NYC: 5 Things to Try at Fu Run Restaurant

Manhattan’s Chinatown is world-famous for its plethora of Chinese options, and it’s a great place to fill the occasional craving— for Cantonese food, that is. But there’s only so much a girl can take, so we turned to Flushing’s Fu Run Restaurant (赋润东北美食) for a change...

NYC: 5 Vegan Things to Try at LuAnne’s Wild Ginger

I recently went to LuAnne’s Wild Ginger on a date–the restaurant had a great date night atmosphere with adorable but simple decor. Take a look at the server station! It’s as if we’re in Thailand! To start, we ordered a Thai iced tea and a scallion...

NYC: Our Latest Food Addictions

I go in cycles of food obsessions. They’re like cravings, only they go on for weeks at a time, are very specific, and sometimes indecent. I had a flaming affair with the spicy fried chicken at K Town Chicken & Hof. For almost two months, I dragged my friends there...

5 Things to Try at Kingside

While on a last minute trip to New York City, I stayed in Midtown West’s new Viceroy hotel, which opened late last year. Great stay. I even received amenities and a note from the general manager (ooops, too bad it was addressed to a Ms. Lisa ___). Thanks Lisa! Having...

NYC: 5 Things to Try at Niu Noodle House

After a day of sightseeing, accessory shopping on St. Mark’s or getting a prison tattoo, there are few things more welcoming than a hot, steaming bowl of ramen. In the West Village, Niu Noodle House is unlike most filmy, hole-in-the wall ramen shops.  There is nothing...
