I had the pleasure of dining at Nobu in TriBeCa, NY.  Perfect ambiance, great food and service.  To start, the rock shrimp tempura with the creamy spicy sauce was an amazing appetizer.  To follow up with this, I had to try their sushi.  I mean this is Nobu we're talking about.  I decided to try [...]

East Village, NY has to have some of the best restaurants in New York City.  I stumbled upon this gem in search of a good happy hour in the area.  Unfortunately it ended at 7pm here so I missed the happy hour but boy did they make that up with the delectable dishes they have [...]
