Welcome to a new segment on this blog. On Mondays get ready for a quick list of the best restaurants, dishes, or food trends in a certain category. There are so many great things to eat and drink in the city and think of this as your resource to find the absolute best.

If you look around the city this week, it seems that every bar wants to be German. Blue and white flags are everywhere, waitresses wear traditional garb are outside taking a smoke break, and the faint sound of an oompah band can be heard on just about any street.

It’s Oktoberfest! Perfect time to celebrate and soak up German culture. But make sure you find your way to an authentic German bar or restaurant and not get stuck at an Irish bar in disguise. Here are the seven best German bars in NYC (in no particular order): (more…)

Come back every Wednesday for another funny, informative video documenting my inept food adventures. NYC Brewery Tour explores the growing craft brewery scene in the city and visits all the unlikely spots that are brewing fresh, delicious beer. 

Now that the weather is starting to get nice again, it’s a perfect time to hop on a bus and visit some breweries on Urban Oyster’s NYC Brewery Tour.

One of my favorites is deep into Queens in a neighborhood called Glendale where Finback is making really unique and tasty concoctions.

Village Voice's BROOKLYN POUROnce again, the beer lovers of New York descended on the beautiful Skylight Hanson One in Fort Greene for Village Voice’s annual Brooklyn Pour. I was invited and although my Saturday afternoon was booked with tours, movie screeings, and a dinner event, I somehow managed to slip in at least 45 minutes of celebrating the new and exciting world of local beer.

Each Friday, I get a lesson in the NYC brewery scene in these funny and informative videos promoting Urban Oyster’s NYC Brewery Tour

Like many people, I have a grandmother who lives in the residental area between here and Long Island. It’s not easy to get to the far reaches of Queens, so I rented a ZipCar to meet her for dinner. On this particular trip, I somehow get sidetracked in Glendale when I run into Meredith who makes me stray from the path and join her on a brewery visit. Who knew Finback was making full-flavored, unique brews all the way out here in Queens?

Beers were poured from many of the local NYC breweries and you can bet I tasted as many as possible.
