After taking a little break from dining out, I made up for lost time enjoying a staycation weekend of dining out over President’s Weekend as well as a visit from mom, giving me a great excuse to try new spots and revisit old favorites!
First up, Martina is the fast-casual little sister to Marta, a Danny Meyer pizza mecca. The pies come out quick, are paper thin, and the most expensive menu item tops out at $12 making it perfect for a casual date night. The meatballs and white beans were also delish. They do offer half bottles of Krug Champagne if you’re feeling fancy!
After over a year, I made it back to Hearth in the East Village. There is nothing better than sitting at the chef’s counter and watching the action in the kitchen! They are also offering 20% off white wines by the bottle and have so many fun things to choose from so go now!!!
I was so sad to hear that Two Hands is no longer serving dinner! It was one of our favorites for a quick, easy, relatively healthy and affordable dinner spot. But their brunch is equally delicious, if a bit more hectic and sceney. I finally tried the ricotta hotcake and it was what dreams are made of!
Brunch at Loring Place had to end with the infamous “blizzard”.
Any meal at Buvette is a treat but there is something extra special about breakfast at the bar. The waiter was hard-selling the brioche fresh out of the oven which came with the most adorable pat of butter and fresh jam. The special avocado toast with spicy yogurt was filling and delicious.
My best foodie friend once told me she had one of the best meals of her life at Somtum Der and I’ve been meaning to go ever since. It was seriously delicious, full post coming soon as to what we ate and drank (they allow BYOB for $10 corkage!!), but we ended the night with the shaved ice with condensed milk, which is certainly something to look at but was not why you want to come here!
Out in Clinton Hill we had a delicious and colorful brunch at Golda.
