We've got the always-excellent Rosa Mexicana a few blocks down the street for sit-down Mexican (and guacamole made right in front of you!), but for the quick chips-and-guacamole fix, it's difficult to beat Chipotle.  The chips even come in a bag that says 'CHIPS'!  For clarity of message, that hard to top.  And there is Read the Rest…

(image ganked from here) Deli Marche was our deli across the street.  I say 'was' here because it closed down last week.  One of the times I'm most amused about the skewed New York perspective is when my relatives come to town — whenever we're going to a museum or the theater and I pull Read the Rest…

(image ganked from here) You guys! There's a truck that makes waffles that has come to our building for every morning of the past two weeks that I have remembered to notice it.  This is such an exciting thing, because, waffles!  Are they not superior breakfast foods?  Especially when one puts chocolate and fruit and Read the Rest…

(photo ganked from here) We've got a Le Pain Quotidien down the block from us (actually looking at the 'coming soon' signs down the street, it looks like there may be another within reasonable walking distance in the very near future), and they are an excellent thing. (When you order hot chocolate at Le Pain Read the Rest…

(photo ganked from here) Laut Thai is a (relatively) new Thai-Malaysian restaurant down on 18th Street.  The last time I went there it was the middle of a snowstorm and my friend and I both ended up soaked and very grateful for their delicious hot soup. However!  As we have already established, delicious hot soup Read the Rest…

(picture ganked from here) Tablespoon is one of my favorite places to go for a snack in the flatiron district.  They have new kinds of quiche and soup every day (always an excellent thing), but what makes the top of my list is that their brownies are out of this world delicious. Tablespoon is set Read the Rest…

(photo ganked from here) For those of you who don't live across the street from Eataly (as we do), it is a combination grocery store-restaurant, and yes, that's exactly as complicated as it sounds.  Eataly is a grocery store with different little restaurant-lets inside where you can eat dessert, pizza, vegetables, meat, etc.  That makes Read the Rest…

Soup has got to be one of the worst snacks every because it is extremely unportable.  It is liquid!  It sloshes!  You cannot turn it upside-down without peril! However.  It is now becoming fall, so I am desirous of eating soup just about all the time, as it is warm and typically full of delicious Read the Rest…

(photo ganked from here) You know what's a cool thing? Kelvin Slush.  They take the traditional convenience store concept of a slushie and give it an all-natural (also all-awesome) update.  So you get traditional frozen drink/slush in all-new flavors (it's a mix-and-match) like ginger, citrus, tea, peach, basil and the list goes on.  You may Read the Rest…

Cupcake Stop! The #1 best thing about the Cupcake Stop is that they are ten feet away from our office door.  They are in a mobile form (as pictured, in a truck), so they are not always ten feet away from our office door, but when they are there, it's so close!  We can have Read the Rest…
