I’m counting down the 100 best dishes I tasted in 2016…

It doesn’t get trendier than avocado toast. It’s as simple as can be – smashed avocado maybe toasted with some lemon and chili flakes and placed on a thick piece of toast. No wonder it’s such a brunch sensation. Gotan adds a little salty feta, bright mint, and sweet cherry tomatoes for a complete midday experience. Price: $8

Every week, I document another dish that impressed and satiated me during my food adventures around New York City

GALERIA, 43 Clinton Street (between Stanton and Rivington Street), Lower East Side

If you like your trendy rice bowl so much, you can even take it home with you. Because in addition to the food, the bowls are also for sale at Galeria. This light breezy Brazilian café moonlights as an art gallery and a showroom. It’s very funky and artsy with an interesting menu.

Just as IKEA serves Swedish meatballs for obvious reasons, Galeria concentrates on Brazilian food. I’ve been intrigued by their tapioca sandwiches and wowed by their brigadeiro chocolate truffles. But what’s really made an impression on me here is their acaí bowl. (more…)

TWO HANDS BAR & RESTAURANT, 251 Church Street (between Franklin and Leonard Street), Tribeca

When you see the word cake on a brunch menu, odds are it is off-limits for those practicing a gluten-free diet. I imagine celiacs dream of pancakes every Sunday morning. Well, hallelujah, there is an option available at the trendy new brunch mecca Two Hands Bar & Restaurant.

This Australian-owned restaurant is a larger and more food-focused location of Nolita’s Two Hands, which garners long lines for its flat whites and avocado toasts. Here, the menu is much more extensive and even includes a dinner option.

One of these days I’d like to try their evening menu, but I could tell by the bright and lively interior, that brunch is the way to go here.

COURT STREET GROCERS, 485 Court Street (between Luquer Street and Huntington Street), Carroll Gardens, Brooklyn

Breakfast sandwiches were one of the hottest dishes a few years ago. Every restaurant was doing them (as long as they were open for breakfast, of course). But now we’re so immersed in Instagram-friendly food that the simple breakfast sandwich has gotten a little less attention.

DOUGH, 305 Franklin Avenue (at Lafayette Avenue), Clinton Hill, Brooklyn

If you’d asked me to tell you about Dough, the growing New York business from chef Fany Gerson, I would have told you that they make the absolute best doughnuts in the city. Big, yeasty, and inventive – they’re everything you want a doughnut to be.

But if you asked me to talk more about their food, I would have looked at you with confusion. What else could Dough possibly do? (more…)

Quiche at MAMAN

Last year, I couldn’t get enough of Maman’s game-changing chocolate chip cookie. This year, I found myself at the trendy French café a bit earlier in the day. So instead of indulging on a cookie at 10am, I became slightly addicted to their housemade quiche. They offer quite a variety of fillings, but I always enjoyed the fresh mozzarella and prosciutto or the roasted leeks and Dijon mustard. The tops are always nicely caramelized and the pastry shell is absolute perfection. Price: $6
