Big Gay Ice Cream open till 11pm in the winter, I think midnight in the summer.

If you’re in the East Village and have just finished stuffing yourself with awesome Japanese food and would like good delicious soft serve and also do not mind NOT having a place to sit, you’re probably going to Big Gay Ice Cream.

Fu Ren's Pork Ball Soup

Fu Ren is a pretty excellent northern Chinese restaurant with a little bit of middle eastern influence in the Flushing area.   If you’re in the mood for solid Chinese comfort food, this should be one of the first choices you consider.

I love lamp, I meant lamb

2013 and fewd blog is back!  I mean we were never gone in the first place but we did get a little neglectful for the blog.  Bad fewd bloggers!  So here we go our new year dinner.  We went to the original Blue Ribbon in NYC at around 1:30AM, hungry and ready to start the year with a wallet pulverizing meal at one of our favorite places to dine.

the sign of pig land

 

A recent trip to Chicago in early October has inspired us to…what else? EAT! We’ve seen Republican on TV for quite a few times, including Cooking Channel’s Unique Eats, and we’ve been wanting to try the pork rind famous place.

Great fewd selections from some of the most popular restaurants in NY + celebrity chefs + awesome music (the Roots on Saturday and Hall & Oates on Sunday) = GoogaMooga? At least that’s what was advertised. The tix were free, but people struggled to fight for them online. There was also the option of Extra Mooga, which cost $250. Those who paid the big bucks would be able to meet with celebrity chefs i.e.  Anthony Bourdain, David Chang, and Tom Colicchio.

This the very first Googa Mooga. While we had a pretty good time on Saturday, there were certainly elements of the festival that needed improvement.

smoked salmon with everything bagel and scallion cream cheese

east coast flounder with langoustine, black truffle cauliflower puree, romanesco ($15 supplement)

Cow Cow and I went to this beautiful establishment in the financial district back in January, and I gotta say, it’s probably one of the best meals we’ve had in New York. The restaurant’s website may seem a little dated, however this is a Michelin 2-star restaurant that offers a lot of creativity and balanced flavors by head chef Shaun Hergatt and pastry chef Jennifer Yee.
