The “before” shots of our newest project. On the left, built in the 19th century and serving as the Old Hoxie fire station; on the right, a 20th century neighborhood bar. “After” - 21st century restaurant- coming soon...

Still dreaming about my lunch from yesterday - the best gyro I’ve ever tasted.. shavings of well-seasoned pork, each bite comprised alternatingly of crunchy fried bits and fat-slicked hunks that fell apart at the touch...

The Sri Lankan table.
...at the oldest Sri Lankan restaurant in New York, in one of the largest communities of Sri Lankans outside of Sri Lanka.

Hell. Yes.
So excited to have found a few bottles of this excellent Les Onglés Chenin blanc from Stéphane Bernaudeau at @vervewine in TriBeCa! So minerally, with a hint of hazelnutty oxidative richness on the finish.. Discovered it last week at @fourhorsemenbk , my new favorite wine bar in Bk!

Vintage 1950s soda ad, taking up an entire wall at the charming Russian-expat hangout @anywaycafe in Sheepshead Bay. Cott Beverages is still around - it owns the company that developed RC Cola, the first diet soda in the world, created for diabetics; the same company also produced the once-fictitious Buzz Cola from The Simpsons...

When the high barely hits 40F and I’m fighting a cold, nothing comforts as much as this rich, chicken-y matzo ball soup from @mileenddeli .
