What To Order @ TAMARIND, NYC

The LOBSTER MASALA at Tamarind costs $36, but is a genius take on this authentic Indian dish.  Although I found the lobster to be a bit overcooked, it was a mouthwatering feast of a traditional medley of mushrooms, chopped onions, and garlic in a white wine and tomato sauce.

In NYC, there are ample options for Indian food.  The culture’s addictive spices, standout flavors, and unique dishes make for a nice alternative from traditional American fare for lunch, dinner pasta options, or cheap and easy Asian takeout.  But one celebrity favorite known for bringing down the house in Indian dining in NYC while accommodating […]

Ordering More Than STEAK @ THE PALM, NYC

Palm Crabcakes

THE PALM is one of my favorite steakhouse chains!  Great filets, amazing porterhouses, outstanding service and the celebrity caricatured walls of all their big name patrons make for fun and luxury dining at its best.  But I stopped in recently for lunch and thought, what else is there to get from the Palm if you […]

What To Order: @ JOE’S, Washington DC

Seafood Chopped Salad

JOE’S SEAFOOD in Washington DC is the cousin to Miami’s legendary Joe’s Stone Crab.  But the nation’s capital version is a bit more regal than the casual Washington Avenue original that still attracts lunchtime tourists in shorts. Joe’s Washington DC is glamorous restaurant that features oak-size marble columns, lush leather banquettes, suited up servers, polished […]
