This Little Piggy Had Roast Beef • Manhattan

I’ve been rolling through the East Village a lot this week. The difference in the hood from when I lived off the corner of 14th and 2nd is remarkable. Not that this is news to me just that I chose now to discuss it. In those days Crif Dog had just popped up, we’d dance the night away...

Best Wings in Brooklyn 2012

Last Saturday Anthony and I were privileged to be invited, for our third year, to the annual Best Wings in Brooklyn competition hosted at Red Star Bar. This year we took a different approach.

Best Wings In Brooklyn 2011

This past Saturday the second annual Best Wings in Brooklyn competition was hosted by Red Star Bar. It was a lot of fun. Jay and I rolled up around 1 pm, an hour before the chicken wing tasting began. Before we get into the lay of the land, the competitors and the wings, let’s cut right to the...

Dogged Legacy

Chicago hot dogs are famous like their pizza. I am not sure I understand why on either account. To be fair I was told to visit this place NOT for the hot dogs but for the Italian beef sandwich pictured below. The beef was a bit disappointing as well. It was sort of like a mediocre Philly cheese...

Lunch at Mile 14

This past Sunday I participated in the 5 Boro Bike Tour. Starting in lower Manhattan and heading north, the tour rounds out through each borough ending up in Staten Island. I didn’t make it past Williamsburg. But I did make it to 4 our of the 5 boroughs. You all know I am on the never ending...

Best Wings in Brooklyn

This past Saturday I was invited to the Red Star Bar to taste and chat with some of the best wing and wing makers Brooklyn has to offer. The Best Wings in Brooklyn Competition featured 14 of the tastiest chicken wing recipes Kings county has to offer. I was lucky enough to sneak in an hour before...

We are the well fed champions!!!

A half a pound of meat sits uneasy in my stomach as Mo winds up one last time to throw his, hopefully, last strike. The fans are going crazy, chanting, stomping and clapping. The ball is released, my stomach jumps again. The Lobel steak sandwich juices, blue moon beer and double hot chocolate all...

Dining out at Citi Field

Citi Field is home of the New York Mets and is a beautiful stadium. Last night was my first time there and my 3 friends wanted to break me in (Tim, Seth, & Brian). All are Met fans but me. Yankees all the way! They showed me around the stadium and we went right for the good stuff, the food of...
