My search for the best beer in New York continues….
It’s so cool is how tight-knit the local craft beer world is in New York. Most times when I see a unique can being sold, it’s actually a collaboration between breweries. Oftentimes it’s a brewery in Queens and the Bronx coming together, but for Taco Wednesday the breweries are practically neighbors. (more…)

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

As much as I’d like to eat four donuts, the reality is I would hurt myself. We have to know our limitations. At Rider, they were kind enough to let me order just one donut. It was sprinkled with lemon and fennel sugar with a side of creme fraiche. It turned out to be so good I wanted three more.

Price: $12

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

Although it may sound strange to American tastes, buttery miso makes a very smart base for ice cream – especially when studded with sweet and slightly acidic cherry pieces. After tasting this, the concept of cherry vanilla becomes irrelevant. How come more people aren’t demanding Miso Cherry?

Egg sandwiches are so ubiquitous in New York that I probably should devote an entire journey to searching for the best of them. Each year I discover a new often hipster place upgrading our typical breakfast sandwich. This one is a juice and coffee bar in the heart of Williamsburg and their hefty egg sandwich is no joke. A sweet, buttery Parker roll holds up scrambled eggs and white cheddar cheese and then soaks up the smashed avocado and generous slathering of peppy spicy sriracha. Price: $6

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

THE GOOD BATCH, 936 Fulton Street, Clinton Hill, BrooklynThe Vendy Awards is my favorite day of the year. For the last eight years, I have done everything in my power to attend the festival dedicated to the best street food in the city. Not only is it a full day of eating, but it’s a day to support the Street Vendor Project and their advocacy work in fighting for better laws and rights of street vendors.

I am very invested in the day for many reasons: a) I lead food cart tours for Turnstile Tours, b) we’re sponsors of the event, c) I believe in the cause, and d) the food is undeniably delicious. And in years past, I have spent weeks documenting the nominees through a series of videos.

But this year, because I was in Europe for most of the summer, I was not able to dedicate as much time to meeting and documenting the vendors and their businesses. In fact, going into the Vendy Awards, I was only familiar with a handful of the nominees. Which meant I had to eat from every single one of the 26 nominees in less than four hours.
