Dassara Ramen #AquaBoil Pop-Up

We’re not sure what it is, but people in NYC lose their damn minds over “Pop-up shops.” Doesn’t matter if it’s clothes, shoes, music, Japanese origami, etc., New Yorkers love themselves some quality pop-ups. Maybe it’s the illusion of exclusivity or the FOMO factor weighing in heavy, but in our minds the term “pop-up” means… Read more »

MAMO NYC #NYCFAT

MAMO NYC

The NYC installment of the “French Riviera Celebrity Hot Spot” is now open in Soho, and we are shamelessly announcing our full endorsement of everything that is happening at MAMO.

Untamed Sandwiches

It’s not often that we are able to take time for a quality lunch, or any lunch for that matter, which is just a sin of corporate America. Most of our colleagues and friends dish out $9-$13 on the same Chopt salad or Chipotle burrito every day during the week, which is just about as… Read more »

Best Pesto Recipe

Best Basil Pesto Recipe

If we were a professional sports team, and mascots could be live herb plants instead of animals, our mascot would undoubtedly be a giant bunch of fresh basil. Wait, what? That’s right.

Bai

Drink Bai

Do you like coffee? Do you like fruit? If you answered yes to both, then you need to try Bai.

We’re hopping on the Bai bandwagon because each bottle is infused with the… Read more »

Grilled Flank Steak

Grilled Flank Steak Recipe

Grilling steak probably intimidates the hell out of you, and rightfully so. There are only a few things more embarrassing than presenting an overcooked or under-seasoned filet that probably cost upwards of $25 when you’re manning the grill. Chances are you go straight for the 8-to-10-ounce filet, toss it on a grill that’s barely hot… Read more »

Pops by Haley

Pops By Haley

Remember Push Pops, and Push-Up Pops, and Pop-Ups, and Peel-A-Pops, and every other variation of candy/ice cream-filled push up treats that make you nostalgic for the blissfully hot summer days of your childhood?

The Best Crostini Recipe

Dinner parties are super rewarding when you perfectly execute the cooking time of all of your dishes and your guests arrive when they are told to show up.
