Elizabeth Eats: Toro

Elizabeth Ginsburg, MBA Class of 2014

A lot of people roll their eyes at the tapas and small plates trend. There is no shortage of mediocre tapas restaurants and if you’re not a sharer then you’re definitely not a fan. Some people say small plates are overplayed, or you may find it cumbersome because you never know exactly how much to order. For this reason, I’m hesitant to characterize Toro, a newly opened restaurant on West 15th Street at 11th Avenue, as just a tapas restaurant. Point being, yes, Toro is a tapas restaurant, but it is one that warrants getting excited about.…

Brunch in the City!

Blue Water Grill
31 Union Square W
Looking to brunch in a relaxed yet proper setting, perhaps to bring your in-laws or date? You have to try this place! The Brunch menu boasts a variety of seafood selection, from lobster crab popover to crab cake benedicts. Prices are very reasonable once you factor in a complimentary alcoholic and hot beverage included with each brunch item. Also voted for the most expansive wine offerings in NYC, this restaurant is a good choice for business dinners.

The Best New York Eats

A native offers his suggestions after 30 years in the city

After thirty years lived in New York I am finally prepared to say farewell, but before I do I would like to leave behind some recommendations gleaned from a lifetime’s eating in this great city.

In many ways I am indebted to my roots in the borough of Queens. Although I have lived in Manhattan for over a decade I have never considered the island to be synonymous with the city. This has proved advantageous for me since I find it no less of a stigma to pay a visit to the East Village than I do to stop off in East New York.…

Five Delicious Summer Desserts

10 lbs. and many desserts later, summer is officially over.  I explored all things desserts in multiple locations over the past three months, from New York to Dallas to LA.  Here is a list of five places that I would recommend, if you ever find yourself in the area.

5. Oldie but Goodie: Diddy Riese
926 Broxton Avenue
Westwood, CA
What could be better than Dreyer’s Ice Cream sandwiched between two delicious cookies, all for $1.50?  Yes, for you native Californians, the price has increased 50% since the good old days when it was priced at $1.00… But seriously, it’s still just $1.50! …

Stern Eats Balade


I am very pleased to have experienced the beginnings of something that is very near and dear my heart and stomach: Stern Eats, the club-to-be for food. The group, which has been up and running on Facebook for over a month and has served as a forum to discuss restaurant recommendations and organize food outings, held its first formal event last week at Balade.

Balade is a Lebanese restaurant in the East Village, located on 1st Avenue between 12th and 13th Streets. The décor, with its mix of wood, Lebanese motif tiles and brick, evokes an atmosphere that is a blend of traditional and modern, old world meets new.…
