Food in Mouth

Day 3 of France Trip 2010

We're in Paris! I can't understand a damn thing! And it is fucking GLORIOUS! I have been baby-fied. Basically I'm staring at everything from signs to windows to buildings to fast food restaurants. I mean, it's all new to me at this point. Day 3 was a travel day from Brittany to Paris, so it features less food because we had to hustle a little. The TGV was working although news reported that south of France had no trains at all. Sucks to be them I guess. Lunch however, was awesome. It started with cornichons. Homemade cornichons. Yum. It was paired with some veal pork andouille. It was peppery and smokey, and pairs really well with the cornichons. I could eat these things all day and wonder how you find this in New York...

Kabab & Grill Review: Kabab grill and goaty stew

I was actually on my way to go check out Macaron Cafe but I was swayed by the huge 'Internet Access' banner. Why eat food when you can feed your body with broadband? The Kabab Grill attracted my attention because what's better than kababs when it's twenty degrees outside?

This is the second time in midtown where I saw an Indian place next to a Spanish food place, all inside the same place. Does that make any sense? Basically the Kabab Grill is one store, and inside, two different areas offering different foods. For some reason this just makes me happy beyond belief. This whole idea of random cultures together. It's naan meets ox tail. It's heaven as we know it. For a place like the...

Del Posto Review: Del Posto has a fabulous lunch deal

Del Posto has one of the best lunch deals in New York. Lately I've been really into deals, however I'll get into that more at the end of this post. Generally I wouldn't have time to really enjoy a sit down meal for lunch, but I took a day off to enjoy the ability to have a nice lunch at a NYTimes four-star restaurant. For dinner, Del Posto is a quite a bit more expensive. If you have the means to go at dinner, hey why not? But if you're looking for a steal of a meal, going for lunch is probably the way to go. For $29 dollars, you get three courses with white table clothes. It's a little strange to have people dust off crumbs off of the table for you, and also very embarrassing when you stain the tablecloth and they bring...
