Baconboozer is expanding.  And with that, I have been receiving more outreach from restaurants requesting reviews in exchange for meals.  I feel an obligation to be utterly and completely honest with my readers:  I love eating, and I am not made o...

Review of Maysville in New York City

Jason and I had tickets to see Avenue Q in Manhattan yesterday afternoon.  We decided to do brunch before the show… being a little bit tipsy seemed like the only way to go see an inappropriate puppet play. We decided on Maysville in Manhattan...

Review of French Louie and Grand Army Bar in Brooklyn, NY

In an attempt to cut back on my constantly controlling every aspect of our lives, last week I asked Jason to surprise me for our date night.  I felt totally wild.  He managed to keep the secret until we approached the place… French Louie.  ...

Review of Cebu Bar and Bistro in Brooklyn, New York

Jason and I have been working hard to expand this blog thing.  So when a friend of ours introduced us to the owners of Cebu Bar and Bistro in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn, we (obviously) instantly stalked the menus, photo galleries, yelp reviews, etc.  We...

Review of Victory Cantina in Staten Island, NY

Since the new year, Jason and I have been making a valiant effort to save some money and calories by not eating out during the week.  But let’s be real:  we could only hold out so long.  So after a long workday this past Tuesday, we headed o...

Review of Dover in Brooklyn, New York

Jason and I are planning for a light and clean start to 2016… We’ve each gained 10-15 pounds over the last few months, and both are craving a little bit of a healthy overhaul.  But new year, new me, right? So we decided to end 2015 with...

Review of Bin 5 in Staten Island

Bin 5 has been a favorite spot of mine for a while, now.  When I first stopped in a few years ago, it was all about the food and the atmosphere.  I loved the live jazz (Wednesdays and Thursdays), and cozy feel of the small and intimate space.  The...

Catching up

It’s been quite a while since my last post.  Over two months, actually.  My friends and family have been asking if I quit.  And as I approach the one year anniversary of launching this blog, I find myself a little bit perplexed.   First, le...

Review of Charlie Bird in NYC

Justin and I embarked on yet another Manhattan adventure last night.  We had bought tickets to see Bleachers at Terminal 5 a few months back.  Obviously dinner plans were a necessity, and thus were born 5:30 reservations at Charlie Bird.   I took...

Review of Frankies Spuntino 570 in NYC

Last Friday night, Justin and I declared a date night, and I let him pick the place.  As usual, he did not disappoint me with his choice:  Frankies Spuntino 570 on Hudson Street in New York City.  Justin had been to their smaller other location,...

Review of Staten Island’s Pizzeria Giove

After our miserably failed pizzeria excursion, Justin and I were dying to stop in Pizzeria Giove.  I had been to this place a few times before probably over a year ago, and never with Justin.  The place is – on a nice day – within walki...

Review of Brooklyn’s Xixa

A couple of weeks back, Justin and I went on a long-awaited double date with my best friend, Christina, and her fiancé, Chris.  We thought a lot about this double date:  should we cook a meal and eat at home?  Christina doesn’t like cheese...

Review of Tiny’s in NYC

Ah yes, my friends, it is true.  I gave in to the temptation of being absolutely wined, dined, and romanticized on Valentine’s Day for the first time ever.  Justin and I have visited many restaurants in our almost full year of dating.  But o...

Prime Meats Review

Justin and I declared last Friday night date night.  After a week full of salads, vegetables, and snack-less-ness, I was ready for a splurge, and Prime Meats fit the ticket perfectly… This is one of Justin’s favorite places, so nothing i...

Review of Carol’s Cafe in Staten Island

I had a $130 gift certificate to Carol’s Cafe that I had been hoarding for a while. And recently, when I read an article in the Staten Island Advance describing an upcoming renovation of the restaurant, with what seemed like a very loose and po...

Milk & Honey and Resto Review NYC

For my brother’s birthday celebration, it seemed only obvious that I would have to concoct a delicious plan for a night out. Saturday night came, and I gave my brother and his fiancé these directions: “Take the bus (x10) to the 23rd stre...

M. Wells Steakhouse & Anejo Review

Last Monday, Justin and I, along with a couple of friends, shared a delicious meal in Long Island City, Queens. First, I met Justin in the city at Anejo Tibeca. The bar upstairs, where we sat, was nice. The restaurant was preparing for a fundraiser e...

Talde and the Black Keys

When Justin asked me, “Wanna go see the Black Keys at Barclays,” it really didn’t take me longer than a second to say, “Definitely.” So, last Wednesday, September 24, that’s what we did. The most important question...

Marc Forgione & Billy Joel

On Wednesday, September 17, Justin and I took what may have been my favorite adventure. I arrived at Marc Forgione’s at about 5:00 for our 5:30 reservation. Ample time to grab a drink at the bar and obsess over the perfect decor. Let me begin b...
