Doughnut Plant, home of some of my favorite doughnuts in the city. The perfect sweet ending to a progressive breakfast (is there is such a thing? There should be!), you'll be tempted to sample every last flavor. Now a mini doughnut empire with four New ...

Lower East Side food: Kossar's Bialys
April 4, 2016
Around the corner on Grand Street from The Pickle Guys is Kossar's, one of the last bialy stores left in New York. For those unfamiliar with the bialy, think of a cross between an english muffin and a bagel, with an indented center traditionally filled with onions. Bialys are baked not boiled, and have floury exteriors and ...

Lower East Side food: The Pickle Guys
April 4, 2016
Pickles may not come immediately to mind as an iconic New York food, but with as many as 80 pickle shops and carts crowding Essex Street and surrounding streets on the Lower East Side during the first half of the 20th century, pickles were an essential and familiar part of life for many tenement dwellers. ...

Ample Hills Creamery
February 10, 2016
Some might be hard-pressed to think of these winter days, with temperatures below freezing and biting winds blowing, as ideal days for ice cream, but our little family begs to differ. Our plans last weekend took us near enough to one of our favorite ice cream shops that I lobbied for a stop, and we ...

Court Street Grocers
February 10, 2016
During the final weeks of my pregnancy, after months of consciously avoiding so many of the foods you're advised against eating while pregnant, I read an article about the perfect Italian combo sandwich in a food magazine and could suddenly think of little else. Made by a small gourmet market a few neighborhoods away from our ...

MilkMade Ice Cream
January 15, 2016
  One might think it a bit silly to trek from our home in the Upper West Side to Brooklyn for ice cream in the middle of winter but after drooling over MilkMade Ice Cream’s tumblr feed for months, it was time to give it a try in real life.  The journey was worth it and surely ...

Pizza
November 4, 2010
Pizza places are everywhere in New York so picking a favorite would not only be impossible but simply immoral.  There are zillions of restaurants ranging from the simple traditional New York slice to the thin-crust, brick-oven gourmet type and below are a few of my favorites (with kids AND without).  I am going to keep ...

Veniero's Pasticceria

Without fail... every year since birth, my entire family has celebrated their birthday with a cake from Veniero’s. There simply is no substitute, and frankly, a birthday just isn't a birthday without one. The old-school Italian Pasticceria has been around since the beginning of time and is a wonderful place to bring your kids for ...

Veselka -- Ukranian 27/7
June 28, 2010
One of the greatest things about New York City is the ability to source any type food you desire at a moment's notice -- even at 3am. Veselka has been around since I was a kid and I am happy that it is still going strong. This long-standing East Village eatery is open 24-7 and ...

Katz's Delicatessen
June 28, 2010
Katz's Delicatessen is a classic New York fixture and happens to be one of the few dining institutions to have survived the massive gentrification of the East Village. The sprawling cafeteria-like space is filled with nostalgia and serves up hand-cut fries, mile high pastrami sandwiches and hot dogs with all the fixins'. It is an ...

You can’t help but LOVE New York City if you take an early evening stroll on The Highline. Not only is the people-watching fantastic but the whole experience will just make you feel cool. The Highline was the old elevated subway system in NYC and after years of sitting dilapidated and unused it has been ...

The Limelight Marketplace
May 25, 2010
In the 1980s, early '90s, The Limelight was perhaps the most popular nightclub in New York City. Known for its wild parties, weekly drug busts, and all around freakiness, the club closed its doors long ago but the space itself has recently been transformed and re-opened as a...gasp...mini-mall. The old cathedral space is now The ...

The cupcake competition in New York has swelled to epic proportions and it seems like there are cupcake pop-up shops everywhere all of a sudden. I am not sure why, as a society, we have become so obsessed with this portable baked good but who's complaining? I am totally psyched to be able to get ...

So the very loud, stay-at-home dad that I have written about before is truly a deep and bottomless well of good information. He has been talking up this coffee place that just opened in the neighborhood saying we were all complete and total fools if we ever went anywhere else for our morning fix. As ...

While most of us can agree that eating out with small children usually causes nothing but indigestion, I do like to get out from time to time to give us all a break. That being said, when we do venture out, I am VERY particular about finding places that are both adult and kid friendly. ...
