Brunching Manhattan style. @freehandhotels has some exotic tapestry and decor, some rustic big wood tables with fur on couches. 1. FRENCH FRIES harissa aioli and a salad
Oda House in East Village is one of my favorite restaurants. There’s cheese, breads stuffed with potatoes and cheese, dumpling-ish things, yogurt in a earth vessel, and fancy eggs in bread for friends. Here’s what I got on my most recent visit.
At Patrizia’s Pizza and Pasta, I decided to satisfy my pasta cravings. Ordered the pesto Gnocchi that lacked salt. Good looking plate though, very heavy resulting in me taking in more than half of it home.
Brunch is a part of Manhattan culture, don’t defy it. Be part of it. And then go to Vic’s in NoHo. Found and reserved by my friend, Vic’s has a refreshing sunlit section in addition to a regular seating area. And the food, well, it’s fantastic.
I was on the Keto diet. Then I visited Chicago and Keto was no more part of my diet. Because once we got through part 1, my friend took me to a bar that had 10-15 different variations of grilled cheeses. How can one be on a diet around a grilled cheese sandwich. This was…

This was a fun dinner. At the restaurant that replaced a Parsi-focused, vegetarian options lacking, Paowalla (guy who has bread), The Bombay Bread Bar is a refreshing twist on urban and contemporary Indian food. Definitely a revisit / must-go restaurant near SoHo’s famous shopping area.
Quattro in Bombay should be an annual pilgrimage The food is that good. The presentation is spectacular. Nothing else matters. And its sister restaurant is equally fantastic. The name’s Italian but food served is Italian and Mexican. Quattro is the second vegetarian restaurant by the brains behind SpiceKlub, another modernist Indian vegetarian restaurant in Bombay.
New York city has suddenly found itself a new range of contemporary Indian food. Imli is one of these restaurants and the food here is delicious.
