Community Gardens
April 21, 2016
Tucked into vacant lots and unused corners of the city, New York's Community Gardens can feel like a real discovery when you happen upon them. Two months ago we exited the subway at 2nd Avenue on our way to brunch and came face-to-face with the Liz Christy Community Garden. How I've missed it all these ...

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, ...

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. ...

Baby Cakes
August 16, 2009
I was asked to bring a treat for a birthday party at the girls' pre-school last year, but with all the food allergies out there these days filling that request can be downright terrifying. Ok…so let’s see….that leaves me with what options?….rice cakes? …a fistful of raisins? What “treat” on earth is going to be ...
