SoHo Cafe Review (New York, NY)

You can find SoHo Cafe located on the corner of Broadway & Broome in New York City’s fabulous SoHo district. With the perfect central location, the cafe experiences tonnes of foot-traffic from throngs of locals and tourists shopping in the popular and very busy area. We stopped by, feeling the need to refuel with a […]

Chipotle Mexican Grill – Financial District (New York, NY)

Where can you go for mammoth-sized burritos, perfectly crafted ripe and creamy guacamole, and ‘healthy-ish-fast-food’ burrito salad bowls? Chipotle of course! Since we don’t have a location in Vancouver, yet (one is coming soon, according to their official Twitter account) we always make a point of hitting up a Chipotle joint whenever we get the […]

Famous Original Ray’s Pizza – Midtown West (New York, NY)

With a plethora of Ray’s Pizza joints around New York City, it’s difficult to know who’s the best and who’s the original establishment. Variations include Famous Ray’s, Original Ray’s, Famous Original Ray’s, Original Famous Ray’s, Fred’s Ray’s, and even NOT Ray’s in Brooklyn! Apparently, the oldest is believed to be Ray’s in Little Italy (27 […]

Ideya Latin Bistro Review SoHo (New York, NY)

Ideya Latin Bistro, located in New York City’s SoHo district, has perfected the culinary confluence of Spanish, African and indigenous ingredients that characterizes Caribbean Latin cuisine. Located on West Broadway, between Grand & Broome Street, we dined at Ideya for lunch after visiting SoHo shopping haunts like Wooster Street Social Club, Bloomingdales, DASH, Topshop, Aritzia […]

Pinkberry Hell’s Kitchen Review (New York, NY)

Behind our Times Square hotel, in the Hell’s Kitchen district of Midtown Manhattan, lies a glorious Pinkberry location. Since Pinkberry in West Vancouver had yet to open, we were excited to indulge in their famous frozen yogurt. Having first sampled the treat in San Diego, this New York City visit was technically our second experience […]

Balthazar In SoHo (New York, NY) – Manhattan’s Famous French Bistro

Balthazar, evocative of a Paris brasserie in New York City’s trendy SoHo district, is a restaurant & bakery, and even has its own cookbook! Acclaimed as New York’s most authentic French bistro, the restaurant is ranked number one in Urbanspoon’s New York Fine Dining category and number one on the SoHo list – all for […]

Antonio’s Pizzeria Restaurant Review (Brooklyn, NY)

During our visit to Brooklyn, our tour-operator stopped at Antonio’s Pizzeria because he claimed it was the best pizza in New York. It was a sweltering hot day so we were all grateful to grab a bite and beverage on the tour. Located on Flatbush Avenue, in the Prospect Heights area of Brooklyn, Antonio’s Pizzeria […]

Dean & DeLuca Café Review – Midtown West (New York, NY)

Did you ever watch Felicity back in the day? The ’90s TV show is where I first heard about Dean & DeLuca (a chain of upscale markets and espresso bars). Although the company first opened in 1977 in the heart of SoHo, Felicity’s Dean & DeLuca set was modeled after their University Place café. The […]

Shake Shack Midtown West Review (New York, NY)

We had just arrived in NYC, fresh off a flight from Toronto, and checked into our SPG hotel (of course) in Midtown West. We ventured outside, taking in the sights of the Big Apple while strolling up 8th Avenue. We noticed a packed restaurant with a lineup out the door called the Shake Shack – it […]

Schnipper’s Quality Kitchen (New York, NY)

Like Shake Shack, we stumbled upon Schnipper’s Quality Kitchen in Midtown West one evening during our trip to NYC and decided to try it for dinner. This fancy burger joint was hard not to miss, with its big, slick storefront on an absolutely prime spot of real estate in the New York Times Building (the […]
